FINALLY!!!!!! A month later than normal but we are finally here! It’s Week 1 of Strictly and our first chance to see the 12 couples taking part this series taking to the floor. Whilst there’s no elimination this week and therefore no spoiler because the BBC don’t feel I’ve lost enough earnings yet this year there will still be much to discuss.
But who was worth the wait and who should have waited even longer? You can let me know your thoughts about that or anything to do with tonight’s show right here in the comments or by heading over to Facebook or Twitter.
Sadly there’s no prizes for getting involved in the discussion this series due to the pandemic and the earlier mentioned loss of income but if last week was anything to go by there’s still going to be lots of discussions in the community. You can read more about the way the pandemic is affecting the operation of this website over on my FAQ post.
As always a poll will open right here once all the couples have danced so you can let me know who your favourites were. You may not see the results straight away after you have voted due to me testing a system ready for next week for reasons covered in the FAQ but I will open the results up later tonight or tomorrow. Also depending on if you act like a robot you may be challenged to prove you are human as last week robots attempted to sabotage my poll.
It’s been a tough year for all of us but providing this site is still going to cost me close to £1000 this series. I always stress this on the donation links but it is more important than ever in 2020 that you only consider helping me out with these costs if you can afford to do so. I would not want to cause anyone else hardship because they chose to help me out. However all donations are as ever gratefully received. You can make a one time donation by clicking on THIS LINK or using the button below:
Also new for 2020 you can make a regular donation by becoming a patreon. Donations on patreon start at just the price of a coffee a month and if the patreon page takes off I can start looking at patreon exclusive content/rewards.
There’s also ways you can help me out for free and even make some money yourself by doing so. One way I’ve been plugging on social media a lot these last few weeks is by checking your energy prices and earning yourselves £50 in the bargain by switching using my magic link (you must complete the switch using the link and not just get a quote which you come back to later). Octopus energy have 100% green electricity, are a Which recommended supplier and were one of the few suppliers to maintain a full telephone service during the pandemic. They’re a different supplier to the one I was recommending last series and are definitely worth a look as we head into the colder months.
Switching energy suppliers is quick (it takes about 2 minutes to sign up from my link and usually about 3 weeks for the process to complete), there is no interruption to your energy supply, no engineers have to visit and you don’t need to change you meters (unless you sign up to a smart tariff and don’t have a compatible meter). I get £50 from every switch so this does help me out quite a bit.
Alternatively you can help me out by doing things as simple as liking all my content, sharing it and getting involved in the discussions on the social networks. This all helps to increase my visibility and get me noticed on those networks and is also appreciated!
The site will be going down at some point next week while I move it to the cluster solution I use to keep the site up when it’s getting over 900k views in 24 hours so if you can’t access it don’t worry it will be back!
