Strictly Come Dancing 8 - Cast Announcement

So, the celebs were announced just after midnight, and most of the names we've been hearing proved to be right. 
  • Anne Widdicombe
  • Felicity Kendall
  • Gavin Henson
  • Goldie
  • Jimi Mistry
  • Kara Tointon
  • Matt Baker
  • Michelle Williams
  • Pamela Stephenson
  • Patsy Kensit
  • Paul Daniels
  • Peter Shilton
  • Scott Maslen
  • Tina O'Brien

Does it make me a bad person that as soon as I saw Anne Widdicombe confirmed, I immediately thought that Darren Bennett must be doing backflips round his living room, because from a height point of view, I'd say he would have been in the frame for her. (Vincent, on the other hand, should be scared).

Michelle Williams (ex-Destinys Child) is obviously the biggest coup casting wise, she should be able to dance. Would've loved to have seen her with Ian (*sob!*) but my money is on her getting one of the new guys. 

Ola, by virtue of winning last year, is due a duffer - my money is that she'll get Paul Daniels. Again, that's based on height, though I would love to see Flavia get him instead. (The Flavia hate is strong!!)

Will be interesting to see Scott Maslen dance, he comes across as a nice chap in interviews but acting wise he does nothing for me. Do not like either Tina O'Brien or Kara Tointon, but I'm prepared to give them a chance. (Again, pairing are going to be key).

They're my initial thoughts, will probably be back later when I've had time to process!!
