What happens when you get a group of whip-smart five-year-old girls to watch some Strictly? A new video shared by BBC Three shows fans just how adorable and hilarious their reactions are to the show. The girls share their views on the new contestants, including Lee Ryan, Kate Silverton and Dr Ranj Singh. After singing the opening credits together (da da da da da da daaa!), one girl points out that Kate, "Looks like Oscar's mum, except with shorter hair," while her friend observes that Danny John-Jules looks like her daddy, "Except with more hair." The girls collectively decide that they prefer former Blue boyband member Antony Costa to Lee Ryan, and call YouTuber Joe Sugg, "Sluggy sluggy sluggy head". They also predicted that cricket star Graeme Swann will win before announcing that judges Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood are "in love".
