Strictly Come Dancing 17 – Build A Cast

YOU are the Pairing Elves!

So here we are, the votes have been cast, and have been counted and…well not verified, I’m not even sure how you’d go about doing that…but anyway here’s who you’d put with who, if you were in charge. As a collective.

Alex Scott & Gorka Marquez
Anneka Rice & Anton Du Beke
Catherine Tyldesley & Aljaz Skorjanec
Emma Barton & Johannes Radebe
Emma Thynn & Kevin Clifton
Michelle Visage & Giovanni Pernice
Saffron Barker & AJ Pritchard

Chris Ramsey & Amy Dowden
David James & Nadiya Bychkova
Dev Griffin & Katya Jones
James Cracknell & Luba Mushtuk
Jamie Laing & Oti Mabuse
Karim Zeroual & Dianne Buswell
Mike Bushell & Janette Manrara
Will Bailey & Nancy Xu

As to whether this will happen…well I doubt it, but let’s all live in hope.

      Agreed. Oti can take this year off, which is probably a good thing to avoid the SHE ONLY GOT HIGH MARKS COS OF HER SISTER nutters.

  1. Martin

    Are we likely to see Luba’s debut, given the need for height with two of our male celebs?

    And is the most obvious partnership going to be Mike and Janette?

    Or is everyone else getting a Anton – Michelle pairing going on?

    1. Penny

      I was hoping for her to be paired with a woman in an ill-thought-through outbreak of Kristina Rihanoff Memorial Panic, but Monkseal hasn’t given us that option. Would be oddly inevitable for our first same-sex couple to be the bodged result of BBC terror of Too Much Sexy.

      1. Sue Howarth

        As soon as Alex was announced I wondered f they would put her with Katya (snogate aside, that would make a good paring)

  2. Agrippina

    Who do we all think is going to be on the subs bench this year? My pairings left out Graziano and Janette, not exactly by design, but as I could only definitely picture two of the cast in my mind, things got a bit random and I sort of forgot about those two. In reality, it’ll probably be Neil and Luba, again.

    Yes to Anneka and Johannes, definitely. James Cracknell and Oti, I suppose, as at least he’ll be able to keep up with her. Anton seems pretty much doomed to be second boot with Michelle. As for the rest, I expect I’ll still be trying to remember who they all are by the time Halloween comes around…
