Strictly Support Group – A Strictly Pros Inspired Chat!

Earlier this week, we heard the Strictly Pro line up for this year. Whilst it got us excited that Strictly is coming, we also were a little sad as we sad farewell to three of the professionals, Natalie, Joanne and Oksana who will not be back this year. We have three new replacements and are pretty sure they will be fab-u-lous too!

In honour of the news, tonight we hosted a Strictly Professionals themed chat! We began our chat by asking you:

What do you think of the new professional line-up? Here were some of your wonderful answers:

We then moved our discussion on to talk about the pros who are leaving Planet Strictly for new pursuits. We first focused on the lovely Joanne from Grimsby and asked you this:

What do you think Joanne has brought to the world of Strictly and what will you remember her best for? We had some great answers. Here are our favourites:

We couldn’t agree with you more. For us, Joanne’s energy, positivity as well as her brilliant choreography and dancing will be remembered for many years to come. That and that Crabby Samba with Scott Mills!


For our next question, we focused on the lovely Natalie Lowe, who is leaving the show after 9 years! We asked you to tell us What has Natalie brought to the Strictly dancefloor in your opinion?  Here are some of your wonderful answers:


We then moved the chat on to talk about the lovely Oksana Platero who is also leaving the show. Although she was only on Strictly for 1 series, she provided us with many memorable moments and brought the best out of Judge Rinder. For us this is one of their best dances:


We asked you to tell us your favourite Oksana and Judge Rinder moment. here are your suggestions in playlist form:

For our next question, we asked you to tell us what you’d like to see happen on #Strictly2017. For us, after 4 years of missing the glitterball, we’d like it to be 5th time lucky for Kevin from Grimsby. We’d also like to see Chloe and Neil get celebrity partners. Here are your answers:

For our final question, we headed over to Instagram for a little game devised by my 7 year old, Bella! If you haven’t yet played her game, here it is just for you:

I must point out, this is all for fun! 

That ended tonight’s chat. Thank you all for taking part, we hope you enjoyed it. We’ll be back at 8pm tonight (Sunday) to reveal the next couple in the spotlight for our Strictly Couple Weeks series. We hope to see you then.
