S3E4 – A Stumble Away From Perfection

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.

Also featuring:

  • 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.

KDP S3E2 – Strictly No Faffing

No mess, no fuss, just fifteen dances and a whole new fresh series of Strictly stretching out ahead of us. It’s all downhill to Christmas from here. Polish the mirrorball and get your spray tan on. It’s time.

In this episode:
– We’re angry with Anton, but not all that surprised
– Graeme Swann’s surprising pants
– Someone needs to explain The Internet to the grownups
– Who’s got the biggest voting demographic? And how can they be stopped?

Series 3 Warm Up: When Ellie Met Oti

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

It’s the shortest show of the Strictly year and we’re off to the musicals, darling. We’re also very cross about the animosity towards two of our leading ladies in various dark corners of the internet, so buckle in.

  • Mollie King’s playlist for her crush 
  • The difference between a sticky wicket and a shoogly peg
  • For some reason we bring up the mild childhood trauma that is Philip Schofield as Joseph
  • Christine in Phantom never getting her gusset out
  • We imagine the horror of a 50 Shades Musical
  • The weirdest training VT ever
