I don't usually take much interest in football, especially during the Olympics, but when I read on Twitter that none of the Welsh players had sung God Save the Queen at the beginning Great Britain's first male football match I suddenly wanted to tune in (and have even watched the beginning over again). Welsh nationalism has always been somewhat of a taboo subject, especially during prime time on the BBC, but here it was being discussed at half time of an Olympic match by Gary Lineker and Robbie Savage. How times have changed? Or have they?
It is my belief, based upon the hypothesis that history repeats itself, that the outcome of any reality TV phenomena can be predicted scientifically. Allow me to demonstrate my theory by using a methodology that studies past form, extrapolates historic Dancing data, and applies identified trends to this year's cast, in order to predict the winner of Strictly Come Dancing 2011.
