Well, we've got here.  Hopefully some of the old reprobates will be back for the shorter stretch.

With the first live show of the Little Mix band search being postponed due to C19 cases, I can see it being a bumpy ride.

That's another good thing about this year on top of not having the silly clapping to the music of the audience - not having the extra dancers during the routines.

Oooh, MD, you touch upon an interesting reality; Craig and Shirley in particular, but the judges generally are able to ogle the men in a way that`s no longer considered acceptable when it`s a young woman being drooled over. Same in BGT with David, Alesha and Amanda openly at it. (Simon too, but he tries not to let it show!)

Yes, Tim. It happens on the Chase too! Anne often flirts like mad with the guys in a way that the male Chasers wouldn’t dream of doing.

Glad she’s gone now. I was quite enjoying watching her until last Saturday.
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B November 23, 2020 10:36 PM GMT
I thought she was distinctly average every week and particularly poor on Saturday.  I think she's really embarrassed herself by looking his arm.  She just looked like an overweight, getting on in here years luvvy.  No not good at all I think the Competition is well rid.

I'm not Bill's biggest fan but look how he holds himself, he's very polite and coming across really well yet he's not much younger than Caroline.

I agree.  I posted that I thought it was all a bit basic.  An odd flick through the legs here, a swivel there in the past we've seen some real 'wow' AT's so for me it was very average.

I'm hoping Clara does a great Jive this week.  I think she's in with a real shout but was a little disappointing last Saturday though the judges low scores were very overly harsh IMO.

Think she has it all going for her, nice girl, nice smile, just starting as a beginner so hoping she'll up her game that little bit.

Go on girl!
