Along with many millions of people, I love the weekend's installments of Strictly Come Dancing. I love the music, the costumes, the celebrities and the professionals and this book contains all of that as long with many more.
The book contains a summary of series 7, both the high and low points along with who goes out when. There are brilliant photographs capturing the magic of the show. Next follows a great section on the new dances included last year - this was really interesting reading with the history of the dance and also the moves you can expect to see within a dance.
The book then seems to get a bit confusing - meeting celebrities and professionals are intermixed with great articles on each of the judges, behind the scenes tours - including a great article on my favorite area, the costume department. I love the outfits and when watching It Takes Two, Claudia Winklemann's BBC2 show. I love the chats with the designer and seamstresses. There are also pages on Americas Dancing With the Stars, both series 9 and 10, and the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour and Series winner, Chris Hollins.
All the articles are full of great facts and interesting stories and I really enjoyed reading through the annual. As with all annuals there are a number of quizzes and puzzles at the end of the book.
This is a book for Strictly fanatics everywhere!
Thank you to Prima Magazine for sending me this book.
