You can let me know your thoughts on that or anything else to do with tonight’s launch show right here or over on Facebook or over on Twitter (on twitter tag @davejthorp and include the hashtag #StrictlySpoiler).

I don’t have any prizes quite yet but very soon the biggest competition this site has run kicks off with 4 prizes up for grabs each and every week of the 2018 series. You can find more details HERE. Or why not head on over to Facebook and join in with the celebrations when we reach 10k page likes. There’s a £50 voucher up for grabs on Facebook.

This website will be going down next weekend for maintenance whilst I migrate it over to the clustered hosting solution I used towards the end of the 2017 to keep the site up at peak times. At the same time my hosting costs will increase by a factor of 100 from £3 a month to £300 a month. Many of you have already helped me out so far this series including a very generous £25 donation this morning but I’m as grateful to those who donate £1 as I am to those who donate more. If you want to, and can afford to, help out with my increasing hosting costs, want to buy me a pint or just want to say thanks for all the spoilers you can donate through THIS LINK or using the button below. If you can use the link please do because if you use the button the big corporate bigwigs at PayPal will take all the money but if you use the link it sends it all to me

If you can’t get on the website during the maintenance period don’t panic, I haven’t gone anywhere and the site will be back up before the start of week 1 of the series.

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 Launch Show Discussion/Poll

Thanks to the pairings spoiler the launch show might not contain too many surprises but it is our first proper look at the class of 2017 and the 3 new female pros who have joined the lineup. In addition there is a tribute routine to the legend that is the late Sir Bruce Forsyth who sadly died last month.

What do you think of the launch show? And the class of 2017 now we’ve actually seen them on the dance floor. Was the tribute to Sir Bruce a fitting one? And how is new judge Shirley going to fit into Len’s shoes? As always you can let me know your thoughts on that or anything else to do with the Launch show right here in the comments or over on Facebook/Twitter. I don’t have any prizes for you quite yet but in 2 weeks time the largest competition I have run kicks off with triple the chances to win a prize compared to last series. All the info you need about that can be found here.

A poll is currently running but in the interest of keeping this post spoiler free just in case anyone who wants to remain spoiler free clicks on it I will only add the poll to the post once all the pairings have been announced. If you’ve already seen the spoiler and want to vote in the poll you can do so here
