South Africa – pah – let’s concentrate on the real midwinter battle – Chris Hollins v Ricky Whittle.

When The Cat got knocked out in week 9, the inevitability that a cricketer always wins Strictly Come Dancing seemed to have been proved wrong.

But the best kept secret was that Chris Hollins is a cricketer – and tonight his destiny was fulfilled.

I rest my case.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. Thanks Miriam.
    I had to justiify to Significant Other why I wanted the dancing hobbit to win, rather than the man who actually had talent.

    I sent this to KC on the night of the final… now I find that Cricinfo have been so shallow as to amend the page to actually mention the Strictly win.

  2. It’s ok Jo Fitz, I saw it before Cricinfo’s shallow amendment.

    I enjoyed the dancing hobbit but the highlight of the final for me was probably Ola’s sparkly jeggings for the show dance.
