One of my big wishes for the season was that they gave Matt Cutler a good partner (not that Carol wasn't...) and they've done that in Aleeha - I think I'm really going to enjoy them!! I think the mixed married couples has the potential to be interesting - I also think there;s no way that James will walk all over Gabby the way he did Georgina last year! They resisted the tempataion to pair Stephanie Beacham with Anton -but I think they're playing to his strengths in his partner - I can see her being great at ballroom and awful at latin.

Kelly and Brendan was the pairing everyone was speculating about - I'm not sure about it myself... she's a good looking girl, but somewhat of a personality free zone and we all know Brendan's temper! (Though she does have stage school experience, so we could be okay...) Darren and Lilia could have their work cut out for them - Lilia definitely does, I'll be interested to see Darren and Tish Dean. Hoping that the editors refrain from making it look like Camilla is falling for her partner (though they've done it for the last 3 seasons so I won't hold my breath! Though with the EDC, it's pretty well known that she has a boyfriend, so maybe....)

Slight problem in that it apparently starts on October 6th - which means I'll be in Londaon at Serenity Infinity!! Will have to be anti-social and rush up to the room I think....
