    Nothing to do with age and gender and let's face it.. Suzanna Reid is the smartest on there, hence she will have rhythm and planning skills as well as analytic diagnostics and she is gorgeous! Can't wait to see her kick ass and win with her cheeky grin ( no I am not gay, I just buzz off the faces she pulls, because she is intelligent and witty and very funny!
    It just means missing her grilling everyone on a Sunday morning on the BEEB for a bit! Can't wait to see her in action!

    Shame that Natalie won't be performing this year, hope she's not too badly hurt and can be on ITT giving commentary or guidance, perhaps with Ian doing the weekly review.

    Can't wait for the show to begin. I know its only the meeting the parteners tomorrow night but I am still looking forward to it I do hope Anton doesn't get Vanessa or Deborah though. He really hasn't had anyone decent for ages. Trying to think who the last one was.

    Of course! How could I forget!? One of the most memorable celebrities the show has ever had for me. So theirs good history with the BBC News department too. Not just sport.

    And don't forget that Natasha Kaplinsky was a BBC Breakfast presenter when she won series 1 with Brendan!

    Bill Turnbull I think surprised many I think and managed to go all the way to Week 7. Of course Chris Hollins WON Series 7 by playing a very canny game I thought. The BBC Breakfast presenters have a decent record I think. Brendan Cole or James Jordan for me.

    But as I said before somewhere it will be interesting to see how her partnership with Robin Windsor develops having only had a brief spell.

    Regarding the point made by Carl, It is not inconceivable for a male to win. Ben Cohen follows in the footsteps of a type of sports personality (rugby player) who has had decent success. We have yet to see a Rugby player finish lower than 5th. And a dark horse could be Casualty actor Patrick Robinson. In terms of his potential I think he has bags of it.

    But all the money has to be on one of the ladies like Rachel Riley or Sussana Reid. Don't discount Fiona Fullerton.

    True , stephalex but I think the BBC Breakfast Presenters did better than the ITV Breakfast Presenters. Remember Stephalex that Susanne won in the children in need Strictly

    Hope Susanna doesn't follow the usually pattern of Breakfast presenters.... apart from Chris Hollins.

    I'm not surprise at Susanna Reid. Hope she will get paired off with Brendan/ james / Robin or Pasha. She could go far in Strictly
