Ah, Strictly theme weeks. Regular readers will know I look forward to these about as much as emergency root canal surgery with a rusty saw. We reached a nadir last year with the addition of Donnie (Baby!) Osmond during Movie Week. On the upside: no Donnie. On the downside: everything else. I’ve never longed so much for a mass elimination to put everyone – pros, celebs, judges, viewers – out of their misery. Let’s begin with whichever producer is convinced that the addition of dog tails, lightsabers and woeful puns equals three billion extra viewers. How about keeping the ones you’ve got?
