    Yep. Autumn season, loads of good stuff starting. Mostly thrillers, mind you! At least there's no murder on the dance floor.

    Yay caught up, quite liking the pairings, and pretty much knew everyone apart from the female DJ as I don't listen to Capital and especially not that time of the morning

    There's a one off programme on tonight, Strictly the Best, featuring former competitors like Robbie Savage.

    Should be good. 7.15.

    Anyone joining me? I didn't see the early ones. Got hooked by Mark Ramparkash in his sequinned shirt.

    Edit: really good programme. Finally seen some the bits I missed while in America and following posts on son's laptop

    Enjoyed last night's one off programme, everyone seems to have loved their time on Strictly

    Russell Grant came into where I work a couple of weeks ago and was just as lovely as he seems.

    Looking forward to when it starts.

    I was busy but had it on in the background.
    I've watched Strictly right from the start so didn't learn anything new, but it filled Saturday evening schedule acceptably.

    I have only ever missed one episode - the final when Abbie Clancy and Alijaz won - I was on a flight to the USA, but found out online who had won after landing.

    I'M HERE!!! Jacket potato in the oven - will have with prawns, cottage cheese and salad.

    Who was the opera guy in the background? What was that all about?

    Love the blue dresses.

    Just noticed that Bruno bears a slight resemblance to Manly Barilow!
