I don’t know why I am so ridiculously excited by the news, that Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daley will co-host Strictly Come Dancing next season.
It probably has a lot to do with the fact it’s another small victory for womankind, as in, the first primetime Saturday night show exclusively hosted by women. Or it could be, that the official news today, serves as a simple reminder of the spangle-littered existence of the campest show on telly; out of our minds a mere four months after Abbey Clancy’s spectacular victory.
I suspect it’s a 70/30 mixture of both…….. 60/40? 55/45? And as a person with ‘eclectic’ (some might say dubious) taste in light entertainment, you can pretty much bet your granny, I’ll be there on kick-off night.
Wearing something sequined (maybe also a turban), glass of fizz in hand, cheering on the girls.
