Keeeep dancing?

well its been a week and im bored out my mind. i told you i had the bug for dancing and although its been nice relaxing and recharging in the maldives(yeah i said maldives.santas treat) i really wish i was dancing this week. I always knew i was goin to miss it and i guess i always will as there is no other feeling to working so intense all week and walking out in front of that audience and the nation. Im missing learning a new routine,and when i get back im gonna hav to find some classes or somethin to keep me goin.

just a quick thankyou to everyone who voted for us throughout the series,sorry it may have seemed like a wasted vote but im grateful for the support and walk away with my head held high knowing we topped the leaderboard consistantly and in the final and were told by headjudge Len that we were the best dancers.im just sorry to Natalie,my friends,family and everyone who supported us,as i know it will have been disappointing, I walk away from strictly a very happy man but with a big hole to fill,i love dancin and would like to keep on doin it in numerous ways in the future so watch this space. thanks again for the support and an experience ill never forget

    Wow, the Maldives…. That sounds like a nice xmas trip! :)

    As for dancing-I’m sure you’ll find a way to keep dancing! Maybe Nat need a dance partner to tour the country with? :)

    All the best for 2010 Ricky!

    “Hold the phone there sunshine”; you didn’t disappoint anyone! I’m proud to have been a WWW and so are the rest of the gang on the forum. :) Everyone knew that Chris had built up a strong following but, what surprised us (well me anyway) was the semi final. I had resolved myself to you finishing behind Ali; I cheered my voice hoarse and hurt my hands from clapping so hard when your name was called out. Your dances in the final were stunning. I’m still watching your Waltz on YouTube, it was one of the most emotional dances I’ve ever seen on SCD and for me it’s right up there with the best of the best.

    Nice to read you’re taking a well earned break as I’m sure all the work at Hollyoaks and the dancing for SCD was taking it’s toll. Hopefully you’re looking into getting that hernia seen to before you go off to the states and become a huge star, and forget about all the “little people” who thought you were absolutely wonderful on SCD! :D :D

    Take Care and have a great 2010. :)

    You and Natalie were fantastic on Strictly. I want you know lots of people think you are one of the best celeb dancers ever to appear on Strictly. You’ve got everything going for you and I know you’ll go on to great things in the future. All the hard work you and Natalie put into Strictly was much appreciated. Thank you, Ricky.

  5. Mags says:

    Have a good holiday Ricky to get over the Strictly pains.

    We loved watching you both from week 1 and you gave us so much pleasure. Please thank Natalie for us. We won’t be watching Strictly again and so have finished by watching the best dancers ever. You never disappointed us. We were just disappointed for you, but you couldn’t have had more praise from the judges and pro dancers.

    We’ll keep looking out for good news of you in the future. All the best for 2010.

    I LOVED watching you and Natalie dance and would have been happy if the show was just the two of you dancing. Maybe in the future? I can only imagine how incredible your routines would be if you were dancing full time instead of having the crazy schedule (and physical problems) you did during SCD. (But given the time you did have during the show, they were amazing.)

    We all know who the best dancer is and series 7 will always be remembered as the one the best dancer did not win.

    Happy New Year and KEEP DANCING!!

    For me Ricky you are the best dancer that strictly has ever had and you and Nat were the only reason why i couldn’t stop getting excited whenever i hear ” next up is strictly come dancing!”
    I knew that chris was going to win because there were more people with him but you were the real winner of strictly and you and nat are just amazing to watch x

    We hope you keep dancing with Nat because shes an amazing dancer teacher and a wonderful girl to be with and shell be the luckiest girl if she still gets to dance with you after scd.
    You guys have a great chemistry together and for me you should be together because you have such great partnership and wonderful personality and i think everyone else think that too x

    Good Luck Mr Whittle and Thank you for making Series 7 the best series of Strictly Come Dancing xx

    Ricky, you were AMAZING!!!!! i was sooo annoyed that you didnt win!, carry on dancing , your the best! Although youre still on our screens as Calvin in Hollyoaks, which I am very happy about as we often get to see your amazingly toned body! , I think you have a new job in dancing! You’re a brilliant dancer aswell as an actor and i wish you the very best for 2010. xx

    Ricky you were so good! This is the only series i watched throughout (because of you of course :p) and you certainly didn’t dissapoint, you have got so much talent and a smashing personality to go with it. Thanks for brightening up my saturday nights ;) and i wish you all the best for the future xxx

  13. Camilla says:

    Hi Ricky, how empty the Saturday nights are on telly now! Thank God for YouTube where we can keep watching you and Nat over and over whenever we want to… :)

    Heard about the court, which must be a both frustrating and nerv-wrecking experience even when (or especially when) it wasn’t your fault! Brr, poor you! When it’s done and dusted just get it out of the system with some serious dance training! :P (Just ask Nat, I’m sure she’ll have some seriously hard work dance routine for you to try! :) )

    Take care Ricky, I guess it’s too much to hope for that you’ll be with Natalie when SCD come to Dublin in May? I guess it’s only the pros…. Would’ve been great to get to see the two of you dance live and in such a great venue as the O2!! :) :)

    Hi Ricky, you didn’t let anyone down! You were amazing and exceeded everyone’s expectations. You and Natalie were amazing and for me the real final was the semis – you were amazing in the final and some of those lifts…wow!

    Please don’t stop dancing, we want to see you on Christmas specials, making appearances during future series and to be honest I would love to see you do some kind of dance film where you can use your acting talents too (I actually had a dream after the final that I was watching a dance film with you and Alesha…maybe it’s fate!Lol)

    Anyway, it’s a bit late but just wanted to say thank you for giving us WWW’s wonderful dances. It would be our pleasure to see you and Natalie dance together again xxx

    Hi Ricky,

    Don’t know if you want to see video clip with yourself or not. You might’ve already seen it, but if you haven’t seen the fantastic fan vid on YouTube with a medley of you and Nat in action it’s really good! Look for Ricky Whittle & Natalie Lowe FanVid… It reallt shows off what a fantastic team you are! :)

    Hope to see you dancing together soon again!
    Camilla
