Strictly Come Dancing will finally grace our screens again as its 21st season gets underway. We should all make sure we’re free on the evening of September 16 as that’s when the bright lights are turned back on and the dancing stars begin their quest for victory.
The 21st edition of the show will feature celebrities such as Amanda Abbington, Angela Rippon, Layton Williams, Les Dennis, Nigel Harman, and so many more. As most Brits endure the tough landscape of the cost-of-living crisis, seeing these rich celebrities get showered with more adulation will help them forget about their troubles for a while.
I consider Strictly a useful service in that sense, but keep in mind that I have long been tempted to enter the show myself. Whilst I don’t have the grace to go deep into the competition, I certainly possess the economic resources to launch a competent bid.
It’ll be fascinating to see what tricks the competitors have up their sleeves and trying to predict the winner is pointless at this stage. Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, and others will be on-hand to assess the performances, and I’m excited to hear what the sardonic Horwood has to say.
We’ve officially entered ‘competition season’ as far as British television is concerned, as I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here is also due to return soon, providing us with some gross-out entertainment for those long winter nights. If you ask me, this is the best time of year for the small screen (I say small, but I assure you my television is far larger than yours) and we can’t take it for granted. Seeing the mesmeric dances on Strictly, combined with the bushtucker trials in Australia, put us in the Christmas spirit.
No matter who emerges victorious from this year’s Strictly, I’m sure we’ll be thoroughly entertained. It’s not about who wins, it’s about what the show means to the public that counts.
