100 Sparkly Days of Strictly – Day 53

It’s Day 53 of 100 Sparkly Days of Strictly. If there’s one thing we hate about Strictly the most, it’s the dreaded dance-off. It’s always hard to see couples battle to be saved during their dancefloor journey. One couple always comes out victorious and we end up shedding some glittery tears saying goodbye to the other couple.

It got us thinking, if you could see an ultimate Strictly dance-off between two brilliant performances which would it be & which would come out victorious?

For us, it’d have to be a jive-off between these two jives! They’re so good it’s impossible to separate them:

Which would win in your opinion? Vote in this poll below to tell us:

We’d also like to hear the dances you would put together for an ultimate dance-off! Tell us by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you.

100 Sparkly Days of Strictly – Day 51

We’ve passed the half-way mark in our 100 sparkly days of strictly & today we’re in need of something to relieve our hump day blues.

What shall we do, we hear you cry? Well, it’s easy! Just look at our favourite show for inspiration. There are many dances that cheer us up when we feel blue, but the one that does the job quickest is this one:

We love Pasha and think his quicksteps are something of Strictly legend. They always make us smile and make us want to jump up on the floor. His choreography is traditional yet imaginative and original. We also loved this dance because not only did it feature Pasha but it featured Pasha in a fetching pair of pink(ish) trousers and there was a lovely teddybear too! 😍 All these things added together made us have the biggest smile on our face this morning πŸ˜„

Which dance makes  you smile no matter what?

It’s almost the half-way point of our #100sparklydaysofstrictly and with our couples starting their first tentative steps in training today we’re asking you to share your favourite training moments!

This is one of our favourite moments ever. Just watch the Pasha Love section. Words cannot even explain it. It’ll make your day whatever mood you’re in:

100 Sparkly Days of Strictly – Day 47

It’s finally here!

Yes, Strictly is back. Tonight we’ll be eagerly glued to our goggle boxes (with glitterglue of course) watching the Strictly Launch show live. *cheers*

For a little fun today we’d like to hear your favourite launch show moments. This has to be ours:

We love the idea that all the pros and hosts and judges live together on Strictly Street, in fact my little girl (who was 5 at the time) demanded a trip out to Strictly Street to see what it was like and to meet her favourites.

100 Sparkly Days of Strictly – Day 46

Tomorrow night we will see the uh-may-zing, adorable and fab-u-lous cast of Strictly 2016 take to the floor for the very first time during the Launch Show. We’re so excited we can barely contain our excitement much longer *oozes glitter*


We can honestly say that this cast looks like the best line-up ever and we’re sure they’ll be wonderful, but for today we’re asking you to tell us the advice you would give to any of our celebs taking to the floor. 

Our advice would be:

1) Listen to your professional dancer. They know their stuff and are truly amazing at what they do.

2) Practice makes perfect. Keep practising. Don’t worry if you don’t get it first time round, you will if you keep trying.

3) Embrace the glitter and sequins. It’s Strictly and a once in a life-time experience. The audience will back you even if you do look like a human glitterball

4) Have fun! The couples who’ve got the furthest have been those who’ve enjoyed their experience. 

What would your advice be to the Strictly cast of 2016? Tell us by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you.

100 Sparkly Days of Strictly – Day 45

It’s Day 45 of our 100 Sparkly Days of Strictly and very soon we’ll be hearing the fab-u-lous foursome of Craig, Darcey, Len and Bruno uttering their famous sayings and critiquing our dancers.

For a little fun today, we’re asking you to tell us your favourite Strictly Judges’ dance quote! Here is ours:


We love Len’s special words of wisdom and this is one of our favourites. We know he loves to pickle his walnuts, shut the front door and call himself Mary (at weekends perhaps) and loves a bit of chicken for dinner. Our favourite has to be winner, winner, chicken dinner! We just loved it as it was a moment of Len magic.

100 Sparkly Days of Strictly – Day 44

So last night we saw many wonderful pictures from the Strictly Red Carpet launch. Pictures like this:


And this:


And this


All we can say is from the pictures it looks like this series of Strictly is going to be the Best Strictly Ever!

As we get all excited for Strictly, we want you to tell us what your hopes are for Strictly 2016!

I hope that Strictly continues to sparkle and brings us more fantastic and new dances. I’d love to see Bollywood again or another completely different style of dance on the show!

My little girl Bella told me her hopes for Strictly 2016 too I hope that Strictly 2016 is very sparkly with lots of glitter and I hope that the Cliftons all win the glitterball this year.

100 Sparkly Days of Strictly – Day 43

It’s Day 43 of 100 Sparkly Days of Strictly, and it’s also Frankenstein Day!

We love Strictly and feel it is just a huge glitterball of loveliness. Today, however we’re asking you to tell us the times that you have been scared watching strictly:


It could be during the Halloween special, or perhaps during a hard lift which our couples pulled off. Perhaps you were scared during the results show or maybe when your favourite couple got a low score from the judges.

Tell us the moments that left you feeling scared by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below and we’ll give you a big bear hug! We promise we won’t look as panda like as Dave does!

100 Sparkly Days of Strictly – Day 42

It’s Day 42 of 100 Sparkly Days of Strictly and Bank Holiday Monday. We love Bank Holidays as they give us an extra chance to recharge our batteries, and of course, relive some of our favourite Strictly moments even more.

In fact, Bank Holidays as well as helping us recharge our batteries (to the extent we turn into the Duracell bunny) help us chill out!

Today we’re asking you to share the  Strictly moments which made you most chilled out. Here are some of ours in playlist form:

Tell us which strictly dances left you feeling most relaxed by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you. We’ll add your suggestions to this playlist which will become our chill-out playlist!
