Yes, for one week only, Strictly Come Dancing is taking over Wembley Arena. Rumour has it that Victoria Pendleton will be back in the saddle: pedalling a BMX suspended by wires. Louis Smith, meanwhile, will apparently be impressing with a backflip or three. Can Michael Vaughan lift more than a cricket bat in an American Smooth?

I don't know about you but I need a lie down at the thought of all that excitement. But I'll be back at 6.30pm with a glass of something potent to get me through. Do join.

Go on, you know you want to.

Pretty please?
