I think part of my problem is that Kevin's partners in the last few years have all been so similar as has the choreography, that it all starts to mould  into one and I always think I have seen the themes before.........there is invariably a sofa included somewhere.

And his hair, WHAT IS GOING ON WITH KEVIN'S HAIR?!

lol @ always a sofa there somewhere.

I love how Ed was naming the various dance steps - shows how much he's into it. And Katya's fitted into the Strictly family perfectly.

Camilla was a good fill-in for Karen. She was right about Daisy's outfit taking away from rather than enhancing her performance. It needed Strictlyfying.

Yes I really enjoyed seeing Camilla on the show last night - also agree that Ed is really enthusiastic - I just wish they'd give the bloke more chance to dance - I can't stop thinking about how much better that routine would have been last weekend without the risky lift and with a bit more foxtrot content. I suppose there's not much chance of it changing this week being Hallowe'en - I hope Katya is concentrating on getting the basics right and making sure they are perfectly in time so that he comes across in a more confident way - like he did with his Charleston and Samba.

Ask him why it's become the Zoe show? Bit fed up of all the presenter and less focus on couples,dances. Why not instead of daft vt's do a section on the history of each dance. How did the dance progress/change. Video of old scd SCD to show judges and how they scored.
Do the pro dancers dance to competition level on the show? How would the judges score their dance?

Blimey, wonder what Russell's beef with Ed is, he REALLY doesn't like him!

I'm all Halloweened out as well - could've down without Karen Clifton's trip down memory lane. Thank god I'm watching tonight's show on catch-up so I can fast-forward everything but the dances. I'm guessing we're getting Louise's' "breakthrough" this week.

Just like the Louis Smith's week, also from Charleston too... Also, apparently Harry Judd's week (also Charleston)...

I almost forgive the Bloody Jason Gilkison when he said in Blackpool he will go old-school glamour (like Fred and Ginger) for the pro dance He is. And we obey him....

I said ALMOST.

I am sure a lot of questions veered towards his dubious song choices for the couples, but the ITT team were too chicken to pick those!

It was non-stop gushing, no interesting or probing questions, we learnt nothing new! Pointless segment - and yes, a cop out.

Daisy comes across as a sweetheart, so natural and easy to like. And Claudia's growing on me - she made me laugh yesterday: "Yeah the lifts are a breeze!" and "I'm noting what mistakes the others make!" and "I'm ULTRA competitive!" - all whilst wearing an angelic smile on her face  Laughing

I'm actually getting a little bit bored of ITT- it seems to have gone away from the concept of giving us more of the extra background /inside info in favour of stupid fillers and forever toeing the party line. Obviously they're not going to hang out the dirty washing but we never see anyone held to account even hiding behind the "some people might think.." line of questioning . Jason tonight was a case in point. Why not ask him to defend the music/choreography  choices or get producers to explain why some celebs get three Latins in a row. It was all very well hearing about the group dances, and yes thank god he's going old school for Blackpool ( spot on CD...ALMOST forgiven) but  why get him on, and ask for viewers questions if they're not actually going to question him?  Waste of time him being there, we didn't need him fronting that, it was an interesting background  piece in itself, him being there brought nothing extra.

The bits I like most on ITT are Ian's WW when he might actually criticise (constructively) and the Friday panel if they get people who say what we are all thinking ( Marian Keyes). Much as I love Vicky
Gill's (sp?) insight into who's wearing what, again it's all very lovely, nobody ever says and who's idea was it to dress them in THAT?! I think somebody said before that they miss the retro  on the outfits after Saturday - Hilary was always fab- and that's what I mean, a critical eye which points out the awful as well as the glorious.
I want ITT to be giving us the chat we have in the office at work,or on our lovely forum,  both positive and negative but with the actual people who can answer the questions. Is that too much to ask?

PS agree Sid- our posts crossed -it took me so long to write my rant- Daisy is very likeable and I've been throwing Claudia a vote or two because if they break free of the stupid "youngsters" label and get some decent themes, I think they might be good and come across better, as she did yesterday

Great way of putting it alls. I mean I'm enjoying it more than last year (when I barely watched ITT towards the end) but I think that has more to do with the fact I've liked more of the people this series (Ed, Tameka, Lesley, Anastacia, Daisy, Claudia, Greg, Ore, Will, Gorka, Oti - all give good interview even with the predictable line of questioning). BUT the show has become too self-congratulatory and too 'perky' - I wish they'd chill the heck out and stop being so 'on' all the time!

If they could just give her some decent music, Claudia could really FLY (not literally - although it's an indictment of the show nowadays that you have to clarify that!)

Tonight's ITT was a delight!

Ed and Katya definitely look like they are genuinely enjoying their time together. Both of them wanted to go to Blackpool in two weeks' time. I hope they do their QS well, as apparently Katya said Ed picked up the choreography quite quickly this week. I think if Ed doesn't mess up he'll do well this week. Sad I voted for them to leave this Saturday. But we'll see...

I like the bonkers Karen teaching Zoe how to Charleston. I actually forgot how good Zoe was with this dancing malarkey. She picked up the swivel instantly!

Nice to know that Louise' boys finally found their mum to be really cool playing the comic character in her Charleston, and that her boys also liked Kevin as the joker. They are still very 'nice', and hopefully their AT would show their other side this Saturday.

Training clips: Danny's looking really good already. Daisy's frame looks exquisite already, Robert is still struggling at this moment...

I think Ed and the Judge are both light on their feet. If they keep the accuracy through the speed, then they might get through it unscathed. Lesley gave it a good go so........

I thought that Ed looked like he was coping ok with the QS - as Katya said, he is always good with his timing so that should be a big strength. I thought that Greg looked quite good and Danny - but the Judge seemed to be struggling and there appeared to be quite of lot of out of hold stuff in their routine. Laura and Gio need to avoid falling into the same trap as Claudia and AJ with the Samba - don't make it too fast and furious, particularly for Laura who I think is shaping up to be more of a ballroom girl.

It will be interesting to see how Kevin and Louise get on with the AT - always exciting when the AT makes its first appearance. I have a feeling that she'll be good at the balletic aspects of it but not sure about whether she'll quite pull off the particular sharpness needed with this dance.

I'm actually enjoying ITT more this year - I found it was too hectic last year - but as S id says, not sure if it is holding my attention because I like more of the couples this year and I think most of them interview really well. I love choreography corner but didn't think Chloe and whatisname were as good last night - really toeing the party line! Waite's Warm Up is a highlight - I think the Friday Panel guests have also been better this year. I like the Zoe's Dance Card segment too.

It seems to be the fashion this year to break hold a lot more in the ballroom routines.

I like the dance card section and usually choreography corner. The Friday night panels are variable, but the real star for me is Ian. His Halloween ballet costume was brilliant. If they try to change Waite's section I won't be bothered watching it anymore.
