Triple P has been away for a time but is now back and looking forward to the return of Strictly. Not a very stellar cast this year and seemingly aimed more at the age group for the X-Factor with which it is going directly up against in the schedules.
Three pieces of rent-a-totty this year should engage our interest over the coming weeks. Firstly, toy-boy snatcher Caroline Flack who will be hoping for a ratings defeat of X-Factor after Simon Cowell kicked her out of her Xtra-Factor presenting job. Top bet to have a fling with her dance partner (but see below).
Secondly, girl group The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge who is already looking like a great little mover. We can't say we know or could name even one song from The Saturdays (unlike Girls Aloud) so they really are a triumph of image over music.
Finally, slightly more famous singer Pixie Lott (top) who Triple P sat on the next table to once while having afternoon tea in The May Fair hotel. She impressed us then with her toned thighs in a very short skirt so we hope she will remain in for some time.
So Rachel Riley, from last year's show, has owned up to what was completely obvious to everyone else: that she is having a fling with her professional dance partner Pasha Kovalev. Flack is Kovalev's partner this year so that could be interesting. Expect Riley to turn up on the live shows to keep an eye on him!
Ola is back but has been told off by the BBC for criticising the show so we don't think she will come back next year. It all depends on the ratings!
