So Strictly come Dancing is back this autumn with a new old judge (Anton du Beke), a new old presenter for It takes Two (Jenette Manrara), four new pro's who won't be involved and obviously even less money than ever before!

 

First three of the bottom of the barrel scrapings are:

 

Tom Fletcher - ex boyband member now writing children's books

Robert Webb - slightly creepy comedian looking for work

AJ Odudu - obligatory "Who's that, never heard of her"

 

Also there are 15 people defined as celebs this year. I'm half expecting Kathryn Ryan to be involved as she seems to be on every other program for no reason. Also no Blackpool week either. 

 

Sadly, looks like were stuck with the un-dynamic duo of Daly & Winkleman.

@sheepdog 

Just going to post this. I like Tom Fletcher

Never heard of AJ Odudu

And Robert Webb should have done it last year but had heart surgery. He rose to 'fame'with David Mitchell (who is funny)

Pleased that Anton is replacing useless Bruno!

Thank's for reminding me to not watch the BBC for the duration of this terrible program.

Robert Webb was brilliant in the Peep Show though.

@sheepdog Kathryn Ryan seems to be famous for being Kathryn Ryan, I'm not sure what she actually does.

And today's scraping of the mixing bowl is John Whaite, winner of series 3 of Great British Bake Off back in 2012. Of which I saw nothing of and apparently a regular on Steph's Packed Lunch on Channel 4. Of which nobody watches. Anyway, he'll be paired with a male pro.

BBC's chosen contractual obligant from Kids TV goes to CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson. CBBC is on Freeview channel 201 which is also available in HD for some reason. Just thought you'd like to know that 😀

"Best known as the face of CBBC". Nope, never seen or heard of him. 😃

Drawing out the saga (and yes you'll get the pun soon enough) of prolonging the celebs taking part this year one by one, today's release is Sara Davies with an MBE. Yes, you are correct in saying "Who?" like a demented owl but oddly, I know her from her company Crafters Companion and the odd appearance on crafting television channels rather than her appearance on Dragons X-Factor. 

 

However, I am a demented owl 🦉

Good job you posted a link @sheepdog as my mind was blank. I've seen her on Dragons Den.

Good grief I'm so excited with all these 'celebs' rage
