Strictly Come Dancing 2018

I think the public will vote for her, the paralympians are sacrosanct to the Brits.
Where did Jonny Peacock finish last year? I genuinely can’t remember...

Aye, but she will still be bottom 2 I think. Judges save Ashley
They’re meant to judge on the two dance performances in front of them in the dance-off & Ashley is pound for pound the better dancer with almost every contestant...
 
She's the best dancer on the show.
It's like last year the magicians wife was the best but like Ashley she didn't get the public vote and so couldn't win.
The public not voting for Ashley is a bit unfair for the poorer dancers. When one of them ends up in the bottom two with her she will easily beat them, so they are effectively out before the dance off starts. Charles had a chance if he'd been up against Lauren who should have been in the bottom two. As it was he's out.
This weeks points total doesn't reflect that. faye top of the leader board with a full house...
 
As much as i don't want her in the final, it has to be hard for tbe lass knowing the public don't like you.
The realisation of this hit her this week.She was probably hoping that last week's vote was a blip along the lines of when Abbey Clancey, Kimberley Walsh and Rachel Stevens found themselves in the dance off at one time or another but she now knows that first off in the Final is the best she can hope for.

If God forbid Ashley comes up against Stacey or Faye in next weeks dance off (and it's a possibility) I wonder if the judges would sacrifice Ashley on account that she won't win the Final?

One thing is certain...the judges will ensure Joe finishes above Lauren next week or that could unleash the above scenario.

Ooh I do like a good conspiracy :lol::lol:and here's hoping the best three dancers are the final three.:neutral:

The stat's show she's the best overal. Faye is close behind. The judges are being ultra picky with Ashley because they know how good she is. I suppose they want to keep the competition open.
I reckon Lauren will win if she gets to the final which it looks like she will. She has the public vote and the final isn't about the judges just the public. Ashley and Faye both have previous dance experience so I think it would be good if Lauren wins.

Joe
Faye
Stacey
Ashley

Lauren gone this week in dance off with Ashley. Joe has a shit load of votes but there are also plenty of steps fans out there too, still think he will win due to sheer numbers.

The beeb make money from the votes but it should be pro judges only. That way the best dancer will always win which often doesn't happen.
When you finish as low as Lauren does and go through you have huge support. Going forward a lot depends on those who voted for the celebrities who get voted off. Who do they switch their alliance to? I reckon if Lauren makes the final she will win it.

if it went judges only then they wouldn't be able to have dancers with experience, the current format works, the fact I'm bloody talking to you about it proves that !
 
Yes. Week by week.

They always say in defence of allowing the likes of Faye and Ashley that experience doesn't matter as ballroom is different. Once it gets to the final how good you are isn't so important as it is then a popularity contest.

What happens to the 15p it costs to vote if they make no money from it?

Sure they do. But not until after the final. Unless I've dreamt it.
