ABSTRACT
SIR BRUCE FORSYTH does a professional job on Strictly Come Dancing: despite his midseries holiday from the show, long may he continue. His 'jokes', and the way he tells them, are part of the 'joke'. Arlene Phillips should have been left in her place as a judge. Darcey Bussell was a great ballerina, but what's that got to do with judging 'ballroom dancing', other than keeping your back straight and your fingers at a pretty angle? Talent doesn't die with age � Bruce still entertains my family. The ones who do need advice are Dave Arch and his 'wonderful' orchestra. Who is choosing inappropriate music for the dances? Save ordinary modern tunes for the foxtrot, quickstep, jive, American Smooth and so on. The rumba danced to a Beatles song is so awful, it's blush-inducing. And they should get rid of Tess Daly's badly fitting dresses. She's nice looking, but after seeing the dancers' beautiful, wonderful, well-made, well-fitting costumes, her lumpy garments make me cringe. Otherwise, leave Strictly alone. It works.
