A wry view of life for the world-weary

Rule Of The Week

strictly

The Great British public was shocked when an arcane rule was triggered last Sunday. No, I’m not talking about Theresa May’s announcement that Article 50 will be triggered by the end of March 2017 but something more important to the welfare of the nation, Strictly Come Dancing.

Anastacia reportedly tore some internal scars from her double mastectomy operation which meant that she was unable to take part in the elimination dance off with Kiss FM DJ, Melvin Odoom (me neither). Rather than giving the injured celeb the order of the boot, the Beeb revealed a house rule that said in such circumstances the participant with the lowest public vote would be shown the door.

So Melvin’s hopes of glitterball glory were o’doomed, the 11th male to exit in the first round in 14 series, and Anastacia lives to fight another day. Can’t think these shenanigans have helped her popularity ratings. An early exit is on the cards, methinks.
