That's the main problem for me. I think it's good to have a variety of experience, but when so many of the contestants have had dance training, and some of it considerable, then it makes entering...

Not as a matter of course, but I do find it annoying when you are in the supermarket and people are getting in the way because they are just having a general chat as they push the trolley around...

Giving them a longer sentence than they are expected to serve means they can be kept in for the full length if they are particularly badly behaved or lack remorse.

It's not like she's calling herself a celebrity heart surgeon or aeronautical engineer. You need qualifications and accreditation to do those jobs. You don't to cook.

So long as she's not...

It was never that big a deal in the bible. It was just tradition back in the day (before contraception) that if you slept with a woman, you should marry her, which is pretty much all the bible said....

I know you said Ferrer and Murray were similar talent-wise, as well as achievement wise. I think both are bonkers.

I agree Gasquet's talent outweights his achievements, but I don't think Ferrer's...

I was brought up to use manners too. The difference is that I don't think it's part of basic 'manners' to mouth thank-you to a tv camera. I can see it might be a natural reaction for the tv...

If you compare achievements, the gulf is massive. Never mind slams, look at their record in Masters. Murray has nine, with one of the best records in the Open era. Ferrer has one, which he won...

I think Scott is a bit shell-shocked and overly nervous, so when it comes to the criticism, he knows he has to accept it, but isn't sure how to react. I think it would help if Joanne could break the...

Anyone saying 'how dare people save her', can't have watched the show, because if you are third bottom on the judges leader-board, then technically you don't deserve to be in the dance-off, never...

Really? There's a long tradition of reality tv contestants mouthing thank you to a tv camera?:confused:

I don't mind if they do it, but at best, it's all a bit 'knowing' to do so. At worst, it's...

To be fair, the person you think is being nasty thought you were being nasty about Alison, so they were sticking up for her. :confused:

Bit sad to see Tim go, but he was one of the weakest. ...

I like Alison too, and enjoy her dancing, but it seems fairly obvious to me (a very non-expert) that her footwork is underwhelming. She did joke about it on ITT that she thought she was doing loads,...

It's the other way around. He wouldn't be there if he weren't popular. If he added nothing to the broadcast, they'd have ditched him years ago. He's got, then held onto one of the most sought...

It doesn't matter why people like him, or if everyone likes him. The fact is that he's one of the most popular DJs on one of the country's most popular radio stations.

The introduced a separate "save me skate" in DOI in the last few years, and I think it could be a re-working of a previous skate that had gone down well with everyone. It did make things a little ...

They said 100% of the money raised is going to the charity, Cancer Research, and they are a well established charity, so I don't think there is much to worry about there.
