DELIGHTED that the lovely Tristan is involved, had a feeling they'd put him with Pamela! I really liked her during her season, so I'm looking forward to seeing this pair.
Given that Cheryl allegedly had said she wanted to dance with Gilles again, I don't know whether or not to be surprised that he got Peta and she got Emmet!
Drew Lachey and the lovely Anna T.. HURRAY!!!!
Derek and Shawn. Why am I not surprised?
Loved Joey and Kym back in season 4, can't wait to see them dance again!!
Really looking forward to this season now!!
