    Strictly Come Dancing 2017 thread 9th May 17 at 4:03 PM
    As the new head judge (Shirley Ballas) has been announced today I thought it was an opportune excuse to start the 2017 SCD thread!

    I’m going to miss next week's as I’ll be in Cardiff for the rugby. My BIL might record it to watch when we get home, but I’ll try to use my phone to get some info from you lot and vote.

    Networks tend to be busy, though.

    Alexandra might have gone if Davood had been in the dance off though, as his dance was better than hers.

    Funny he should say that because according to the DM the other day, Kevin and his wife are going through a rocky patch.

    I know every Strictly partnership says that they are "friends for life," but l got the impression that with Susan and Kevin this is true

    So pleased that Gemma got through . And oh my goodness that opening dance, for one moment l really thought Oti was Beyonce!

    The dancer going out has always 'made a friend for life'.

    Perhaps I am being really unfair but I always wondered if it was a way for her to stay in this country.

    There’s a bit on Susan’s departure in the Mirror. According to them, the gossip page, she didn’t mix with the others.

    Hmmm.

    Man, I am so p@@d off. I’ve got tickets for the final, and I can’t go. All hotels nearby are booked up and from what I’ve read, I need to be there at stupid o’clock to get a seat. I even read in digital spy that you should take your own chair. What??

    Elise, don't give up! If you drive you can get a nice hotel in a nearby town and park in the council car park, going back and forth, they did a whole day ticket when we went.

    Or if you don't drive, see if you can. Get a hotel or B&B up the train line, e.g. St Albans.

    Please stay safe in the sun and learn the A-E of melanoma: A = asymmetry, B = irregular borders, C= different colours, D= diameter, larger than 6mm, E = evolving, is your mole changing? Most moles are not cancerous, any doubts, please check next time you visit your GP.

    I always use airbnb now as much prefer them to hotels
