Strictly Come Dancing fans not convinced by week two song choices for dance routines

Tom Jones, Frank Sinatra and The Monkees will all soundtrack dances

The songs and dance routines for the second week of Strictly Come Dancing 2020 have been revealed.

Tunes from the likes of Tom Jones, Frank Sinatra and The Monkees will all soundtrack the upcoming dances.

But while dozens of fans immediately said how excited they are for Saturday’s episode, not everyone was blown away by the selection of songs.

“A lot of very modern tracks here, not sure they’re the best,” one commenter cautioned.

Viewers wonder about Strictly Halloween special

However, most social media commenters were excited about the second week of Strictly – even as they expressed their disappointment at the lack of Halloween special.

One person, adding crying emojis to their comment, asked on Instagram: “What about Halloween week?”

Someone else remarked: “Shame you aren’t doing the Halloween special this year, it will be missed.”

A third person concurred on Facebook: “Gutted. Halloween is my absolute favourite. Hope they will still be able to do Movies and Musicals weeks.”

And yet another upset fan wrote on Insta: “Wait, hold up – you’re telling me they’re not doing Halloween-themed dancers when Saturday is literally Halloween?!”
