I really shouldn't admit to watching dancing with the stars. but i do....

the 'stars' this year have been criticised this year for being well...not stars.

Personally i find them funny - Geeling Ng is an actress/maitre'd but is promoted as the "China Girl" from David Bowies China Girl video in like, 1908.

Monty Beetham i am impressed by.

Martin Devlin makes me laugh.

Miriama Smith had a relationship with Ex all black Frank Bunce when she was about 18 so to be honest, that's why i know of her (she went to the same high school as me - about a year older).

Apart from that.....

well, i did hear criticisms that the stars are now the dancers themselves. Personally i think Stefano Oliveri gives me the heebees, Hayley Holt is seeing ritchie mccaw (there goes my dream wedding to an all black) and my mother adores Aaron Gilmore (who is quite sweet actually apparently).

But stars? Nope. Then again, i saw on Strictly Come Dancing Esther Rantzen, Jill Halfpenny and numerous eastenders stars. bleurgghhh.

The only vaguely interesting one would have been Natasha Kaplinsky and Brendan Cole....no....they didnt have an affair or anything....
