    Bruno was out of order on the results show on sunday clearly showing favouritism when the bottom 2nd couple was announced clearly heard in the background shouting your kidding you dont know what you are doing,previously asked who should be going through from the remaining couples again stating quite clearly kimberely although should not have been asked this question.What chance have the others got when they hear this quite clear bias towards another contestant despite performance levels should keep opinions till when it actually matters.

    Can you ask Karen why Craig gave such different marks for Louis' waltz on Saturday? he said waltz should have rise and fall and Bruno disagreed what is correct way a waltz should be danced please and why such a disagreement?

    Artem and Fern, I have so loved watching you dance together and I’m so sad to see you go so soon, SCD will not be the same without Atems lovely smile and Ferns enthusiasm. What are you looking forward to doing now you’re not tied to SCD / ITT rehearsals and filming schedules? Fern will you keep up the dancing? Waltzing Rose, Carmarthenshire.

    but all the couples have some chemistry between them . What do you say ???

    Are you sure Kimberley was not put into the play off to keep the drama going; there was no way she should have been there-she is one of the top 3 to pull it off;I think a judge used the word 'delicious' to describe her efforts which is about right! Come on Kimbos!

    I would echo Mauren's question as to the difference of opinion between Craig and the rest of the judging panel in regard to Louis's marks. I am sure the judges have personal likes in relation to the dances but for Craig to mark Louis 6 when the other judges gave him 9 would seem to big a difference. Particularly in view of his marking of other contestants.

    Series 5 saw you Flavia finish 2nd. With Louis do you think you have the best chance of going all the way and winning the Glitterball Trophy?

    Craig obviously has jealousy issues with Louis who performed a beautiful, graceful, impeccable waltz. Flavia would not have allowed him to do the initial turns if he were not capable. Craig's onslaught of criticism was embarrassing to watch - and thank goodness for Louis's placid nature in accepting that rubbish with such good grace.

    Hi Everyone, what a shocker, Kimberley and pasha in the bottom 2!, I had a feeling Fern and Artem would be one of the bottom 2, but never Kimberley and Pasha, but I was so pleased that Graig, Darcey, Bruno saved them, they are so good, guess that they didnt get the public votes, so pleased for all those that did get through to next weeks show, wembley next Saturday, should be a great show, good luck to everyone there, looking farward to i.t.t with Zoe this week and hearing about the new dances that the couples will perform next Saturday take care everyone, have a great week, keep warm christine

    Oh no - no more Fern and a scantily clad Artem - what will I do now on a Saturday night. Thank you for the last few weeks. Can we have Artem performing with no top on more often when it is all the pro's dancing please?

    I wish to register my wholehearted approval of the show on Saturday 10th Nov. It was fast moving and fun and stuck to its job of showcasing the competitors and not the inane comments of the regular presenter Bruce forsythe. The two enthusiastic female presenters did a great job . Long may they continue.

    It seems to me that Vicky has tremendous potential but either lacks the will / motivation / confidence to bring the best out of herself. Unlike the last two years, I think the field is very open and that with a little more effort from Vicky, she could be up there with the favourites. What does anyone else think?

    Much as we have enjoyed the career of Sir Bruce Forsyth over many years, we felt that Saturday's show was far better with Tess and Claudia in charge. Bruce's lines, interruptions and ad-libs have been, for the most part, truly embarrassing for the past two series and this year more so than ever. Isn't it time to step back gracefully?

    Please could you get Miranda Hart back on ITT - she is amazing and so funny! Even better, she should participate on Strictly next year, or even the Christmas special as a taster! Thanks :-)

    (Ps. Please ask her if she will ever get together with Gary?!)

    Can you tell me who picks the music and who decides which dance the dancers have to do.
