Strictly Support Group – A Ballet-Themed Chat

So, earlier this week, my little Ballerina Bella sat her Primary Ballet exam. She came out of it and told me that she had fun and didn’t fall over, and she thinks it went very well. After her ballet exam, she asked if I’d let her host a Ballet themed chat. Last night, that’s exactly what we did. Bella gave you some brilliant ballet-related questions to answer.

She began her chat by focusing on the most famous Ballerina on Strictly, Darcey! For her first question, she asked you to tell her your favourite Darcey moment. Here are some of your fab-u-lous answers:

For Bella’s next question, she asked Ballet is all about being Graceful and Elegant. Who have been the most elegant and graceful couple for you on Strictly? Here are your answers:

She then asked you to tell her The Performances which have been most graceful in your opinion. Here are your answers in a handy playlist:

For her next question, Bella asked you for the moments which have been En Pointe (awesome) in your opinion. Here are your answers in another handy playlist:

For her final question of the night, Bella asked you to tell her who you thought best summed up this quote during their journey on strictly:

Here are your answers:

That ended tonight’s chat! Thank you all who took part, we hope you enjoyed it. If you missed the chat tonight, don’t fear! You can still join in by commenting below or tweeting @scd_support. We’d also like to hear, if you could see a ballet-themed Strictly routine, which ballet would you choose and for which dance!

We’re back tonight from 8pm to reveal the next couple in the spotlight as part of our Strictly Couple Weeks. We hope to see you then.

Strictly Support Group – A Summer Time Chat!

It has been an absolutely glorious day with some beautiful weather and even if it doesn’t last more than 24 hours, we thought it a great idea tonight to host a Summer themed chat!

The sun was shining, birds were singing and we sat down earlier with a glass of something chilled and refreshing to bring you our chat.

We began by asking you this:

Which Strictly Moment reminds you most of summer? Here are your answers in playlist form:

If you can think of any other dances you’d like to see added to this list just let us know and we’ll add them just for you.

For our next question we asked you who’s had the sunniest disposition for you during their time on Strictly? We had some excellent suggestions. Here are our favourites:

For our next question we asked There’s nothing more refreshing on a hot summer’s day than a cool drink or an ice-cream. Which #Strictly moment was most refreshing for you? Here are your answers in a playlist form:

We love to be beside the seaside in Summer, so for our next question, we asked you to tell us the routine that first comes to mind when you hear the word Blackpool Strictly. We have made you a little collage with all your answers:


For our final question, we asked you to tell us this:

If you were jetting off on holiday to somewhere exotic, whose Strictly costume would you like to take with you to ensure you sparkled and shone like a glitterball? Here are your wonderful answers:

The Strictly Support Group General Election – Polls are Now Open! ย 

It’s Election Day here in the UK and that fills us with joy for 2 reasons:

1) It gives us a chance to vote (as Strictly fans you know we love to vote, especially when we have Bill Payer’s permission – Hi there Bill)

2) It gives us a chance to launch our Strictly Support Group General Election.

Yes, last General Election we hosted a General Election giving you the chance to vote for some of your favourite dances and declare which couple and dance you would see as Prime Minister/Leader of the Opposition. This year it’s no exception and it’s back by popular demand. We even have two wonderful polls for you to vote in.

The first is to declare the couple you would like to see win our Election. You can pick from any three in the poll options listed below:


The second is to declare the dance you think would be most likely to win a General Election. All you need to do is watch the dances below and then choose your top three and vote in the poll just beneath the playlist:

Voting will remain open until 10pm tonight. We’ll reveal the winning results tomorrow morning. 

Get voting folks (but don’t forget to ask Bill Payer’s permission first, we all know how angry he can get!)

Strictly Support Group – Sparkly Suggestions for Shirley

Last week, we had our first bit of Strictly news, as the wonderful people at the BBC unveiled the lady who will be head judge this year, Shirley Ballas.

We cannot wait to see her on the show and with her latin dance expertise she’ll definitely know her stuff. We’re sure she’ll also give the couples some brilliant constructive criticism. 


We know she’ll be amazing but we asked you to share some of your sparkly suggestions for Shirley ahead of her new role. Here are some of your wonderful answers:

We do agree that she should carry a spare 10 paddle at all times. If she doesn’t use it, we’re pretty sure it’ll come in handy for (gently) hitting Craig on the head when he scores couples lower than they deserve. 

For us we think that she should carry a harness with her at all times, to keep Bruno in his seat! We do worry about him when he falls off his chair. When we mentioned this, we had one wonderful suggestion from another of our fab-u-lous followers:

Of course, if she does wear a crash helmet it’ll have to be covered in glitter and sequins, we are on Planet Strictly after all!

My 7 year old’s advice to her is be yourself or a unicorn! Do they even have those on Planet Strictly? *looks confused*

What are your Sparkly Suggestions For Shirley? Comment below to let us know or tweet @scd_support. We look forward to hearing from you!

Strictly Support Group – A #DoctorWho and Space Themed Chat ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ›ฐ

We’re not sure if the same applies in your house, but in our house, one young Strictly fan has found a programme to help fill the Strictly void. Yes, Bella has started watching Doctor Who. Although she may find some of the monsters scary, she kindly asked mummy to host a Doctor Who and Space Themed chat, which took place earlier tonight! 

We began with the Doctor Who section of our chat. For our first question tonight we asked:

If you could travel back in time to any Strictly series, which series would you choose to relive and why?

We love every series and would have to pick every series! Here are some of your wonderful suggestions:

For our second question, we asked this: The Doctor travels across time and space in his TARDIS. Who for you on Strictly “travelled furthest” during their journey on the show? 

We had some wonderful suggestions. Here are our favourites:

https://twitter.com/f00dieface/status/860928180370255872

For our next question, we asked you to tell us Which Doctor Who character/actor would you like to see on the Strictly dance floor? We had two very popular choices from you! We’d love to see both these people on Strictly! Would you?

We then moved our chat on to be space-themed! For our next question, we asked you to tell us the Strictly moment which was out of this world for you! Here are your suggestions in playlist form:

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbpw-gqR2K3Y2-pnG0NSHztybPVAiI_rb

For our next question, we shared one of our favourite quotes and asked you to tell us who on Strictly summed this up for you perfectly. Here is said quote and your suggestions:

For our final question, we asked you to tell us If you went to Planet Strictly, what would you bring back as a souvenir? We had some great answers. Here are our favourites:

https://twitter.com/rubyeyelashes/status/860944939378724864

And that ended tonight’s chat! Thank you all who took part! If you didn’t get a chance to take part, don’t fear! You can still join in by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

We’re back tomorrow night from 8pm to reveal the next couple who’ll be in the spotlight as part of our Strictly Couple Weeks.

Strictly Support Group – Who is the First Lady of Strictly?

It was International Women’s Day yesterday, and whilst I was munching on my lunch (a sandwich with added glitter) I had a thought. There have been many inspiring, strong and simply amazing women who have graced the Strictly dancefloor. Our Strictly pro girls, regularly amaze us not just with their ability, but also with their strength which is something many young dancers (including my little girl) admire.

Yesterday’s dance quote of the day was this:


It got us thinking, who has been the most inspiring and strong lady – the “First Lady” of Strictly – for you. When we asked you earlier we had some wonderful suggestions. Here they are as a beautiful collage:


In true Strictly Support Group style, we know the only way to decide once and for all is to do a poll. Simply vote in this poll below, before 8pm today. We’ll then reveal the results just before our quiz tonight.

Get voting people:
