  • Comment number 2.

    This would be a great show.................without the judges that is, Craig is the only one with any sense, he tells it how it is, leave him alone!
    Oh and Len - pipe down man !!

  • Comment number 3.

    Bruce is an embarassment. Ditch him before the show becomes a laughing stock

  • Comment number 4.

    I thought the results show was so amateurish it was embarassing. What is happening to my favourite show. I was down friends last night and they said I was only one not to watch the other show on other side. I asked could we put result show on to see who left. I sat there embarassed to be honest. Claudia looked a mess, as did Tess by the way. Even the group dance wasnt up to much. I am obsessed with all things Strictly but am slowly but surely losing my passion for this show and that upsets me.

    I agree with harleyhoney about Grieg yeah that right leave him alone i like it it made me smile listen to him ,he is the only person made the dancer dance better to show what they can do! Also to comment about Tess dress wish she wore the long dresses as it suit her better and it was lovely last year sorry Tess bring back long dresses,you look gorgeous on it.And Claudia need less make up she is pretty and the hair need tidy sorry I being old fuddy duddy

    Agree with HarleyHoney,too - Craig tells is as it is and at least he is concentrating on the dancing technique. When you get a compliment from Craig the dancers know it's sincere! Bruno, on the other hand, can be too personal and dare I say, pretty offensive sometimes.

    Craig is the only one with any sense, he tells it how it is, leave him alone!

    Craig does tells it how it is. I don't know how many times I be watching Strictly and I have to agree with him.
