Yes! We’re back for a 5th series. We… forgot about the website last year but here it is again I guess.
It’s the Keep Dancing Podcast preview of the 2020 series of Strictly Come Dancing. Ellie is joined by the full pod roster of Ann, Elliot, Milly, Meg and Vikki and we have a lot of questions, including:
– How does perfect pitch help you find the groove?
– Has Max been to America?
– Who is now as relevant as a tamagotchi?
– Who should dance with our fave, Nicola Adams?
– How have Strictlies around the world been dealing with the ‘rona?
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.
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?
