Yes, I've never watched more than the odd episode but it is a pretty self contained series you'd think would be quite repeatable, and certainly something you could watch as a box set years later.

I doubt The BBC would ever consider repeating a whole series of The Apprentice on BBC One.

Well I was thinking Dave, or more likely just boxsetting them on the iPlayer or BritBox, but they'd be perfectly acceptable late night filler. They've screened many US series (quite a while after they've taken place) and I doubt repeats of old UK series would rate much differently.

The way things are going at the moment I suspect the audience might be pulled for the early shows, but I think if they can go ahead it'll actually work quite well. The trickier thing may be the Clauditorium , but I guess if they only have the dancers being interviewed up there it'll be easy enough with social distancing.

Will be nice too that the judges have room to swing a cat at their desks - they've always looked so cramped compared to other talent shows.


If they follow DWTS in America, they might just not have a co-host area this year.

If they follow DWTS they'll have to ditch the co-host first.

Seems to me this week's had rather more dancing than the first one, I don't know if that was a decision made this week in response to the reaction and they'd re-edited it with that in mind or it was made weeks ago and it just happened to be the case (or it was the same as last week but it just seemed like that).

Strictly can't really win here because they could have just shown back-to-back performances but presumably they thought it would be nice to get in all the judges and the dancers and the contestants, and do all the bits of business and make it as much like a proper new show as possible rather than just stringing clips together. But there does seem to be a very vocal sub-set of Strictly viewers who take it all very, very seriously, more so than the programme itself probably. A bit like Eurovision in that regard.

It had a lengthy bashing on Points of View today.

What show doesn't?

This week my wife gave up on the programme after several minutes in and changed the channel, stating "there's not enough actual dancing in it". It's a pity considering the vast back catalogue of dance routines the show should have access to in order to fill an episode.

Good article here.

Interesting to see the talk of "close companion cohorts" as being an industry standard. Only really seen Ant and Dec talk about that.

Otherwise they're relying on support bubbles so one of each duo will live in a single household and be the +1 of their partners household.

The Clauditorium is axed it seems. Couples will sit in the audience around tables.
