Caroline probably the biggest ringer. She had weeks, if not months of ballroom & latin training, for the dancing on wheels show. Even competed for the UK in the World Champs with her partner. She was last iirc :D But not surprising as she was up against pros
Report Cider October 6, 2018 8:58 PM BST
Yup, though probably not a ringer in the public's eye. I've taken a different approach to this series (apart backing from Ranj!) and been trading most of the runners. I have eight positive results currently, including Faye. Plus a few bad ones!

I quite liked Lee to be fair and thought he came across as a decent chap.  I don't watch CBB and haven't a clue about his band but thought he danced well and going on pure dance ability (which I always like to) I think there were only 5 or 6 actually better than him so very harsh IMO.
Report Henry VIII October 7, 2018 11:40 AM BST
Could be, I'm going to catch up today but as he's out won't be watching his dances anyway. I never thought the audience crossover would necessarily be big enough for his CBB performance to effect this btw, just a personal delight in not having to watch him.

Someone has to win and with no obvious MEM friendly male winner, there aren't many other options.
I guess Joe is the closest to that default male winner. However I was expecting his ballroom to be better. Given it's not great they should be able to dispatch him before the final.
Vick & Lauren have been disappointing and it's hard to see either making a serious challenge.
Charles not very likeable and not as good as he thinks he is.
Danny going backwards and looks his age at times when dancing.
Ranj, Graeme & Sean look like also rans. Good fun at the faster dances, but not great overall.
Katie very likeable, but would need a miracle to improve enough to challenge

I guess you could make a case for Kate. The judges seem to love her for some reason.

Which leaves Stacey, Faye and Ashley. I could be way off but Faye beats Ashley every day of the week in the pv when it counts.

So more than happy with my 2 big greens. Stacey & Faye

"Still don't see Faye turning around the ringer status enough to win the OR"

Does Faye have a ringer status? First I've heard of it. Steps were just an average middle of the road pop group weren't they?

Unlike say ****cat Dolls who were pro dancers first and singers second.
Report five leaves left October 8, 2018 12:36 PM BST
She's a trained dancer H

Faye trained at the Anne Gale School of Dance where she achieved advanced qualifications in all aspects of dance, including Ballet, Tap and Modern. After her A-levels she then began dancing professionally with the Belinda King Dancers for two years and sang at the Hilton Hotel Park Lane London until joining the international pop phenomenon that was STEPS.

The public aren't that dumb, and it's obvious from the start that Faye was more than capable. She's a professional 'performer' too.

I can't envisage a set of circumstances that will allow Ashley to win. I feel Faye could win but would need the stars to be aligned ie be up against Ashley and another beatable runner come the final 3/4.

The market has to balance the likelihood of the ringer females of winning with the chances that they will make the final.

Joe is being firmly pigeon holed into the teenie pleasing category, even though he's 27.

Stacey has a fair bit in her favour at the mo.

There's looks to be a shortage of genuine contenders right now, but with so long left, given the last few years there will surely be some twists and turns yet.
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B October 8, 2018 5:06 PM BST
Figgy

I think your summing up of all the runners and riders is pretty good below.

Seems the obvious two better dancers both have experience so not ideal yet of all the others only perhaps Stacey ticks all the boxes as Joe very likeable but is he quite good enough dancewise?

As Cider says though early doors at the moment so still all to play for,
