Some contestants are allowed dance training and others are not - Pixie, Natalie, DVO, Rachel Stevens no, Caroline yes. (I suspect because she wasn't too good plus is a bit of a heifer and more women...

Pixie, Caroline and Simon were the best dancers, but I'd rather have watched Jake in the final as Simon slightly bores me.

I thought they were all fairly poor. Caroline's was the best of the bunch but I didn't like it much.

Frankie's was pedestrian and would have been fine in week 3, but as a showdance it was limp,...

We're talking at cross purposes. You said 'become an academic'. 'An academic' (noun) is someone who teaches at university level. It seems what you actually meant was 'become academic'...

Poor guy,

So why was such a big deal made out of Frankie's and Pixie's then? And DVO and Rachel Stevens etc...

Previous training is no big deal to me as I prefer to watch good dancing.

But if people are...

She studied for 3 years at a dance school, where she was apparently a star pupil. That's the equivalent of doing a degree in dance, it's not just a 'bit' of training.

Agreed.

I don't care how much dance training people have and I'd much rather watch good dancers than bad ones.

But if people are going to make a fuss about training at least apply it consistently.

It's the Mail what did you expect?

I didn't bother reading the bits about her private life as I have no interest in it or what the DM would have to say about it.

She didn't do 3 years of performing arts she did 3 years at a dance school - not the same thing. Performing Arts is very general and you can get through courses in without doing much dance at all if...

I think Pixie Caroline Jake or Simon would have been the most fun.

Simon's better than Jake but Jake's more of a performer.
