Have your say

Don’t you just love autumn for the TV? Strictly Come Dancing is arriving on Saturday and I just can’t wait.

My anticipation is helped in no small part by the awesome advert which has all four judges strutting their stuff to Bowie.

To be honest, I don’t really care who takes part in the contest.

But I’m delighted that Jerry Hall is in there, which will take away some of the pain of watching Johnny Ball .

I simply like the spectacle, watching people improve, and all those sequins.

I’m not even that bothered about the judges’ comments, or the contest.

It’s a cosy show that reminds me of my gran – and not to eat too much in the run-up to Christmas.
