Lights, music, dancers, laughter, glamour and glitter, oh lots and lots of glitter. Saturday found us at the Strictly Come Dancing show at the SECC in Glasgow.
The SECC was transformed into something magical, just like being inside your own telly when the Strictly Come Dancing show is on. Even better, there was no Bruce Forsyth and his lousy jokes. The host was Zoe Ball and she was amazing, wearing a floor length black sparkling gown she danced with the professionals to open the show, then kept the whole thing going for the next three hours of total fun.
The infamous judges were present and all resplendant in tartan and kilts. Matt Baker (I'm afraid Idgy is now in love!) even promised a back flip in a kilt if he won, this had many a text finger clicking throughout the show.
Pamela Stephenson won the day with the most elegant of waltzes and then a tango that was on fire. That lady can dance!
Ann Widdecombe did a comedy dance routine with Mr Nasty himself, Craig Revel Horwood. He in kilt and Scottish flag boxers, she in sky blue glitz, their charlstone just brought the house down.
It was just amazing, a bit of unexpected glitz and glamour on a Saturday afternoon in Glasgow. Our gang of five (Lis, Ali, Rosemary, Idgy and me of course) had a ball, ate too many chocolates, oohed and aahed over the dancing and dresses, and imagined just for a little while that we too could dance like that.
So this photo says it all in one word.
Great big enormous thanks to the lovely Zoe for the tickets and for being such a star.
