Keep on dancing, Susanna

 


Strictly Come Dancing

Saturday
LIVE ON BBC1

THE HAIRY BIKER IS NOW 500 MILES AWAY….

A deviation today to something I know very little about and, with two left feet, have even less aptitude for personally.

We’re talking Strictly Come Dancing 2013 – a novelty market yes – but pretty much the same rules apply as any other market. If you think the market is wrong – and differs substantially with your own view it’s time to step in (without stepping on her feet that is).

The competition now gets serious – the novelty acts are out of the way – this year’s John Sergeant / Ann Widdecombe was Hairy Biker Dave Myers who needs to be 500 miles away from Blackpool Ballroom after a lamentable performance last week when he ‘danced’ to the tune of I Would Walk 500 Miles by The Proclaimers.

Hot favourite is Natalie Gumede who failed to dance last week through a late injury.

From what I’ve seen BBC Breakfast host Susanna Reid looks interesting on Star Sports at around 6/1.

She comes across well on the shows with an engaging personality without any arrogance that can often put off voters.

Keep on dancing Susanna.

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

A plum-sized diamond known as the Pink Star has fetched a record-breaking $83m (£51.7m) at auction.

Sotheby’s said it was a world record price for a gemstone.

The flawless 59.60-carat pink diamond is the largest in its class ever graded by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), with the second biggest less than half its size.

Set on a ring, it measures 2.69 by 2.06 centimetres and weighs 11.92 grammes.

There was applause as Sotheby’s David Bennett brought down the hammer in the heavily-guarded Geneva salesroom.

Noting that its pre-sale estimate had been $61m (£38m), he told reporters: “It surpassed our estimate. It’s a large amount of money in itself but I don’t think this stone has a price.”
