Everyone brace yourselves for gammons denouncing the BBC for being "woke" because John Waite, who won the Great British Bake Off 9 years ago, will compete with a male partner in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

The 2012 Bake Off winner described his partnership as "a great step forward in representation and inclusion".

'Bout time. Lesser minds will be spewing about this on Facebook et al while "not eating any of that foreign muck" tucking into chips with tomato sauce and washed down by a nice cuppa tea, two sugars of course. That's the gold, right there.

Movie night on Strictly was brilliant!
I agree and I thought John Waite and Johannes were outstanding, they looked like 2 professional dancers. I was curious how the same sex pairing would work in a dance where there is normally a very distinct male and female role but they absolutely nailed it. I also thought Rhys Stephenson and Nancy were exceptional. As you said, movie night was brilliant.

I thought they were just OK on Saturday whereas they were outstanding the previous week.

Loads of 'em
I have to agree. They were good this time but excellent last weekend.

Overall I'm liking Strictly so far.
