Move over The X Factor, the 10th series of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing (SCD) has returned with even more glam and glitz.
Last Saturday I was in visual bedazzlement at all the shimmering sequins and sexy stars.
As SCD’s head judge Len Goodman observed: ‘I even recognise who the celebrities are.’
In past shows viewers have been hard-pushed to identify just who the Z-list faces were.
But this year we’re being treated to personalities including Jerry Hall, Fern Britton, Johnny Ball and more.
Plus the simply scrumptious Lisa Riley (who is appearing as the Wicked Witch in Snow White at our own Kings Theatre).
According to recent reports, The X Factor ratings are at an all-time low.
With SCD back, it’s only going to get worse Mr Cowell.
