We need to talk about music. Strictly precariously straddles the worlds of ballroom and entertainment, so it can’t – and shouldn’t – be wall-to-wall Victor Silvester, but we’ve reached a crisis point. Song and theme choices (as I understand it, some suggested by pros, but producers hold sway) are now actively handicapping couples, who can only hope to hint at the style they’re supposed to be doing rather than actually dance it. Beginners really don’t need the extra challenge, nor, apparently, will it earn them goodwill from the increasingly outspoken judges.
