Evening glitterbunnies, and a very merry Christmas to one and all. Hopefully you’re having a fabulous Christmas Day, but just in case you’re in need some me-time, we’re here to add some bonus sparkle. This year’s Strictly Christmas Special features former stars Robbie Savage, Katie Derham, Jeremy Vine, Kimberley Walsh, Judy Murray and Colin Jackson – each performing a routine inspired by what they love most about Christmas.
So in the end it was Joe and Katya who lifted the Glitterball on Saturday, after one of the hardest-fought Strictly finals in years. It brought the curtain down on the 15th series of Strictly Come Dancing, with impressive viewer numbers and a format that doesn’t seem to age. This year was no exception: the series was packed with showstopping dancing and gave us plenty of laughs along the way. I’ve whittled it down to my five favourite moments, but feel free to add yours in the comment box below.
8.39am EST08:39Evening all, and a very warm welcome to the 2017 Strictly Come Dancing Grand Final liveblog! After three months of dance, drama, debating and tapping away at this keyboard like a demon, we’ve whittled down our original 15 couples to a final four – Alexandra and Gorka, Debbie and Giovannia, Gemma and Aljaz and Joe and Katyal. All that’s keeping one of them from holding aloft the Strictly glitterball is three final dances.
@scouserachel bet there's a family tree on the wall, with tonnes of dotted lines to dodgy relatives/friends of friends of friends/Hollywood gropers. She MUST have been in the same room as one of them at some point.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
