Strictly Come Dancing 2019 – Launch Show Discussion/Poll

The launch show may not bring much in the way of surprises thanks to the Pairings Spoiler but there will still be lots to talk about. This is our first proper look at the class of 2019 and the first time we will see them paired with their professional partners.

One of the couples will not be participating as Jamie announced he has retired from the series due to injury however a replacement is expected to be announced in the coming days (possibly tomorrow)

But who stood out for you in tonight’s launch show. And who might be first out. You can let me know here in the comments section or over on Facebook or Twitter. I’ve no prizes yet for getting involved but when the series kicks off proper you can win iPads or Amazon Vouchers in the 2019 Strictly Spoiler Competition.

Normally I’d be posting a poll once everyone has been paired up but I’m going to hang fire until Jamie’s replacement has been announced so watch out for that in the coming days! It will be added to this post and will also be on the contestant announcement post! Poll is now open below!

I don’t have any prizes quite yet but very soon the biggest competition this site has run kicks off with 4 prizes up for grabs each and every week of the 2018 series. You can find more details HERE. Or why not head on over to Facebook and join in with the celebrations when we reach 10k page likes. There’s a £50 voucher up for grabs on Facebook.

This website will be going down next weekend for maintenance whilst I migrate it over to the clustered hosting solution I used towards the end of the 2017 to keep the site up at peak times. At the same time my hosting costs will increase by a factor of 100 from £3 a month to £300 a month. Many of you have already helped me out so far this series including a very generous £25 donation this morning but I’m as grateful to those who donate £1 as I am to those who donate more. If you want to, and can afford to, help out with my increasing hosting costs, want to buy me a pint or just want to say thanks for all the spoilers you can donate through THIS LINK or using the button below. If you can use the link please do because if you use the button the big corporate bigwigs at PayPal will take all the money but if you use the link it sends it all to me

If you can’t get on the website during the maintenance period don’t panic, I haven’t gone anywhere and the site will be back up before the start of week 1 of the series.
