The Class Of 2020 – Pairings/Poll

Whilst I wasn’t able to confirm the pairings prior to the launch show (read more about why that is in my FAQ post – and I was right not to as the spoiler that was doing the rounds was wrong) we have just had them confirmed to us during the course of tonight’s Launch Show.

I can reveal that the 12 couples taking part are……..

Caroline and Johannes
Clara and Aljaz
Ranvir and Giovanni
HRVY and Janette
Jason and Luba
Jamie and Karen
Nicola and Katya
Jacqui and Anton
Maisie and Gorka
JJ and Amy
Bill and Oti
Max and Dianne

Complaints to the BBC

What do you think of the pairings? As always you can let me know here in the comments or over on Facebook or Twitter. Or you can vote in my poll below and tell me who your favourite couples are. As always I’ll let you pick up to 3 options. I’ve had to reset the poll due to sabotage by bots overnight. I’m trying a different poll system to see if I can block them

This poll is no longer accepting votes

Class of 2020 - Who are your favourite couples? (Select up to 3)

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!

Strictly Come Dancing 2020 – Launch Show Discussion

After what has seemed like the longest year ever we are finally here. A bit later than planned but we made it! Tonight is the launch of the 2020 series of Strictly Come Dancing! And its also our first chance to see the class of 2020 out on the dance floor and paired up.

In a break with the norm there was no pairings spoiler this year or at least not one I was willing to stake my reputation on as the source was Twitter and they are notoriously unreliable as anyone around at 10pm on a Saturday night will know! So we are going into the launch show blind and will be discovering the parings together.

You can let me and the rest of the community know your thoughts on anything to do with tonight’s show right here in the comments. Or head on over to Facebook or Twitter to get involved in the discussions on those networks.

Another post will be coming later tonight once all the couples have been announced to confirm the couples and open a poll on your initial impressions so be sure to look out for that.

Please also check out my FAQ post which answers a lot of the questions coming into my inbox concerning the spoiler and how things are going to run this year in the age of Covid-19. It also goes into a little more depth as to why there wasn’t a pairings spoiler and what plans I have for the regular spoiler.

Strictly Come Dancing 2019 – Launch Show Discussion/Poll

The launch show may not bring much in the way of surprises thanks to the Pairings Spoiler but there will still be lots to talk about. This is our first proper look at the class of 2019 and the first time we will see them paired with their professional partners.

One of the couples will not be participating as Jamie announced he has retired from the series due to injury however a replacement is expected to be announced in the coming days (possibly tomorrow)

But who stood out for you in tonight’s launch show. And who might be first out. You can let me know here in the comments section or over on Facebook or Twitter. I’ve no prizes yet for getting involved but when the series kicks off proper you can win iPads or Amazon Vouchers in the 2019 Strictly Spoiler Competition.

Normally I’d be posting a poll once everyone has been paired up but I’m going to hang fire until Jamie’s replacement has been announced so watch out for that in the coming days! It will be added to this post and will also be on the contestant announcement post! Poll is now open below!
