    Following on from my comment 484;
    Robin was lucky in his partner this year,as he got the furthest he has ever done in the competition,so all credit to Lisa for that; it was just that they were up against even stronger competitors at the end.
    As for Jerry,let it just be said that her talents lay in areas other than dancing and leave it at that.
    Happy New Year everyone!!

    Xmas Special showed the finalists in their pre show dance costumes so was probably shot while we were voting.... making for several hours of non stop shooting so Bruce must have been tired by the end of the live final when he was doing his "back off" "back off" nonsense. He does need to quit before another such dis-as-ter.

    No-one sane would seriously suggest Barrymore, Kay, Brand or Ross. They're awful. In fact in the case of the first I think he's actually certifiable.

    Personally I'm not keen on Walliams either but there are plenty of others out there who can keep it light and entertaining, read an autocue and, as an added bonus, not be rude or irritating.

    Pretty sure Flavia's jump was unscripted, unless each of the remaining couples had practised what they would do if they won! Bruce didn't strike me as excited, he seemed annoyed and stressed. I think, like many elderly people, he is getting to the point where small changes in routine unsettle him. This would strongly suggest that live TV isn't really his thing any more.

    It was interesting watching him with Bobby Ball on the Christmas special. Bruce is of that era which would be fine if he had moved on. But he hasn't. I know some people still like him - but that's the time to quit. Don't leave it until even more of us are saying he should go.

    Alexander Armstrong would be good. Maybe Graham Norton. Zoe would do a good job. Fern could take over from Tess as she seems really lovely and would probably think of better questions than 'do you want to dance next week?'.

    Heck, get Kara back, unless it would be awkward with Artem there. Anyone other than Bruce.

    Leave our Brucie alone. he is Mr Strictly. I love it when he fluffs his lines. I agree he did go OTT after Flavia ad Louis had won - scaring all the others away. But he was excited and afraid for Flavia's jump, maybe?? Great series!! Well done Beeb xxx
