I know! Last season was a hotbed of hormones, it seems. Probably.

It doesn’t look good, does it?! If it’s true I’m not in the slightest bit surprised, put it that way, and I feel sorry for the babies and wife. But remember, what goes around comes around, whatever the situation and circumstances. In that I trust.

Anonymous said: If Artem was around this season which girl(s) would you like to see him be partners with and why?

Ooh, that’s tough. I don’t know. Probably Jennifer? A supremely likable, slightly older celebrity who could at least take him to the quarter finals. Preferably he would have someone completely new and not in this year’s cast like, say, Mel or Sue from The Great British Bake-Off :) Woulda coulda shoulda.

Anonymous said: If you had to pick top five of your favorite couples in order already, what would it be?

Okay, finally getting round to answering this. I’ve thought about it and this is how the order currently stands:

1) Caroline and Pasha
2) Scott and Joanne
3) Thom and Iveta
4) Jennifer and Tristan
5) Frankie and Kevin

BUT I LOVE almost EVERYBODY REALLY.

Hello, hello! I’m glad you like the post, and rediscovered the gold leggings. They really are the gift that keeps on giving!

I have indeed seen Frankie and Kevin’s video, and they’re looking on form after just a few days practice! Based on that, I expect some lovely graceful ballroom numbers from them. And Frankie already showed in the launch show group performance that she’s not to be underestimated, imo :)

I’m the ripe old age of twentysomething, anon.

Not anymore, this tumblr’s my one and only :)

Anonymous said: who do you think is hotter, Tristan or Trent?

Ooh, gotta opt for Mr MacManus on this one. I do love an Irish accent. Also: arms.

untitled-ross said: Who is your favourite celebrity in this years strictly?

Hello! There are a quite few celebs I’m looking forward to this year, to be honest, namely Caroline, Frankie, Thom, Scott, Jennifer, Mark, Pixie, Alison, Steve and Jake… soooo, over half the cast lol.

I will say that Caroline and Thom are my fave faves at this point. My body is ready.
