Russell Grant reveals the Starsign elements between each of the Strictly couples. Which couple are your favourite..?
RUSSELL GRANT, Aquarius and FLAVIA CACACE, Pisces
As an Aquarian everything should go well with Strictly Come Dancing’s star dancer Piscean Flavia, but what makes the partnership so truly magical is that the Venus in my chart is in Pisces, Flavia’s own Sunsign. Venus is the Goddess of the arts and the body so we have a strong musicality and lyrical link that’s not at all fiery but far more fun and full of laughs.
NANCY DELL’OLIO, Virgo and ANTON DU BEKE, Cancer
Cancerians are very sensitive, kind, caring – and forgiving. Virgo can be the unpredictable, eccentric sign and that’s whatNancyis. It is a wonderful performing partnership; Anton will letNancybeNancyand the audience will love her for it. Anton will be patient with her and she will respond to that. She likes a partner who knows how to do the right thing.
LULU, Scorpio and BRENDAN COLE, Taurus
This could be the passion packed partnership that could bring us all a few surprises – they are opposites, but as so often happens opposites can cause a fiery furore of flaming intensity. They are a red hot combo of torrid treats and they are working well together to concoct a cocktail that could intoxicate us all with its potency.
RORY BREMNER, Aries and ERIN BOAG, Pisces
Having watchedErinand Rory practise and they are made for each other. They are a classic example of adjacent Sunsigns working together in unison to produce the perfect partnership. I know she has planets in Aries and he has some planets in Pisces. They go together like peaches and cream and can work hand in glove to produce fantastic results.
JASON DONOVAN, Gemini and KRISTINA RIHANOFF, Virgo
Kristina is at the end of Virgo and nearly into Libra. Kristina and Jason have got a very good and positive approach to their work. This productive, purposeful attitude matches and mirrors each other perfectly. They both have the same intention to win. But will Kristina be both fiery and passionate?
ROBBIE SAVAGE, Libra and OLA JORDAN, Libra
This Libran balance is absolutely perfect. When both people share the same sign they can either make a perfect match or throw each other completely off balance. This twosome works well. Ola will see in him that softness of Libra which isn’t the Robbie everyone knows. He is a sensitive, kind man. This pair will bring out the best in each other.
CHELSEE HEALEY, Leo and PASHA KOVALEV, Capricorn
Leo Chelsee and Capricorn Pasha will show how a steadfast and stoical partnership can work harmoniously and happily together. Like brother and sister they will want to do their very best for each other in a creative, imaginative and even dramatic style that could take our breath away so we can expect some surprises from Pasha and Chelsee.
EDWINA CURRIE, Libra and VINCENT SIMONE, Pisces
There is more than a little Virgo in Edwina’s chart that makes her more down to earth. Practical, pragmatic Edwina will produce surprising results with the flamboyant Vincent – they have a certain closeness and mutual empathy when they dance, it’s unbelievable! It is possibly one of the most incongruous relationships one might guess at. It could very easily have gone either way but it’s gone the right way.
DAN LOBB, Capricorn and KATYA VIRSHILAS, Virgo
Katya and Dan are two earth signs. He has a great sense of humour, he is a delight to all who know him well and those who don’t know him so well will see a side to him they didn’t know or expect. They will be a classic example of elements getting on. It works. Virgo and Capricorn is a classic combination. Let’s sit back and watch them in action. You will be surprised.
AUDLEY HARRISON, Scorpio and NATALIE LOWE, Leo
What a fascinating twosome Natalie and Audley will make. This combination is intriguing and interesting. Leo is immovable, but so is Scorpio. Audley has a lot of planets in Sagittarius and Sagittarius is fire – and Natalie is fire too. She could forge and form him in the fires of her true talent, but he will know his own worth and will want to stand firm like a pillar of fire.
HOLLY VALANCE, Taurus and ARTEM CHIGVINTSEV, Gemini
Taurus and Gemini are adjacent signs in the zodiac so this could turn out to be an unusual combination. Taurean, Holly will be really into the music and the movement because she is ruled by Venus and she is the raunchy star. As they are from neighbouring signs, this can either be a really strong connection or not at all. It will be fascinating to see how this partnership develops on the dance floor.
HARRY JUDD, Capricorn and ALIONA VILANI, Taurus
Here we have a classic example of two Earth signs together. Taurean Aliona is a very good teacher and will take Harry in hand in such a kind way. Capricorn Harry is a very serious young man and wants to do this properly. This twosome are going to be the ones to watch. It is one of those matches that can work wonders. They are a great combination that are going to be hard to beat.
ALEX JONES, Pisces and JAMES JORDAN, Aries
Alex is a Pisces, one of the signs of dance. Pisceans are kind, caring and compassionate and Alex will want to do all she can to make this dance partnership a success for both of them. Aries are very protective and are very macho – their sign is ruled by Mars and is a very male sign. Alex has a tough schedule with The One Show, but Aries can whip Pisces into shape!
ANITA DOBSON, Taurus and ROBIN WINDSOR, Virgo
I have known Anita a long time. She is a wonderful Taurean and so her ruling planet is Venus, the Goddess of the arts. This is a mellifluous, melodious match made in heaven. Anita will love every moment of the “Strictly” season and Robin is so sensitive he is a perfect partner for her. Anita and Robin have to be one of my favourite combinations in the contest
