It's Monday morning and we're back after a weekend of drama and tension that would rival any Oscar winning Hollywood blockbuster. Watch Strictly in 60 seconds to catch up on what we're talking about

This week we'll have all 12 couples on the It Takes Two sofa at some point so if you have any questions or comments about rehearsals, their performances or even as random as finding out their favourite ice cream flavour, then leave it below it might be included in the show. 

 

Karen and Ian will obviously be in the studio for their look at the couples choreography and routines. If you have any burning questions for this dancing powerhouse duo then get involved!

 

We'll also have the return of our Friday Panel and as soon as I can release the names, I'll make sure you're the first to know! If you have any questions or comments for them then leave them below and we might include those in the show as well.

 

As ever, don't forget to leave your name and location.

    Comment number 1.

    I feel sorry for Anton. He's a great dancer but hasn't had a decent/young partner since Patsy in season three. Why do they keep giving him the old/'comedy' partners (Ann Widdicome, Nancy Dell'Olio, Esther Ransome to name and shame the worst of a pretty bad lot). He's such a lovely man and is so gracious with all of his partners and obviously makes them feel a million dollars, but he's a competitive dancer so surely he'd want a good partner occasionally? I agree with others that he'd be a great host, but believe he still has more to give as a dancer too.

    The final dance on Saturday (from Dirty Dancing ) was a Mambo - not a Salsa!
    and very good it was too! By the way Len you dont find much Salsa in Jamaca- it comes from the Latino ( of Spanish origin) countries! Try Cuba !

    The orchestra do a brilliant job week in, week out, and without them the show couldn't happen. But how do they prepare for the shows each week? When do they know which songs they need to prepare for? How do they rehearse? How much rehearsal do they do and where? How do they manage to sound so much like the original songs? Etc, etc. To my knowledge I can't ever remember seeing this on It Takes Two. Maybe you could cover a typical week in the life of the orchestra?

    I would love to see this on the show at some stage please, please, please...

    I'd just like to make sure Victoria knows she's amazing and loads of people support Team KiwiGB! I can't wait for them to dance every single week, she just needs to really believe in herself! GO QUEEN VIC!

    Loved the show on Saturday--but the judges marks just didn't add up---why have a theme if dancers are going to be penalised for being creative---Craig showed that he at least appreciates a bit of creativity.

    This show was the worst yet! I turned the sound off for each dance, why? Due to the monotonous
    slow clap along from the audience, drowning out the very good musicians. They even joined in
    with clap along to D, Warwick! This show is degenerating into amateur night at a local pub due
    to this studio audience participation, do the engineers place microphones on their chairs I
    wonder? When they give the clap along a rest they are shouting down the judges, I say get
    some bouncers in & throw noisy spectators out so viewers can concentrate on the talent
    instead of their din!

    I am so upset that my favourite Strictly moment EVER has been spoiled: Mark and Karen's movingly brilliant Argentine Tango, danced to "Goldeneye" is amazing (I'm probably responsible for the thousands of YouTube hits for it!). Much as I love Kristina and Colin, couldn't they have been given a different track?

    When is Anton going to be given a partner who will have some chance of helping him win the contest? I enjoy his fun and games,but, please give him a real dancing partner next year.

    I love this years line up and the dancing is fantastic but why oh why do the people watching have to constantly clap throughout most performances. Surely the dancers have problems hearing the music.

    Please cut your fringe Zoe. Gave up watching because Claudia always peeped through her fringe. It really irritates me, why do presenters do this? Come on ladies smarten up.

    Re Gary's comments about the orchestra are valid - many of us have been asking for ages to hear more about the orchestra - there are so many Strictly Fans who are very interested to hear all the details about the music on the show. I'm wondering if it's maybe a royalties issue that they wouldn't be able to cover the details of orchestra vocals etc., without getting into a whole lot of royalty issues - could someone from the strictly team comment on this and then at least we will stop asking you each series! thankyou.

    Its clear Brucie is getting too old to carry on much longer. However giving the job to Anton would be the kiss of death to the show-I personally dont know anybody who likes him or even thinks he would do a good job - he is so gauche and extremely unfunny. Surely there are some far better cnadidates out ther- if not - call time on the show beofre we have to watch so called celebs who nobody has ever heard of.

    How can Len have the casting vote when there are only four judges. Last nights voting resultwas2 to 1. No casting vote required. Had Len voted for Jerry, would she have won after votes at 2 all? If not, then Len might as well be the only judge as his vote would win despite other votes.

    My comments regarding judges votingafter dance offs is simple. If there were five judges and the vote was two all, then a casting vote would be required, but not at 2 to 1.
