What's On The Cards For Strictly Series 10?!

It's hard to believe, but this will be our tenth series on Strictly Come Dancing. The show has been an enormous part of both our lives since it burst onto television screens back in 2004, and it just gets better and better. This year sees a sensational line up, and in terms of the pairings – and to coin a Brucie phrase – 'didn't they do well!'

Jerry Hall and Richard Arnold are our celebrity partners for 2012, and we're hoping for great things, not least the possibility of holding that glitter ball up in the air at the finals! So Jerry and Richard take note, we've got high hopes for you both!

We're also excited to welcome Darcey Bussell to the judges' panel — she will be a great addition to the show...  let's hope she's going to be kind with us!

So as the whirlwind starts yet again, the coming weeks will fly by: working our celebrity dance partners as hard as we can, rehearsing for those fabulous group dances, costume fittings and numerous interviews and television appearances… It's Strictly time, and we absolutely love it!

Be sure to keep a step ahead by following us both on twitter (@theAntonDuBeke & @ErinBoag), where you'll get all the gossip and action as it happens. And keep tabs on our progress via our Brucie-inspired 'Play Your Cards Right' Strictly scorecards – we'll keep them updated with the scores and video clips of all our dances from each show so you can watch them over and over again.


So, we're off to polish our shoes, slip on our sequins... and prepare for a showstopper of a series! Until next time, keeeeep dancing!

Lots of love,

Anton & Erin

Hi, I'm looking forward to this series of SCD. My husband and i did start ballroom dancing lessons but because of my health we had to stop. So, i love to watch SCD and imagine dancing myself

Good luck guys. Anton I really hope you're putting together some sassy & cool Latin routines for our Jerry (filled with proper steps and not too much faffing about!). I'm not worried about the Ballroom though. I think that's going to be glorious :-)

Anton, wishing you much success for the new series of SCD. I adore The series, especially you. The longer you stay in the competition, the more enjoyment I shall have. Good luck darling.

So happy Strictly's back. Erin, I think you've got a lovely partner in Richard. He seems like a very happy-go-lucky guy and will try his hardest. Anton, I'm a huge fan of Jerry Hall's so treat her right hun!!! I heard her say in an interview that she's
doing lots of strutting and posing in her Cha Cha. Is that wise given the new panel this series is more focused on dancing? Anyway hope it all works out and all 4 of you stay in the show for a long, long time x x x

We are still watching 2010 series - Waaaaay behind in good old South Africa!! Still I enjoy the series, even though we know who is going to win. Loved you and Ann Widdecombe. I laughed out loud.
