New Strictly Come Dancing Line up.

#Stictly Come Dancing new line up - Friday 22nd September is tipped as being the start of the new series of Strictly Come Dancing. It may well be a tribute night to the great Bruce Forsyth who sadly passed on the 18th August. Both Stuart and I got to work with him on the Generation Game, Stuart went back and twice did Stunt Fight episodes where he judged the public. If only we had YouTube back then we might have those memories but it was without doubt a different era. Shirley Ballas replaces Len as head judge. Shirley, 56, of Wallasey in the North of England is a Latin dance champion nicknamed, The Queen of Latin. A big hit in the USA as a judge on Dancing With The Stars, she is rumoured to have outshone job rivals Anton Du Beke and Brendan Cole at auditions for the new #SCDseason. Maybe, but I suspect both are being readied for another panel leaver or double take over. The Sun claims that the following celebs are confirmed.
Gemma Atkinson from Emmerdale
Ruth Langsford the ITV presenter.
Davood Ghadami from EastEnders (there is always one)
Mollie King from The Saturdays (always a pop star)
Brian Conley, TV funnyman.
Rev Richard Coles is a priest and former pop star with the Communards.
Joe McFadden from Holby City. (home BBC team member)
Aston Merrygold's a dancer known as the JLS pop star may start as favourite.
Simon Rimmer from Sunday Brunch.
Susan Calman a Scottish comedian from QI, Have I Got News For You and Mock The Week.
Charlotte Hawkins, news reader from Good Morning Britain.
Debbie McGee is a TV personality and past tennis partner of mine in Barbados for a few weeks.
Chilly Akudolu, actress and comedian from Holby City.
Jennie Peacock MBE is a Paralympic gold medallist will be the first disabled celebrity to grace the show.
Alexandra Burke, winner of X Factor 2008.
It is also thought that the Strictly on a ship will have a shake up next year, so will the new judge and new dancers takes to the seas in 2018.Share the news.

BMPCC for sale

So we at Doris Visits are changing camera because we have changed what we are doing. We used to shoot drama so this camera was ideal, we now have a team shooting a travel show, so it is the wrong camera. Whilst the key and camera are fantastic and have been used to shoot loads, the focus is finite on those lens and needs the care you shoot drama with to make sure the right plane is in focus.

On travel we would like it all in focus, and automatically and fast, so the fixed lens doc camera Canon XC15 is now preferred. The BMPCC is on Ebay from today offers from £275. Practically everything else sold over night to camera guys who wanted bits to add to their kit.
