• Brendan Cole has his say on the new Strictly couples: 'Anton and Susannah were way too predictable' 

    I'm so excited to be giving HELLO! the lowdown on my thoughts on Strictly this year - it's going to be very different watching from the comfort of my living room - I'm not sure how that's going to feel - but I can't wait to see how the series pans out. Last night it actually felt like normal - the opening show is always pre-recorded so I always watch that with my wife Zoe. Next week will feel different, but like everyone else I was desperate to see who would be paired with who. What did you think
