Chelsee and Pasha at Strictly Come Dancing Quarter Finals

Gecko was delighted when we won two tickets to the Strictly Come Dancing Quarter Finals! What a day!!! Two avid fans arrived at about 12.30pm to join an already long queue… we stood in the cold for an hour to gain our places – we were no. 190 and 191. Once we had our number we were allowed to go, warm up and look round the fabulous Westfield – and get something to eat. Then back again by 3pm to queue again to get in… handing our mobile phones in (strictly strict security) then into TV studio, passing Gene Hunt’s Audio and into BBC TV Centre. Time for a warming cup of coffee… then to our seats for the filming. We were sat at the back – but our view was good and we thoroughly enjoyed the show, from the celebrity dances, the judges remarks to the fabulous Alfie Boe.

During the show (not while the filming was taking place) we said Hi to Brendan Cole… so afterwards Brendan gave us the ‘sacred wristbands’ so that we could go up to the BBC Bar to mingle with the dancers, celebrities and guests.

We loved catching up with Brendan – and meeting Anton, Chelsee, Holly, Claudia, Craig, Bruno, etc, etc. It was a great evening… special thanks from Gecko to Brendan for letting us join in the fun!

Strictly speaking…Only a week until we find out who will be dancing! Gecko recently worked with Brendan Cole and we discovered what a thoroughly decent guy he was – and learned a few dance steps too. So, of course we will be supporting Brendan in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing – but who will his partner be?

We were looking through our images and found this one of Camilla Dallerup, who was the Strictly Come Dancing Champion in 2008, showing one of the Gecko team how to tango!

We’re looking forward to seeing who the contenders are for this year’s Strictly.
