Wonder if they look so good on every kind of dancefloor...

CHERYL GIBBS: An embarrassing moment at a celebrity shindig with Sinitta

Have your say

My shoulders are giving me jip this morning. Well the return of Strictly Come Dancing always warrants a shimmy or two in my house.

But as much as I love the satin shirts and sequins, I’d pay cold hard cash to see what some of these dancers get up to when the cameras stop rolling.

There’s no way they could get away with their elaborate routines on ‘normal’ night club dancefloors.

We’ve all got our little signature moves haven’t we? My hubby, for example, is rather partial to swinging passers-by around by their arms.

I like to imagine that Strictly’s Brendan Cole copies the time-honoured tradition of being a man on the dancefloor – knee sliding his way from one side to the other.
