The Strictly Spoiler 2020 Competition

SURPRISE!!!!

I know I said there would be no competitions this series due to the ongoing pandemic but I’ve been looking down the back of the sofa and coppering up and I’ve managed to locate some prizes for the final weekend.

I have two £50 Amazon UK vouchers up for grabs to one lucky person on the Facebook Page and one lucky person over on Twitter during next week’s final.

All you have to do to enter is to join in with the discussion on either of those networks and make sure you like/follow the profiles on those networks.

Keep an eye out as I’ll be rushing out my series where I look at the finalists throughout the day as real life got in the way during the week. Don’t forget to comment on the posts on the social networks when you see them for your chance to win!

Boring Legal Bit

  1. The competition is open to all UK and Republic of Ireland residents with a Facebook or Twitter account with the exception of close friends/relatives of the promoter.
  2. The competition runs on 19/12/20 across the entire day. Entry opens from the time the promoter first posts on those networks during the day and closes at midnight.
  3. There are two prizes of a £50 Amazon UK voucher available. No cash or other alternative prize is available
  4. Entrants will be required to reply to any post put out by the promoter on the social networks during the promotional period. Only posts posted on the day of the promotion will count for the purposes of this competition. Replies to other posts may not be included in the draws and direct messages will not be included in the draws
  5. Entrants may enter multiple times across both networks however should an entrant be judged by the promoter to be spamming on those networks to be artificially inflating their entry count the promoter may disqualify those entries at his discretion. The purpose of this competition is to promote discussion during the final day. As long as entrants keep to the spirit of this entries should not be disqualified
  6. A winner will be selected at random from all valid comments on each network
  7. In the event that a selected winner is not following/liking the required social networking profiles or is ineligible for any other reason a redraw will take place on the same network
  8. Winners will be contacted on the respective social network and have 7 days to confirm acceptance of their prize and provide any details required in order to allow delivery of their prize. Any personal information provided will be processed under GDPR, only used for the purposes of allowing delivery of a prize and not passed onto any 3rd party with the exception of Amazon to allow delivery of the prize
  9. Should a winner not confirm acceptance of their prize or provide the required details within 7 days of being contacted the prize will be forfeit and will not be offered to another participant
  10. Prizes will be paid out within 6 weeks of the requested details being provided
  11. The promoter reserves the right to amend these terms and conditions or withdraw the competition should it become necessary to do so for any reason outside of his control including but not limited to any issues arising because of Covid-19
  12. This competition is promoted by Dave Thorp t/a The Strictly Spoiler and is not connected with any other party

Strictly Come Dancing 2020 – Who Do You Want To Win? (poll)

Ordinarily I’d change my poll question during the semi final and ask who your winner is. However due to having to try and capture your BBC votes with the exit poll in case it was required for the spoiler I wasn’t able to do that this week.

So here it is instead! I’m asking you who your winner is. There can only be one winner so please only select one answer. The system won’t allow more or fewer votes! Also don’t be a robot. The poll system doesn’t like robots!

This poll is no longer accepting votes

Strictly Come Dancing 2020 - Who do you want to win? (select 1 option only)

Keep tuned as plenty more content is coming to this site over the next week. I’ll be looking at each of the 4 finalists and their journeys so far. Plus I might have a little surprise in store for those of you on Facebook and Twitter so keep an eye out for that!

Providing this site is still going to cost me close to £1000 this series especially as I now have to maintain powerful servers on Sundays as well as Saturday night due to increased demand across Sunday! 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.

Don’t forget if you do switch to enter their competition to win an Electric Car. You should see details on how to enter in your account dashboard.

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!

Ranvir Singh Eliminated From Strictly Come Dancing 2020

As revealed in last night’s Strictly Spoiler, Ranvir and Giovanni have been eliminated after losing in the dance off to dance off regulars Jamie and Karen.

Complaints to the BBC

You can relive their Waltz from last night’s semi final in the video below:

The finalists in the order of qualification are:

Maisie and Gorka
HRVY and Janette
Bill and Oti
Jamie and Karen

Did the right couple leave? As always you can let me know your thoughts about that or anything else to do with tonight’s not live results show right here in the comments or over on Facebook/Twitter.

You can still vote in this week’s poll and tell me who got your votes/who your favourites were. Like always you can select up to 3 options. Unless you are a robot. Then you can select zero options!

This poll is no longer accepting votes

Strictly 2020 Week 8 (Semi Final) - Who got your vote? (choose up to 3)

Talking of polls due to the exit poll being needed as a potential spoiler backup I wasn’t able to poll you on who you want to win like I normally would in the semi final. That poll will be coming in due course. Also please take a few minutes to read my annual thank you post where I thank a number of people who have contributed to another huge year for The Strictly Spoiler and helped the spoilers keep coming during what has been a difficult series!

That may be it for spoilers but it’s not it for content on this site. As well as the above mentioned poll I will have my normal series where I take a look at the finalists and their journey so far. Plus I will be running polls throughout next week’s final hoping to get one last spoiler as we predict our winner! Also I may have a little surprise up my sleeve for the final weekend so keep an eye out for that……
