    Could we please have the cameras showing the contestants feet at all times. It's annoying to listen to the judges comments about footwork that we don't see because of too many close ups.

    Am in awe of Dave Arch, the musicians and singers - they make Strictly FAB-U-LOUS!

    The musicians are fantastic but they are nothing without the Sound Supervisors Tony Revell and Andy Tapley and their so often forgotten hard working sound crew. Huge thanks to them for making the whole show a hi-fi living room experience from every vocal utterance to that great full bass of the rhythm section. Well done!

    We waited years for such an insight and only two questions were half decent. Let's have some quality time spent with these people and how they get the show ready each week.

    Very interested hearing them say that 'Queen' songs are always difficult for their relatively small orchestra of (15) and 3/4 singers to perform, because there are so many different harmonies required and the most difficult of all Queen songs? that would be 'Bohemian Rhapsody' which is what Dani and Vincent have just said on 'It Takes Two' is what they have chosen to dance to for their Show Dance! Remembering Dave said they get just 30 mins rehearsal time - I'd say that the BBC are definitely getting very good value for money from Dave Arch and his wonderful wonderful orchestra!!!!

    wonderful to see the musicians and singers interviewed at last - really marvellous - good grief they should have grammies never mind glitterballs for their achievements with max 30 min rehearal time - I also think think they should have a regular spot on ITT - lets face it they can't dance (well maybe Dan/cent can) without music however great the costumes and makeup are......

    What an amazing lot of musicians. Strictly owes a large chunk of its success to Dave Arch and his orchestra. Whoever does all the arranging (Dave?) deserves a glitter ball trophy all of their own. I second calls for a regular slot on It Takes Two.
