Post categories:

BBC Eurovision Andrew BBC Eurovision Andrew | 18:41 UK time, Monday, 13 September 2010

We promised you web exclusives and here's the first one - a sneak peak at Michelle and Brendan in the training room.


We'll be posting new training videos every day up until the series starts so stay tuned...





  • Comment number 1.

    She is funny , I think it is half of the battle having an endearing personality on this show. Being a good dancer is all well and good but it is also an entertainment show. It is not a professional dance competition, I like the contestants to have some character as well as dance skills. I'm already liking Michelle for her comedy.

    Well lesson 1 was obviously how to put on leg warmers and recognise a whippet? B4p

  • Comment number 3.

    I think she is too thin and because of that her hips just won't show enough. Think she is great though. Very brave to be fist on the web and she will do well with Brendan

    "Watch the video to find out what dance Michelle and Brendan are training to perform in front of the judges for the first live show."

    Well Michelle mentioned the Waltz but there was no Waltz training. In fact there was barely anything that could be called 'training' at all.

    Is this what the message board was sacrificed for?

  • Comment number 5.

    Love the idea of daily training clips but any chance of them being a bit longer!?

  • Comment number 6.

    She looks like she could be a good laugh (therefore good viewing).

    I agree with msg 5 though, longer videos please BBC, really wet our appetites! lol.

  • Comment number 7.

    She says they are oing the Cha cha cha but perhaps they should have done the waltz.

    I agree she looks like she will have hip issues in the latin.

    Personally I hope she calms a bit. Not a lot just a bit.

    Unfortunatly i can't watch the clip it's not availible abroard, but i can imagine it's good. I think they make a good pair the both seem very spirited. Can't wait till oct. the 1st.

    These two are gonna fall out. This partnership has got Sarah Manners written all over it!!! Brendan's doing a good job of disguising his irritation, but watch out ... sparks will fly. And not the good sort.

    @sid1979 Glad that you're enjoying the exclusive training clips! There will be one from each of the couples in the run up to the start of the series and they will vary in length. So stay tuned...

  • Comment number 11.

    I really like Michelle, She's funny and doesn't seem to be taking things "too" seriously.
    I look forward to seeing what her and Brendan come up with...knowing Brendan though it will be omething special!

  • Comment number 12.

    Cheers Andrew - am especially looking forward to seeing Anton & Anne in training. I think they're going to be a scream!

  • Comment number 13.

    I think Brendon is in for a heck of a ride.
    Looks like she is going to be great fun.

  • Comment number 14.

    Had to look up to find out who Michelle was - oops! must be getting old and out of touch. This video didn't win me over and unfortunately Im not a fan of Brendan either, so given all that I think the pairing is good, but I do believe sparks will fly as dollysequin mentioned.

  • Comment number 15.

    Please let me swap places with Gavin.Please!

  • Comment number 16.

    I find it great that there is to partners who connect and have fun but can still come out at the weekend looking great.

  • Comment number 17.

    I think Michelle's long legs will be her downfall! Don't think this is going to be a partnership made in heaven. Watch out it's going to be a bumpy ride!

  • Comment number 18.

    hello I am hopeless with this new blogs eh!! so hope this work!!!!
    I am glad to see my lovely Brendan on the floor and was a bit disappointed with michelle thought she will be good but lack of movement with her arm and long leg she need to relaxed and move like a swan..

    I had a good laugh at Ann widd and couldn't help thinking what she be like when do salsa and rumba ooh!!

  • Comment number 19.

    I also was surprise to see Pam dance really very good, go girl!! James deserve to win!! and oh! hey Kara was brill, like to see what she can do more!!!

  • Comment number 20.

    Dear lord I wouldn't mind dancing with Brendan if he's going to do that! hehehehe.
    Seriously, Michelle does need lower heels, glad that Len pointed that out as well, she should be less "teetery", what to do about those flyaway arms though *sigh*

    Thoughts are with Brendan and his family at this sad time.

  • Comment number 21.

    Is it only me? but I much prefer the format of last years blogs. At least then you know you had a reply. Does anybody "upstairs" read these comments?. Would be a good idea if the celebs donated some of their appearance money to "Help The Heroes". Bet Brucie would agree to that.

  • Comment number 22.

    Just watched the video above of Brendan and Michelle. I bet Brendan is really fed up of her!!! she is such a bore..... He has looked absolutely fed up to the back teeth with her since the show started. You can tell she does not like any critisism but lets face it she is rubbish and I hope she and Anne go this week, lets make it a double exit......
