We may already know the results thanks to the most talked about spoiler this site has ever run (as featured in The Daily Star, The Daily Mirror, The Sun, The Daily Mail and much much more) but the Strictly Christmas Special is finally here.
Who was a Christmas Cracker? And who was a Turkey? Most importantly did the right person win? You can let me know your thoughts on anything to do with today’s Christmas Special right here in the comments or over on Facebook or Twitter. It’s Christmas so I’ll probably be too drunk to read your comments but post them anyway ?
As I’ve said on Facebook and Twitter, I won’t be working (yes this is actually becoming a part time job for me believe it or not) on Christmas Day so there won’t be a tweet or Facebook along to the show and this post has been set up to automatically post before the start of the show.
No polls today either, there doesn’t seem to be any point in polling you on something you already know the outcome of.
I’d like to take the opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Obviously things will now start getting quiet here at the home of the Strictly Spoiler for a while now (unless the BBC take on my April Fool idea of running a year long series) but I’ll be back sometime around August next year with the pre series build up and may post strictly news from time to time if I get chance.
Until then, keeeeep dancing!
The BBC last night revealed the 6 participants to be participating in this year’s Christmas Special and they are all Ghosts of Strictly Past. So just who is participating? Here is the list:
Denise Lewis – Denise was a runner up to Jill Halfpenny way back in series 2 of Strictly
Ainsley Harriot – Ainsley was one of last year’s “comedy” contestants before being eliminated in week 5
Pamela Stephenson – Pamela has the honour of being the oldest contestant to make the final which she did in the 2010 series eventually finishing in 3rd
Gethin Jones – These days he is a reporter on It Takes Two but Gethin also took part in the 2007 series taking 3rd place
Frankie Bridge – Frankie was a runner up in the 2014 series losing out on the glitterball to Caroline Flack
Melvin Odoom – First to be eliminated this series after losing out in one of the most controversial Strictly moments ever when he was eliminated on public vote alone without a chance to save himself after Anastacia was unable to Dance Off, Melvin has now been given a 2nd chance to show the public his moves
Which pros the participants will be partnered with and the dances they will be performing are still to be announced.
What do you think of the lineup. You can as always let me know in the comments section or over on Facebook and Twitter (remember to tag @davejthorp and include #StrictlySpoiler on Twitter). By joining the discussion and telling me what you think you are earning entries into the competition to win a £20 Amazon UK voucher and possibly a Kindle Fire Tablet.
Merry Christmas to all visitors to this site!!
The Christmas Special is currently airing for the benefit of anyone not too full on Turkey and Booze (so probably not me then). Of course most of us already know the result thanks to the Christmas Special Spoiler but we can still enjoy the show assuming we are conscious!
What do you think of the Christmas Special performances? Let me know in the new and improved comments section using the comment link above.
No poll for this special as there didn’t seem a great deal of point in polling people about something we already know the results of!
