Most of the seat in the third tier were empty at the Liverpool Echo Arena last year, and I was worried that they wouldn't come back, but they have.

How bad is it in Newcastle?

Glad to hear that you're having a good time - I've been keeping track of your twitter updates. Thanks you.

So yes i was dissapointed the arena looked so empty but some areas of north east are snowed in.

The dancefloor prior to start was covered un a cloth with footstep prints on

Then began the countdown clock and start of first pro dance to Gold and Titanium.

Kate and judges introduced

First round of dances including lens comment to michael saying it was like watching an autopsy

Danis new partnership worked as did louis and ola. Denise got 30 and louis marked down as len didnt like flips he got a big reception though. Artem took his top off.

Pro dance before interval

Dani did a great quickstep charleston dance fusion

Lisa had little stumble in her dance

Artem made up a story about his alsation butcher eating a chiuahua and eying trying to get more votes

Micheal and phil were battling with each other to see who would get more points (micheal)

Denise charleston and louis dirty dancing fusion routine amazing.

Denise was top

Pros and celebs did a group dance

Judges briefly joined them

Final 2 announced denise and louis louis won then wveryone danced before leaving floor

Just added extra to my report

Where in north east do you live?

Your block is the next block to the left where i was what row you in

Saw plenty with cameras

Just after results announced you need to get down to floorseats if possible go down left as some of dancers come close judges too

oooo .... thanks....oh... I will be fine... I live just a 25 minute walk away from the arena and was actually planning to do so before all the snow started...... But now with the weather might just take the metro or a taxi...

I will be in D.. hope that gives me good views... will definitely be better than last year when I was up in the clouds in 204 and that at the back as well...

ooo....cant wait...

cameras - no but I managed to take photos! it really depend where you are sitting and if you have a steward near to you - I am able to take photos without a flash but the "no photography" rule is being strictly enforced and if they see you taking photos they will tell you to stop!

It depends how you interperate (sp?? doesnt look right!!) interact - couples encourage you to cheer and boo when getting their scores but if you mean do they actually make contact with the audience - no - only 1 pro did during the final dance and that was Natalie - she was dancing in front of a very small girl and gave her a hug - the girl next to the small girl got a photo but I didnt noticed anyone else interact like that apart from Natalie (I was a Birmingham)

Hope that helps

I managed to take photos and videos in birmingham as did a lot of other people, as tv queen 1905 said if you can get to the front after final result the pros and celebs come very close I got high five from Natalie, Karen, phil, and Michael, and Len, ola hugged the little girls at the frount Natalie was fab hugging and kissing anyone she got eye contact with. She was the last to leave the floor, as she has been in all the other tours she really grasped the idea of giving the fans what they want, when we pay so much to see the show live and battle the elements, this is what you want more interaction maybe a few more of the cast should take a leaf out of her book

BIB totally agree, im not sure what show you were at in Birmingham (I was at sunday matinee) but Natalie is very good at interacting with the fans and yes, she is always the last to leave the floor - more pros could do with taking a leaf out of her book!!
