First 2018 Celebrity Revealed

Yes of course this was an April Fool’s Joke. The Queen isn’t actually doing Strictly. That would be ridiculous! It’s actually Charles and Camilla……….

The Strictly Spoiler has been keeping its ear to the ground during the off season and that has paid dividends as I have learnt the details of the first celebrity to be signed up for the 2018 series. So who has the BBC managed to sign up I hear you ask? Well I can exclusively reveal to you that the first person to be donning their glittery costumes in a bid to win the glitterball is none other than………

Queen Elizabeth II

Speaking exclusively to The Strictly Spoiler, ma’am had this to say: “One has been a fan of Strictly Come Dancing for many years and one frequently watches the show with Prince Philip and the corgis. One has been practicing One’s Ballroom in preparation for the show however One has a lot of work to do on One’s Latin. One is very much looking forward to One’s Cha Cha Cha”

Anton Du Beke who is heavily rumoured to be partnering with Her Majesty this series had this to say: “I am absolutely delighted to be partnering with Her Majesty The Queen this series. Not only do I expect this to be a wonderful partnership but we are also guaranteed positive comments and lots of 10s from the judges and viewer votes as anyone doing anything contrary to this will be technically committing treason and can be legally executed as an enemy of the state. This may be my best chance of finally winning the bloody thing!”

Judge Craig Revel Horwood is expected to take up permanent residence in the Tower Of London shortly after week one of the new series and is unlikely to be seen for the remainder of the series. He will be replaced by Donny Osmond from week 2 onwards.

What do you think of the first addition to the class of 2018? You can let me know in the comments or over on Facebook/Twitter as usual.

Poll – Should the judges score routines during the final?

Poll of the week has been absent for the last 4 weeks but its back now. Truthfully if I continue doing polls on a weekly basis I’m going to run out of things to poll the community about so polls may not appear on a weekly basis but I’ll try and make them fairly regular still.

Before we go onto this week’s poll we need the results of the last poll. I asked you to decide your ultimate judging panel from all the judges who have ever sat on the panel. And your ultimate panel is:

Craig Revel Horwood (21%)
Len Goodman (18%)
Dame Darcey Bussell (17%)
Arlene Phillips (16%)

Slightly concerned by the 32 of you who voted for Donny Osmond. I’m hoping you misclicked!

Anyway on to this week and as many of you are aware Dancing On Ice ran their final last weekend but although the judges commented on each of the finalists routines they did not provide any scores.

So this week I’m asking should the judges score routines during the final? You can let me know your opinion below or on the social networks as usual

Weekly Poll – Who would sit on your ultimate judging panel

Time for another weekly poll and this week we are focusing on the judges. But before that we need the results from last week’s poll. Last week I asked you who your champion of champions was. 859 of you voted in that poll and I can reveal that clear winners with 31% of the vote were Jay and Aliona. Coming 2nd, 3rd and 4th (or as the BBC would call them – runners up) were respectively Harry and Aliona (10%), Kara and Artem (9%) and Mark and Karen (8%)

Turning to this week’s poll and this week we are looking at everyone to have ever sat on the judging panel, including guest judges, and asking which 4 would make up your ultimate judging panel. You can select up to 4 options
