I'm delighted it's back and I look forward to it every year and so do the many who donate or the programme wouldn't be repeated year after year.

The first series was great.
But since Robert Webb won it with his Flashdance routine there have been so many contestants in successive series who think they're funny by dressing up in drag and possibly think it's a ticket to give them a better chance of winning.

It'll be interesting to see what comedy lazy arses decide to take the predictable man dressed up as a woman route.
I prefer the comedy element as opposed to those who could possibly view it as a career move into singing - now those we certainly do have enough of.

Robert Webb was brilliant in his routine but I also thought Keith Lemon (who I detest) and the bloke he partnered with, were, imo, very very good (not to mention brave with that jump) and deserved to win. I'd never heard of Roland Rivron or Weapon of Choice but after he won, I googled it and watch Christopher Walken (love him) and I think Rivron did a good job considering it was live and without special effects.

For those who enter this programme to try and make people smile - good on you and thank you, you certainly make me smile. So if you don't like it - don't watch it.

Steve Jones is a terrible presenter. He thinks he is funny but he's less entertaining than dry paint.

Shaun Keaveny is the 6music breakfast host and one of the most dry witted, entertaining presenters on the airwaves. For that reason alone I shall be watching.

It's odd. They could have at least invited one of the slightly more popular contestants back.

Plus, he'll be doing Destiny's Child. Car crash TV at its finest.

Also, I'm surprised that Dean would be doing it so soon after his crash.

Are you sure about Dean Gaffney, he was recently injured badly in a car crash. And Natalie Cassidy hasn't been in a soap for years.

If they aired this junk a month earlier Blockbuster might have lasted a few weeks longer

I know I I'll be hiring a movie.

That's one to tune in for. I'm guessing that'll have to be screened after 9pm.

It might be that he is really annoying, is now a nothing character in Corrie, had an awful chat show and is what is known as a media whore and does anything to be in the spotlight.

I might be wrong though, but just my guess.

Where are they going to fit? On the official site, they've named all 15 acts with the songs that they are going to dance to (as mentioned above).

Will Jessie dance with the Soap stars? and Paul Hollywood? Could they be judges? There is at least two judges that haven't been revealed yet.

Methinks there'll be six per heat.

It's going to be an interesting series. It's just harmless fun. I do admit it was interesting in year one as there was alot of variety in the dances and they were dances from every decade and many different dances. However now I wonder who's going to be dancing to the latest Lady Gaga song or who's the one dancing to Michael Jackson. I also wonder if they are soon going to run out of stand ups who want to dance!

Still, I do enjoy it just for pure entertainment value.

I am a bit shocked no one is dancing to Psy this year.
