Strictly Come Dancing 2011: Audley Harrison’s Second Chance And Edwina’s Eggshells
The stand out name is Daniel Lobb, a victim of nominative determinism who used to be Britain’s 18th best tennis player before slipping down the rankings to become the country’s 34th best sports presenter for Daybreak, the nation’s fifth best early morning TV show.
Other sports stars included:
Robbie Savage – Former footballer who loves to be seen and talks himself to the centre of every story. Look out for him dancing with himself.
Nancy Dell’Olio – How long ago it seems since Nancy and Sven were English football’s First Family. Whimsical.
Audley Harrison – takes time out form fighting nightclub club doormen in professional boxing rings to dancing for fame. Once upon a time the BBC gave Audley £1million to become the world’s best boxer, often dressed in sequinned shorts. This time we will see the BBC once again try to make Audley a champion – with MORE sequins.
Rory Bremner – Place your bets for how long until Rory executes an impression of the show’s superannuated shot Bruce Forsyth. The smart betting is on “seconds”.
Anita Dobson – Fills the slot marked former EastEnders star.
Lulu – Ubiquitous.
Edwina Currie – former MP who shagged John Major and warned us about bad eggs. Most likely to argue back at judges.
Jason Conovan – Australia’s real Peter Andre.
Russell Grant – Comedy value will seem him through to the show’s latter rounds before stargazer is dumped on his backside – literally. We’ve seen it coming, Russell. Have you?
Chelsee Heale,Holly Valance, Harry Judd, Alex Jones – three people whose names are prefixed by their jobs : Waterloo Road actress, former Neighbours actress, drummer with McFly and BBC TV host.
