Len Goodman said last year that the lineup was so good it was the first time ever he had heard of everyone taking part. I think it’s safe to say this year he won’t be saying the same. When a WAG and a singer without an hit single in years are two of the biggest names you have problems. I’ve read comments from both male and female fans complaining about the lack of eye candy and I agree. Yes it’s dancing ability that’s most important, but you need as much of the full package as possible.
I’m not sure how much it will be worth watching this year. I will watch the launch show and give it a few more shows before making up my mind. But there is that much good television on at the minute that I may not have to keep watching it until the end. The results show won’t be much better with Claudia Winkleman co presenting dressed in too much black like she’s been to a funeral.
The problem the show has is that it’s been going for so many years that the talent pool to take part has dwindled. Even the Celebrity Big Brother lineup has a better group of well known famous faces. With the return of Sharon Osbourne to X Factor, beating them in the ratings last year looks like being a one off before normal service resumes.
