My friends have more interesting lives than me #1

This is one of my mates, Christine Bleakley. She is a presenter on The One Show, and it was announced (ages ago but I haven’t been blogging) that she is going to be one of the contestants on Strictly Come Dancing this year! (That’s Dancing With The Stars if you’re American).

Obviously she will be getting our vote. Jill and I are hoping to go over and see her (if she’s still in it by then) in the show at the start of October, so if that happens I’ll let you know what it was like!

I’m more of an X Factor fan myself (which is brilliant so far this year, I’m glad it’s back), but I will be TIVO that once Strictly starts on September 20 on BBC One.
