lol!

HL you make me laugh sometimes with the way you just blurt these things out! Are you feeling better by the way?

Congratulations to Pasha! For the pro dancers, a win is important for their cvs. One cheers and gets excited with the celebrity BUT it is the pro dancer who will really treasure the win.

Yes I agree HL - Pasha has to rank amongst one of the best choreographers on the show and having come close to the Glitterball twice before it was good to see him lift it tonight! I would like to commend Kristina however - as a choreographer and a teacher she is one of the finest - some of the others could learn a lot from these two!!!

Yes I love the way Kristina can really polish a turd (pardon the pun and no offence to Simon at all). Simon was way off the pace when he started out and it took time for him to hone his skills but under her tuition he turned into a gem from nowhere. She did a similar job (to a lesser degree) a few years ago with Michael Vaughan and similarly (like Simon) she turned him into one of the best ballroom dancers of the series.

As for Pasha yes his choreography is second to none and he doesn't come across as pushy or anything in training unlike some others. Well done to him for finally getting his hands on the glitter ball trophy.

I wanted Simon and Kristina to win as much for her sake as Simon's (which Simon also said). She has worked her socks off over the years getting the absolute best out people who started off as unlikely dancers. The only really good one she had from the off was Jason Donovan. I really felt she deserved the glitterball as I don't think anyone else has worked quite so hard for the show and for their contestants. It feels like always the bridesmaid and never the bride for her. So whilst Pasha did well, I don't think he had to work so hard with Caroline as Kristina did with Simon. And he hasn't served so much time as she has. I do feel she deserved the glitterball on this occasion because she really did wonders with Simon.

Still, in my eyes they were the winners, no matter what the general public, or indeed, the judges say. And I know best..... ;-)

I agree diamonds. Simon's 'trip' was the essence of Strictly for me. The Teflon Kid who never gave up. There's no doubt that Kristina couldn't have given one ounce more, she looked absolutely drained. I liked what L en said about the other celebs having to climb hills whilst Simon had climbed mountains.

Well. Three new Pro Dancers for the 2016 series announced.

From the BBC site:

'We're dusting off our dancing shoes to reveal our professional dancer line up for 2016 which includes three brand new dancers alongside the return of viewers’ favourites.

New to the fold are world-class Latin and Ballroom dance experts - World Champion Katya Jones, Ukrainian Champion Oksana Platero and top Spanish dance professional Gorka Marquez.

Returning to the Strictly dance floor are our male dancers, Housewives choice du Beke, Brendan Cole, Kevin Clifton, Pasha Kovalev, Aljaž Škorjanec, Giovanni Pernice; and fabulous female dancers are Karen Clifton, Natalie Lowe, Joanne Clifton, Janette Manrara and Oti Mabuse.

Strictly extends its thanks to Tristan MacManus and also to Aliona Vilani, Kristina Rihanoff, put a vest on you strumpet Jordan who announced at the end of last series that they wouldn’t be returning to the show, and finally to Gleb Savchenko who has decided that due to family commitments he will not be appearing in the next series.

Gleb said: “I thoroughly enjoyed taking part on the last series of Strictly Come Dancing and especially the way that the UK gave me such a warm welcome but due to family commitments I won't be returning to the show for the next series - I'll definitely be tuning in though.”

I'm hoping Natalie gets a good partner this season. She's such a great all rounder and so gracious with all her partners.

Not seen the dancers! I'd heard Aliona may be a group dancer only. She's bored in retirement

They've said two of the new pros won't be getting partners (Neil and Katya, according to an apparently reliable source) which begs the question why bother introducing us to them in the first place? Just let them carry on in the background, doing group pro dances, like before!

That's interesting sid. I know they both did some choreography for some of the Pro dances last year. They also seem to be in and out of the country teaching and on the competitive circuit.
