Strictly Come Dancing Sweepstake

Posted by Jake on 4th October 2014

With the new season of Strictly Come Dancing well underway, but before the first elimination - I thought it would be a laugh to organise a kind of sweepstake...

That's the TV show on BBC, not our awesome competition running each week at Hifi...

Get Involved!

It's a pound per bet, and you can enter as many times as you like.  You can give me the cash when I see you and all money will be added to the prize fund, which will be split between those people who pick the winner of the show.

If you want to enter, just post a comment below with your choice of celebrity or celebrities.  You enter as many celebrities as you like, each time for a pound - but all entries must be posted here before the first results show on Sunday 5th October at 7:20pm.

Place your bets now!  I'm putting a quid on Simon Webbe.

Nearly a decade ago, I resolved to run a salsa night the way I thought it should be run and the idea for StreetSalsa was born.  The rest as they say is history..

I've made some of the best friends you could wish for through dancing, and want to share what a life-changing experience dance can be.

Put me down for a quid on Scott Mills!

That's brave ;)

I know - but it's all a bit of fun, eh?

By Richard on 4th October 2014 at 17:40

I can probably risk a pound ;)

By the way, you can pick a celebrity someone else has chosen - it just means the prize money will be split between everyone who has chosen that celebrity, so if you manage to pick an outsider who wins - then you'll be quids in...

I've only just caught up on last week's show. Put me down for a quid on Pixie Lott and Trent Whiddon too - that dance was awesome!

Well none of use managed to pick the winner of Strictly this year - Caroline proved to be quite the surprise package!  But what a deserved winner she was.  That show dance was my favourite of the season!

By Siobhan on 28th December 2014 at 19:21

That show dance was just heaven. I wanted to be involved in it!!

By Jake on 28th December 2014 at 20:31

Yeah that swung it for me, she definitely deserved to win!
