Strictly no more Kat
You can hear my sobs across the globe.
Well my first day of A level FREEDOM, Wednesday 20th June 2012, and I wake up to news to find that my favourite professional dancer, lifetime inspiration and somebody whom I have been blessed to know these past few years, Miss Katya Virshilas is to waltz no more on BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing. The last dance is over. Save the last dance…well for the wedding I guess.
The other professionals, however, will remain and return. This was first confirmed by well-known rag but sadly good-with-talent-show shit paper The Sun and then appeared in fellow best-selling shit-shovellers The Mirror and Daily Mail. Distraught, I prayed it was a horrible mistake BUT then other professionals took to Twitter to confirm their Autumn time job and Kristina Rihanoff confirmed to me that she would miss Katya ever so much. So folks, it’s true.
Yes I think it’s the wrong decision if I were to look and it from a BBC show perspective; Katya brought her own personality, talent and teaching ability to the show. However, although it’ll be that little bit worse for me without my favourite dancer but as long as Katya is happy in whatever is next for her and it was by mutual consent than I can get over it.
But this isn’t really about me nor am I about to ask how you feel about the decision considering we do not know circumstances. I am, however, asking if you feel that the cull needed more oomph. Do you feel this shake-up is a little bland? Maybe their were other professionals you weren’t happy with? And whom would you like to see fill Katya’s place on the show?
Comment below and let me know. I’m here all summer now, I have time to chat. Drop me a line – cheer me up for now. In fact, if you don’t comment I might be forced to retreat to my kindle and have to read 50 Shades of Grey. Save me some IQ points guys.
And I’ll add the official BBC statement in later….if we get one.
Tata for now x
