I'm not so worried about celebrities- I want some new pro's!

I'd axe Kristina, James and Ola, and keep Aliona on hiatus.

They would be replaced with-

Shem Jacobs- 6'1 Polish dancer who appeared with the ill-fated Dance Troupe in 2010. We need a taller male, and with his background in competitive dance (and DWTS Poland), I think he'd bring some interesting choreography to the show.

Anya Garnis- Pasha's pro partner, and one of the strongest latin dancers I've ever seen. Would be a fantastic addition to the show- I really think one way in which we could copy from DWTS is shipping in more ex-Soviet dancers.

Inna Berlizyeva- Recently retired from dance competitions, Inna is still only 30, and is one of the best ballroom females to come out of Ukraine. Ideal replacement for Kristina (whose choreography has been looking a little stilted recently)

Iveta Lukosiute- Was an absolute revelation this year- I want her back full time in place of Aliona.

That would leave us with a pro-lineup of-

Anton Du Beke & Erin Boag (These are part of the furniture, sadly. Neither will get a contender ever again)
Artem Chigvintsev & Iveta Lukosiute (With the right partners, these could be the last two standing)
Brendan Cole & Natalie Lowe (Two of the best ballroom choreographers- there's no way we can lose them)
Pasha Kovalev & Anya Garnis (Absolute dynamite on SYTCYD- Anya would be a fantasting addition to the line-up)
Robin Windsor & Inna Berlizyeva (I did think of axing Robin, but he is great with a certain type of contestant. Inna is my personal favourite new addition)
Shem Jacobs & Karen Hauer (Would be a great looking pair- I decided to keep Karen to see how she'd fare with a more naturally gifted celeb)
Vincent Simone & Flavia Cacace (The show would be a much poorer place without them)
I don't know the people you've mentioned. Russia does produce wonderful dancers. I'd get rid of Robin (I did like him initially) and Karen. I'd keep Christina and Aliona. I'm happy for Anton to stay, no feelings either way about Erin. Perhaps it's time for James to go.

Rosemary Schrager with James - she would put the wind up him
That'd be amazing

She is possibly the one female celeb who would tell James what to do - and shut him up

Oooooh and the fun with the banter with Craig

I'm quite surprised we've not seen Martine McCutcheon on SCD yet....

I'd love to see Jeremy Irons, Charles Dance and Nigel Havers: quintessential English gentlemen
I'd vote for that lineup

Apparently she get's asked but as she is known for dancing, she doesn't want to take part and lose.

I'm fully expecting Cilla Black next year, along with Paul Hollywood, Fabrice Muamba and an EastEnder.

I'm fully expecting Martine McCutcheon next year, actually along with Paul Hollywood, Fabrice Muamba and another EastEnder.

Other names I think we'll see are Jon Culshaw (he's there every single week), Larry Lamb (ditto), Susanna Reid or Sian Williams (both have said they want to experience some of the "Strictly magic" soon), Dionne Bromfield (if she doesn't sign up for DOI first), Rebecca Adlington (no charity events next year!), one of Il Divo or JLS, Sarah Hadland (the only Miranda star who feasibly has time), Ronnie O'Sullivan, Frankie Dettorri or Ricky Hatton (whichever finally calls it a day first!) and Danielle Lineker (because she'll be going cheap)

Oh, and Anneka Rice because she appears to be genuinely obsessed with the show!

Three more names...

Matt Johnson is starting to see a career surge, with stints on This Morning, Lotto, Take Me Out and now the news he'll be hosting a new entertainment show. Think he could be like Gethin and use the show for some more exposure.

Sarah Ferguson would be a TOTAL wildcard but she's definitely in the show's reach. She's said she'd love to do the show to make her daughters proud, and I think she'd be great to get the show maximum media exposure.

Omid Djallili- Iranian-British comedian who was surprisingly fleet footed on Let's Dance for Comic Relief. He's another fan of the show and I think he'd be great for Flavia!

I was at a Doctor Who convention this weekend and Eve Myles said she'd been asked to take part this year. Not sure if the crowd managed to change her mind or not...

Kim did US DWTS and was pretty awful!
Your male line-up includes a few hotties which is always welcome

Maybe, but JB seems most likely to me. One of them judges Got to Dance I think, perhaps he will carry on with that. One's got a baby on the way hasn't he? Well his missus at any rate

Other than the GTD judge, I can see any of the others being courted by the BBC to do Strictly. Just because JB did the Christmas special does not preclude any of the others - in fact they might try to get two - to have a interband battle.

Of course. I just think it worked with Harry Judd so they might try it again.

Actually just read the press stories and it says they are splitting but only after a farewell tour and greatest hits album... so think that probably means the tour planning/dates clashing with the Strictly period.

Maybe, guess it's about the timescale etc. Unless all this was planned well ahead, venues might be booked up now for year end, etc., they need rehearsal time etc. Who knows? Not us

It's not beyond the realms of possibility that one of JLS could do it alongside the farewell tour (Kimbo managed to juggle her dancing commitments with her solo album and Girls Aloud reunion)

I had a dream/premonition about Martine McCutheon being in the next series.

Mel C would love to do it. I think she could be a big possibility
