Welcome to tonight’s news. The headlines:
*Bong* The weather’s about to turn glittery as one of our favourite weather presenters takes to the Strictly Floor
*Bong* Our pros spend the day working with hats and looking fab-u-lous
*Bong* We hear about Aljaz and Janette’s Proposal
*Bong* And one of our pros has a novel way of dealing with the paps!
But first to our main story. Earlier this morning, we were treated to a performance on BBC Breakfast announcing Carol Kirkwood as the sixth celebrity to appear on BBC breakfast. We’re looking forward to seeing glitterballs and sequin showers across the country. They sound uh-may-zing:
It was lovely to see Bill dancing again, and we can hardly believe it’s been 10 years (😱) since he appeared on Strictly. We forecast many great performances full of sunshine on Strictly 2015 for you Carol. We’d love to hear who you’d like to see Carol paired with and what you think her Disney Codename was. Tweet @scd_support or leave your comments at the bottom of this article to let us know.
Next, today our professional dancers spent the day working with Hats! We take our hats off to them as we know how hard it is dancing with a prop. Here are some of the fab-u-lous pictures from rehearsals:
We also saw two of our pros getting close together. Awww:
And we saw Anton wearing something other than Trousers 😱 (no, it’s not a kilt!)
For those of you who read OK magazine, you’ve probably already read this and cried (as we did) but if you don’t, you’re going to need some tissues, as we heard how Aljaz proposed to Janette today. It sounds absolutely perfect and romantic and just as a proposal should be!
And finally, the paparazzi have been snapping away at our pros leaving and arriving at rehearsals everyday and getting some lovely shots:
At the end of the day, one of our pros came up with a novel way of responding to the paps, and we have to agree, we think it’s the best response ever!
Go for it Jo from Grimsby!
That ends tonight’s bulletin. We’re back tomorrow night (or probably tonight by the time I’ve published this post) with our next bulletin. Join us then!
