Strictly Come Dancing waltzes to Wembley Arena: live blog

Last year Russell Grant was fired out of a cannon and wicked fairy Craig Revel-Horwood upstaged the celebrities by pirouetting through the air. What will they dream up this year? Don't miss a minute with RT's occasionally hilarious live blog...


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? Or will he be too busy sidling up to his schoolboy crush, Kylie? For it’s not just clod-hopping celebrities who will be entertaining the 6000-strong crowd: both the teeny-tiny pop diva and Girls Aloud will be trying to prove they’ve still got what it takes. And most thrillingly of all, Brucie is back…


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?
