    I have a feeling that the winner will be fixed. The Beeb will make Emma and Anton win so he can retire having won, and there will be an hour long special programme about his time on Strictly.

    I wish my school would fix it for me to retire at 53. I'd only have 2 terms left!

    Emma just seems to have one fixed expression on her face - considering she is an actress and all that ? I find her very annoying. Liked Kelvin's Paso as it was less of the predictable but had all of the menace. I watch Karim and Amy and think yeah he has the moves but ' so what ? '.....interesting to observe the reactions of the professional dancers after the performances ..., some look as if they are going through the motions ... which of course they are ?! I wish the judges would refrain from standing up. Tess needs to be ' shocked ' every time she deploys the phrase / variations of ' little, look and face' ....

    I suspect you're right. I won't be a bit impressed. I hope Kelvin plays a blinder.

    Scandalous if fixed !!
    Enjoy reading the Strictly BTL thread in the Guardian. I think the producers of the show should take note of some of the comments / observations/ advice

    I'm puzzled by the suggestion of how a winner could be fixed. How exactly would that be achieved?

    They'd just vote as directed?
    £200K for 3 months' work? Do as you're told!

    o_O The final is a public vote, no judges.

    Who would vote as directed?

    Its possible to fix it so that someone they want is in the final and then try to manipulate the hype to persuade the public to vote for their nominated favourite. It’s certainly happened this year with Chris and Karen and Alex and Neil. Chris has been set up to leave in the semi. Obvious Chris wouldn’t hold up against Karim.

    Give over, it's not that important.

    Not in the grand scheme of things, but presumably important to those taking part.

    I bet you any money you like it's a fix.

    Just listen to Alma Cogan describe how they eliminate the contestants.

    If it’s a public vote no-one will ever know the truth!

    Aha. I thought it was the other way round. Thought the judges errr... judged the final.
    But the producers could just lie about the public vote.

    The conspiracy theories abound.LOL
    I suspect Anton will go out in the first part of the final and then a straight fight between the other two,

    Actually, one of the producers as a child used to be a regular in our house as we were good friends with their parents - but since we moved quite a few years ago we’ve lost that close connection and haven’t seen them socially in ages.

    I’m sure there is so much behind the scenes gossip I could glean if I invited our old friends around for a mince pie or two. I’m tempted. It would be nice to see them after so long. When all the kids were small we used to go to the crib service at church together at Christmas, followed by tea at our house. It was one of those lovely traditions that died out once our kids got too old for it.

    Funny how the person who loses the dance off is always the same one as predicted by a website on Saturday night. It must influence the judges' decision.
