It was Chinese New Year on Thursday, so this evening we sat down to celebrate the occasion in the way we know best
eating a Chinese Takeaway, having a Strictly-themed Chinese New Year Chat! For those of you suffering from FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) we thought of you, so here’s a virtual takeaway just for you🍢🍥🍣🍱🍚🍙🍘🍲🍤🍛🍡.
We began the evening by asking you, If Strictly were a Chinese Takeaway dish which dish would it be and why? You gave us some mouth-wateringly good answers which made us very hungry *reaches for Chinese Takeaway menu and mobile phone* Here are some of our favourites:
Our favourite answer of the night coming up…
This year is the Year of the Goat/Sheep and people born in that year are characterised by the following characteristics:
We asked you for the professionals who best embody these characteristics. Here were your answers:
We also had last-minute suggestions for the wonderful
Ariel from Grimsby Joanne Clifton!
We then asked you to name the celebrities who best embody these characteristics. We had some fantastic and fab-u-lous answers. Here they are in picture form:
For our next question, we asked which dance best embodies the Year of the Goat characteristics. You overwhelmingly voted the Waltz and Foxtrot. Watching this routine, we have to agree with you:
For our final question, we asked, if you were asked to choreograph a routine for Chinese New Year, what would you choreograph, who would dance it in and to which song? For us, we’d choreograph something a little like this:
We had a couple of great answers which we thought were Maavellous (it is the year of the goat after all!) Here is our favourite one:
We think the judges would give this dance a (not very) sheepish Sev-ern. Craig Revel Horwool would vote it Baa-may-zing too! Sorry for the bad sheep/goat jokes.
That ended our Chinese New Year chat. If you didn’t get the chance to take part, don’t worry, you still can, by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We’ll be back on Monday from 7.30pm for a People’s Strictly chat. We hope you can join us then.
