    The BBC apparently don't like the truth, they will not post my comment for obvious reasons. I feel very strongly about Natalie Gamede being allowed to continue in this show. I am not the only one!

    Trained Dancers should not be allowed to appear on Strictly Come Dancing, only complete novices.

    Looking for a great Christmas dance tune for the show? Checkout itunes or YouTube ... Brighouse and Rastric bands SANTA, Christmas song. Get the band on the show and get the team dancing to it.

    I thought 10 was for perfection, but it seems to me that it doesn't apply to the judges'
    favourites and I think it's so unfair.

    Actually thinking about it, every one of the celeb dancers is pushing themselves why Natalie after missing last week agents to dance in Blackpool is unfair. Who after being told to to dance through exhaustion on Saturday gets the all clear on a Monday, outrageous was she just unable to complete the routine - shocking

    I don't see what all the excitement is about - Natalie was a trained dancer until the age of 17, her improvement in the last few weeks has been very little if any at all. What about the contestants who have really improved.

    Love the show, the only thing I find sad is they ask these old cebs to be on it, but they get marked the same as the young ones, usely comments about they missed a step, or the dance didn't have enough energy, then they get marked down, if they're going to judge them on their dance they should remember their age, at fifty four I love dancing, but I can't dance as good as I did at twenty four, none of us can were not as flecks able, last week I had to turn it off, the comments about the older ones dances were not nice, bless I expect they put more effort in than the young ones, if want energy, energy, then don't have the older ones, just stick to young dancers, x
