Strictly versus X-Factor…Whats’s the nation watching

6 Nov

It is now an autumn TV tradition now. The head to head battle between Strictly Come Dancing and X-Factor.  For years X-Factor bigger, brasher and more “glittery” won at a canter.  Strictly though was a dogged foe, it was tenacious and arguably delivered a more consistent level of entertainment and it seems it is making a difference as Strictly has squeezed past, and stolen a lead on the X-Factor as the infographics below shows.

Strictly Come Dancing…Is Denise Van Outen Cheating?

13 Oct

I don’t mean in doped up athlete kind of way, or passing a brown envelope to the Len Goodman kind of way.

She just seems many levels ahead of the other contestants and arguably this is down to her background of the reknown Syvia Young Stage School and having appeared in quite a few West End Musicals in roles that require significant dancing ability, like Chicago and Legally Blonde

Watching her tonight, only the second week in, her Jive performance was superb. If I didn’t know better I would have thought it was a dance by two of the professionals.

Do people think it right for Denise to take part? Where will her “journey” come from? She pretty much arrived as it were.
