Strictly Speaking Week 2

Week 2 AKA Girls Run The World Week saw a cluster of female celebs at the top of the leaderboard and the slick duo of Tess and Claudia helming the show with a startling level of professionalism.

Yes, Brucie is a loveable fixture on Strictly (along with Dave Arch’s grim smile to camera and the wardrobe department affixing ruffles to anything that moves), but let’s be honest – it does cut the show time down by half when the presenter can a) see the autocue, b) read the autocue, and c) remember where they are.

Plus the chin-waggler’s absence means Tess can abandon all pretence of jocular improvised banter and concentrate on speeding through intros, while quick-witted Claudia (CLAUDIA!) bonds with contestants and imbues life into the most tedious of links. The search for a male presenter to replace Bruce is totally unnecessary – leave the show in the hands of the girls and it will rocket up the sequinometer in no time.
