    I am a HUGE fan of Strictly and have watched it religiously.

    However, I feel it could do with a bit of a re-vamp....X-factor changes its format to keep it current, Why can't the BBC do that with strictly?

    I don't think it needs a HUGE change, but perhaps having a "Wildcard" option or something where an ordinary member of the public is a contestant too?

    I just think it's about time they changed it and included the fans who adore it so much. I'd LOVE to be on Strictly and I'm sure lots of other people would too!

    I think you are missing the point-it is all about celebs learning to dance-not "ordinary" members of the public with no support-different show and format entirely

    People are paid to be "humiliated " vast sums-you might say you will do it for nothing-but don't know you from adam if you see what i mean

    So no -don't change it-it aint broke -yet

    Anyway -all comments are invited to cha cha over to here-

    It seems the OP is well aware of the format, point of the show.

    They were simply giving their "point of view " as a self-procliamed HUGE fan of the programme as to a potential tweak of the format that they felt might bring it a bit closer to the fans.

    Presumably this wlid-card member of the public would be assigned a professional partner, intructor, choreographer ie: support.
