It's Showtime! Again!... Strictly Series Ten!


It's that time of year again, one minute it was summer (or not!) and now we are swiftly heading into Autumn… which means… it's Strictly time again! It's hard to believe the hit show is in its tenth series, with Anton & I having danced in each and every one… and who would have thought it could get any better, but indeed it has: what a fabulous line up for 2012!

Strictly Line Up, 2012

And I've got the perfect man for the job: Richard Arnold, what a sweetheart!  Richard is normally used to commenting on celebrity life from the comfort of his sofa on ITV's 'Daybreak'. He has now been thrust into the glittering spotlight and I'm thrilled to have been paired with him. I had a hoot with Rory last year, so to have another sharp witted man by my side makes for lots of fun and laughter – and that sharp sense of humour is going to come in very handy particularly with Craig's comments! Bring it on!

Erin Boag and Richard Arnold

Richard is no newcomer to competitive reality television shows: he has featured on Celebrity Mastermind and Celebrity Masterchef, doing rather well in both. I'm only hoping he knows his Tap from his tapas, his Merengue from his meringue, and doesn't think I mean a dip when I say Salsa! (Couldn't resist it, sorry!… Just as long as he relishes the experience! Enough, enough, no more I promise!!)

Richard is used to breaking the latest showbiz exclusives, and is already revealing all the back stage news as it happens via twitter. Be sure to follow him for all the latest gossip and sneaky back stage photos (must make sure I'm looking at my best with that camera about). Richard's also getting the celebrity vote too judging by the tweets and well wishes of support from his celebrity pals.

I'll keep you up to speed via twitter over the gruelling weeks to come. I've got my fingers crossed we're going to make it right to the end, but there's lots and lots of hard work ahead, starting with sorting his left foot out from his right… then we'll be off!

Training beckons, so till next time… And don't forget, keeeeep following us on twitter: @ErinBoag and @RichardAArnold.

Lots of love


P.S. Oh and before I go… I'm so pleased Anton has been paired with the fabulous Jerry Hall. Has he finally met his match?! We had thought that either Nancy or Ann could lick him into shape but they just fell for his charms and had an absolute ball as we all know. Hopefully the stunning Texan beauty will have him under her spell in no time!

As ever, I will be rooting for you again this year Erin. You and Anton have always been my favourite pro dancers so I am keeping my fingers crossed for you both. I think both your partnerships should be lots of fun and make for some compulsive viewing.
Take care, Bxxx

Hi Erin I am very sorry you are leaving Strictly Come Dancing, because you are moving on to better things. I will miss you very much as I have seen you all these years on Tv and at the Symphony Hall Birmingham every year. I hope very much that you and Anton reappear on Strictly Come Dancing and that you will continue to appear at the Symphony Hall Birmingham. Wishing you the very best for the future. Paul
