    Good on Mrs MSE !!!!!!!

    Disappointed now though that you've ruined the big reveal. Shame on you Martin.

    Even if she does get through, they'll have a hard job beating Rufus IMO

    Thanks for supporting Mrs MSE tomorrow - she's quite nervous about it all and has been training all week. Apparently she also has to be flung about by some male dancers. Im looking forward to it though - should be fun.

    all other support welcome too!
    I can't imagine that this is the most Money Saving / efficient way to give to charity, is it?

    Quite right, its not, far better to donate via gift aid - but it is the most effective way to vote for Mrs MSE and have some fun in the process while supporting charity (of which much more goes to charity than is standard in TV votes).

    Martin - I'm sure you adore and love your wife to bits, but there may be a few MSE'ers and readers of MSE who haven't the foggiest idea who she is. If you don't give her a name check they won't be able to vote for her. Which would be a pity.

    You need to vote for the Weather Girls as posted in Martin's blog.

    Lara Lewington is MrsMSE

    Best of luck to you both tonight I'm off to Glasgow for the day and may not be home in time to catch it live but have it set to record. Its so much fun to watch I'm guessing being at the recording will be a great experience.

    What a great performance by Mrs MSE. Was that Lara's sister sat in the family audience area? If not, she looks very alike.

    I liked the boxers routine.

    Well done to everyone who danced tonight, it took guts and determination.

    Thanks for that she did really well - was a fun night.

    And not sure who the girl you mention is - but Mrs MSE is an only child.
