Tomorrow, lots of very brave people will tackle the 26.2 mile course as they run The London Marathon! As a Marathon runner myself, I wish all those running the race lots of luck. Strictly Come Dancing is a little bit like a marathon; it requires lots of training, stamina and practise. It is also a long journey from start to finish. As Strictly is so much like a marathon, tonight we hosted a marathon-themed chat!
We then began our chat by asking this question:
A marathon is 26.2 miles long! Like Strictly, it tests even the strongest of runners. Whose time on Strictly has been as much of a struggle as a marathon and why? We had some brilliant suggestions like these:

If you have travelled further than these two sparkly jet setters, let us know! We’d love to hear from you.
Our final question was this Of all the people on Strictly who do you think would beat the competition in a marathon and why? Here were your suggestions:
And with that question we reached the finish line and the end of our Marathon themed chat. Thank you all for taking part. If you were pipped to the post and missed tonight’s chat, don’t fear! You can still join in by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck to all those running in the London Marathon! We’re back on Tuesday from 8pm for our weekly quiz. We hope to see you then.
