As a treat for 'er indoors, we saw Flashdance at Sheffield Lyceum yesterday. I have never seen the movie, and had no idea what was about to hit me. To fit in, I just went. What a waste of £40 a ticket.

The audience was over 90% women. The lead dancer (Joanne Clifton who used to be on Strictly Come Dancing) was, to put it diplomatically, "out of condition". I know that we are not allowed to call women overweight anymore. We can say boxers are overweight. We can say that footballers are overweight.

I know virtually nothing about dancing. Chubby Joanne was totally eclipsed in the singing and dancing departments by the anonymous folk behind her. She did smile a lot though.

DO NOT GO.

If your missus wants to see Flashdance with you, buy her the DVD and a bottle of gin for yourself instead.
