    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've just been looking at FB comments. Some people have claimed they don't know anyone at all. Sheltered lives if they've never heard a single one.

    Looking forward, although a dance judge on another programme is very unfair.

    I am very excited at Jonnie Peacock being in it. I really like him and he seems a nice person with a good sense of humour (seen him on Last Leg a couple of times)

    I'm at the stage/age where I know the older ones, but not pop singers or soap people.

    Looking forward to seeing Jonnie Peacock. Good on him.

    Thanks for that, I've applied so fingers crossed. The only problem is the only photo I'd we have is expired passports so if we get tickets looks like we'll have to renew our passports.

    Has anyone else watched the preview show? I can already tell that Shirley n Ruth are going to annoy me

    Yes, I caught the preview show. Chizzy seems just like her role in Holby, bubbly. One if the blokes I don't know annoyed me. Debbie did, too.

    Looking forward to next week!
