What a happy, colourful, joyous, clean show Strictly come Dancing has been (and it's all finished 'sob'). I am thinking of joining next year but need a very strong, patient lady to push, pull, drag or kick me round the floor Any offers? I must come clean and say I couldn't dance even before I 'acquired ' Ataxia!!

Happy and safe Christmas everyone. Ted xxx

Hi Ted

I always thoroughly enjoy Strictly and this year was no different. I would gladly offer to be your partner next year but I have a feeling it would be a case of ‘the blind leading the blind’! Dancing to cheesy musicin the privacy of my own home will have to do!

Very Happy Christmas to you too.



Hi Ted and Harriet,

I used to enjoy Dancing before becoming disabled, I met my wife through dancing, we first danced to “ Lady in Red” and she was wearing a red sequinned jacket, and it’s been “our song” ever since.

Festive seasons greetings to you both. 🎅🏼⛄️❄️🌨😀

Hi. Harriet

Thanks for your offer! I really think we could have a good chance-----after all look how well Anton and Ruth did ending up in a heap on the floor---we could do that but not too sure about the earlier bit!!

Incidentally I thought the winner was the correct one and the BBC not giving the details of the others points was kinder

Cheers. Ted


You made me smile thank you all! Not sure I agree with you on winner Ted but they were all definitely worthy finalists this year even Gemma bless. Keep dancing everyone or watching at least :)


😂 My two left feet would disqualify me from the start. The final was anybody’s guess but personally I think Joe was a worthy winner. He went from being a virtual no-hoper to someone who someone who steadily accomplished a dramatic turnaround, no doubt helped by amazing choreography from his partner 👍 All finalists put in a polished performance, brilliant 👏 xB


Merry Christmas!

Until last year, after a bad fall, we used to go dancing every week for an hour private lesson - very badly. If we could anyone can!

LOVE Strictly (even better with one of favourite heroes Jonnie Peacock - thank you Iain_100). Bad dancing is so good for you x
