Strictly Couple Weeks – Claudia and AJ – Day 7 and POLL

Yes, we’ve reached the end of our week dedicated to Team Pocket Rocket *hands out tissues for people feeling a tad emosh* 

It’s been a week filled with wonderful dances, from their brilliant Quickstep to their Charming Charleston, Their Roarsome Salsa to their Elegant Viennese Waltz, Their dramatic Argentine Tango to their Gymnastic Cha Cha Cha.

Overall, it has been a wonderful week, and earlier today we shared the final dance of the week from this pairing – their Magical American Smooth.

It was an unusual song choice but it worked! Together they created magic on the dancefloor and they were true dance wizards! 

Now, we’ve seen all the dances this week, it leaves us with one (very difficult) task! All we need you to do is watch the playlist below, then pick your top three dances from this couple by voting in the poll just below:

Now here’s the important part, the terms and conditions! Voting will remain open until 8pm tonight when we’ll reveal the winning dance along with the next couple to be in the spotlight as part of our Strictly Couple Weeks!

Get voting people!

Strictly Support Group – Strictly Couple Weeks – Katie and Anton – Day 7

So, over the past 7 days we’ve delved into the Strictly archives and shared 7 of Katie and Anton’s finest (and classiest dances!) It’s been a week with enough Quickstep, Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Tango, Jive and Salsa to make Anton leap for joy!

Today it’s the last day (#sadface) so we’re watching one of their most elegant dances ever, their American Smooth.

When this was performed at Blackpool it gave us goosebumps and had all the glamour and elegance of a Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire routine.

We shared it earlier with you on our twitter feed and hope you enjoyed it. Now we’ve reached the end of the week, it’s time to rewatch all of Katie and Anton’s dances. Once you’ve watched them, just vote in the poll below to choose your favourite. Voting will remain open until 8pm tonight and we’ll then reveal the winning dance for you all then!

Strictly Couple Weeks – Jeremy and Karen – Day 7 (with poll)

Unless you’ve been hiding under a sparkly rock somewhere, you’ll know that over the past week, we’ve been sharing some magical moments from one of my 7 year old’s all-time favourite couples, Jeremy and Karen.

Over their time on Strictly, they came, they danced and they entertained us with some really memorable routines. Ok, Jeremy wasn’t the best dancer, but what mattered was that he tried his hardest with every step he took on the Strictly floor. 

For us, their favourite routine had to be their Charleston, closely followed by the Tango and Salsa which have become 3 iconic Strictly routines.

As you’ll know, earlier today we shared their American Smooth which filled us with joy from the moment we watched it. It was one of those dances which just made us smile from the first step they took.

You’ll know, here at the Strictly Support Group, there’s nothing we love more than a good poll and that’s just what we’ve done today.

All you need to do is watch the dances below to remind you of the dances we’ve shown all week long, then vote in the poll just beneath it. Voting will remain open until 8pm tonight when we’ll close the poll, before revealing your favourite Jeremy and Karen dance and the next couple to take part in our Strictly Couple Weeks.

Strictly Couple Weeks – Team Glita – Day 7 and Poll!

Over the past 7 days, we’ve relived some of the most magical and daring Team Glita dances. Earlier today we relived their memorable American Smooth – featuring the Rampant Crab!

Now we’ve watched all seven dances, it’s time for you to vote for your favourite Team Glita dance we’ve shown over the past week.

We know it will be a very tough decision as all 7 dances were equally brilliant, daring and fab-u-lous in their own right. We loved Gleb’s choreography and Anita’s bravery trying out some of this (death-defying) choreography. In our eyes, all 7 dances deserve a Glitterball, but only one can win. 

To remind you, here are all 7 dances we’ve shared over the past 7 days:

Once you’ve watched these we’d like to you vote in this poll below to help us decide the best dance of them all. Simply vote in this poll and choose your top three. Voting will remain open until Tomorrow night at 8pm when we’ll reveal the winning dance from Team Glita!

Get voting people!

100 Sparkly Days of Strictly – Day 7

Strictly wouldn’t be Strictly without sequins, just like our pre-show preparation wouldn’t be complete without some essential Strictly Snacks.

Yes, we love our nibbles during the Strictly Live Shows and try to make them as Sparkly as possible. In the past we’ve been known to eat glittery shortbread, glittery cookies, popping candy, haribo tangfastics and many other yummy treats, but our ultimate Strictly Snack has to be this *hears screams of joy and surprise coming from her readership*

Yes, it’s a sparkly Glitterball cake! It took some time to perfect, but once it was made it looked just like this one and was truly yummy. In fact, my 6 year old has insisted on me making one every launch show as in her opinion it’s helped her favourite reach the final 3 years in a row! 

One of the great things about Strictly Snacks is that they not only help fuel us during the Strictly Live Shows, but we also can share them and exchange them virtually over Social Media. The best thing about this exchange, is the calories don’t count.

Anyway, we want to see pictures of your favourite Strictly Snacks! Tweet us @scd_support, or comment below. We promise we are willing to share and exchange Strictly Snacks especially where chocolate is involved!

Strictly 2014 – News at (half-past) Ten!

This is the Strictly Support Group News with your slightly crazy host Cassie!

The headlines tonight

*Bong* James Jordan went into the Big Brother House last night
*Bong* We now have Three female celebrities appearing on the show but no males confirmed yet (us ladies are getting impatient – take note Strictly Producers!)
*Bong* The lovely Alison Hammond will be the third of our stars to take to the Ballroom. Good Luck Alison!

*Bong* Today was another crazy fun, flexible day in the training rooms. We’re not sure if much singing was involved, as all our pros were a little quiet today. We think they must have been dancing their little socks off!

*Bong* The Wonderful Kings And Queens Dance from Britain’s Got Talent also popped into rehearsals, and it seems things got a little crazy:

And finally, we now know how our pros chill out after a long, exhausting day full of dancing. They do it by taking part in an Ice Bucket Challenge. Yesterday, the lovely Janette took part in one, nominating Karen Hauer, Iveta Lukosuite and Anya Garnis to chill out. Today Karen and Iveta shared their efforts and nominated Kevin and Hairy Dave, Barack Obama, The Pope, Mark Benton, Craig Revel Horwood, Jason Gilkison and the lovely @cfc_craig! Good Luck guys. Here’s a nice warm cup of coffee for you all to warm you up and congratulate you for doing this for amazing causes! β˜•οΈ

As a little bit of fun, we’d like to know which strictly pro or celebrity you’d nominate to do an Ice Bucket Challenge. Tweet us @scd_support or comment in the box below. We look forward to hearing from you.

That’s all from the world of Strictly for today. We’ll be back tomorrow for a quiz at 7pm and another news bulletin later on in the evening. We hope you can join us then.

*rustles her script like a pro!*
