Tonight is my main telly night. It’s the one I wait for every year – the launch of Strictly Come Dancing!

Call me sad (I can sort of take it) but Strictly signifies that summer is over, and autumn has begun.

I can officially stay inside more, wear big woolly jumpers, Google when the clocks go back and think about pumpkins, sparklers and even… maybe… mince pies.

A step too far?

Would I love Strictly as much if it was aired in April instead? I think I’d still love it, but it wouldn’t be the same. There’d be no Halloween special to start!

So, that’s it. Strictly is on in half an hour so I better refresh my drink and bag the best seat in the house.

A wild Saturday night indeed – but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
