Strictly Come Dancing 2020

[ Edited ]

So it will be going ahead this year, despite Covid 19. It will start a month later than usual in October.

They have announced the first 6 contestants

 

I presume each couple will maintain their own social bubble and I think they are planning a limited audience (the info is so limited, which is why I'm late posting!!)

 

I do know that Bruno Tonioli's appearances will be limited due to his appearances in the US.

So I'll post this in case @sheepdog @WispaRed7 @jonsie @MI5 and @Mi-Amigo are still interested.

 

Actress Caroline Quentin is the first contestant announcedCaroline Quentin.jpg

 

Then we have Jason Bell, a former professional American football player living in the UK now

Third contestant is Max George from the group The Wanted (We all remember Jay McGuinness from the same group)

4th Contestant is Ranvir Singh (Good Morning Britain)

5th Contestant is Clara Amfo from BBC Radio 1

And just announced this morning is Nicola Adams the boxer, who will be dancing as part of a same sex couple

I'll update the thread when further contestants are announced.

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2020

Thank you for the mention @Cleoriff 

Although I`m not a fan of Strictly [prefer Dancing On Ice], I might actually watch this.

I like Ranvir and enjoyed the after laughs and leg-pulling she got on Good Morning Britain today, and like Caroline Quentine [from days of Men Behaving Badly and Jonathan Creek].

It's one of the "reality" shows that I do watch.

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2020

One thing we're almost guaranteed to not get this year is the inane crowd clapping. Thankyou CoronaVirus yahoo 

 

Sadly we're still lumped with Tess Daly and no plans to replace Bruno when he's off in America? Has the BBC not heard of Zoom? No idea on 4 of the current celebs and not exactly gong to be scouring the internet to find out either. 

 

Also: shorter series = less budget = Blue Peter 'double sided sticky tape and used toilet roll' costumes. Halloween should be an interesting prospect.

[ Edited ]

Actually the point you make about the costumes is valid @sheepdog 

When you think of the 1000's of hours which go into making them and dressing the contestants etc.

Add to that the hair and makeup and we have a disaster waiting to happen.

All the shows I've watched so far since 'normal TV' has been resumed, everyone has to do their own hair and makeup, as well as wearing their own clothes.

Looks as if it could all be very drab.

 

Also let's not forget the Strictly curse. All these couples staying in a Covid bubble together....that'll be very interesting yahoo
