It’s an absolutely normal week for our favourite reality dance show! Do not think about The Event!
In this weekend’s episode:
- The first rumba of the series leads us to ask ‘What’s the worst possible song for a rumba?’
- A potpourri of laundrette anecdotes in lieu of a review of Charles’ disco salsa
- We’re replacing 10 More Minutes of Bum Chat with 20 Minutes of Hubris
- Real talk advice on what not to wear on the moon
- How do you achieve narrative? What is the actual definition of ‘going the full pineapple’?
- Plus another smashing Frock of the Week!

PLEASE NOTE: This episode was recorded on Sunday evening just after the Results Show, and completed just after Rebecca Humphries released her statement on Monday evening. We haven’t addressed anything in this episode, because the only information available at time of recording was either gossip or in a paper we’re boycotting.
We’ve upgraded our recording setup, and now suddenly you can hear everything. Including Elliot’s office chair. Sorry about that.
In this week’s episode, we look at the magical whirl of confusing scoring, prop abuse and overtheming that constitutes Strictly’s Hottest Mess of a Theme Week.
- The single most damning review of a dance in the history of Keep Dancing Pod
- We sort the pro dancers into Hogwarts houses
- DISCO XENA?
- A new winner of Frock of the Week!
We also shout out our local cinemas: Emily’s Parkway Cinema in Barnsley, Meg’s Connaught in Worthing and Ellie’s GFT and Grosvenor in Glasgow.

Ellie talks to new media storytelling expert Ewan Spence about how to construct a storyline, why planning a series of Strictly is like making an hour of the Radio 2 Breakfast Show and why we’re all in danger of a catastrophic narrative collapse. Plus, we’d love to hear your questions about the over-arching meta narrative of Strictly, whatever that turns out to be.
The combination of a weird atmosphere on the show, a few puzzling dances and a dawning realisation that Joe is probably unstoppable made Week 2 a bit… odd. Are we seeing the first signs of a seismic shift in Strictly voting patterns? For the first time ever, the Antonettes desert their hero at the first hurdle. What does it all mean?
In this episode:
– Is maroon a legit colour for a latin frock?
– Kate Silverton has always been sexy: discuss
– Which of the female pros would we like to go out on the wine with?
– Why Seann is probably the most psychologically prepared Strictly celeb this year.
– And as always why not Neil?
We’re back on Planet Glitterball for another series of Strictly! Ellie, Emily, Elliot, Anne and Lisa cast their eyes over the class of 2018. Who do we think will struggle? Who’ll be on an improvement arc? Who do we think probably meant to go on Celebrity Masterchef?
Hello! It’s the middle of the summer but the dancing never stops. Ellie went to give Oti’s new dance class Shake It a try. We gave everything a good shake for 2 glorious hours, then sat down for a bit of a chat about the joy of teaching, the Strictly year and the importance of a good bra.
Oti’s classes are on Eventbrite
