Book Review: Strictly Come Dancing Official Annual 2015

Not since Blue Peter have I enjoyed annuals so much. Reading the Strictly Come Dancing Annual each year is always a highlight, and I love to see what will be included.

Strictly Come Dancing Official Annual 2015
The opening of the 2015 edition pays tribute to Sir Bruce, with comments from Craig and Darcey. This is followed by a welcome to Claudia Winkleman, who is excited about extending her presenting relationship on to the main Saturday night show. Tess also has a few words about Sir Bruce and Claudia. And there are also the usual biographies of the celebrities and pros and interviews with the judges.

This year, the main focus of the book is back on the dances. Karen Hardy gives an introduction to each of the dances featured on Strictly, explaining key technique points and what the judges look for.

Executive producer Louise Rainbow explains what is new for this year, admitting that the natural changes in the show (new presenter, new pros) are enough for this year, with the new judges' entrance the only other main change. She mentions the introduction of Around The World week, which we have this Saturday.

There are also articles on the dresses, the hair and their new home in Elstree.

As always, the Strictly Come Dancing Annual always delivers, and it is a must-have for any Strictly fan.
