Sarah Tumble book


We all know that Tumble is proving to be a really emotional experience for Sarah. We were always going to be doing her a book about her time on Tumble but we thought it would be nice if fans sent in messages about how proud they are of what shes achieved, we know Sarah would love to read all your messages. So we are hoping loads of you will send us messages, we want  Sarah to know how loved she is by the fans and how we’ve all got her back and are willing to help her achieve her dreams.

If you want to send a message in for the book please send it to sarahhardingaddicts@hotmail.co.uk Just a simple message explaining how well you think Sarah has done and things like that, you can also include any graphics you may have made from the various Tumble pictures we’ve had. The closing date for getting your messages in 15th October, so it gives you a few weeks. Hope everyone will submit a message even if its only small.

Thank you guys.


Sarah Harding on Lorraine

Sarah was on Lorraine today chatting about Tumble and her solo career.

Sarah Harding – International fan voting


As you guys all know Sarah is through to the final on Tumble.

We still don’t know how long we’re going to get to vote, so really don’t know how many votes we’ll be able to get done in the time. We’re assuming that since each celebrity is doing 2 routines this week that after they have all performed once that the voting lines might open up, this will be good because it should give us 20 – 30 mins to vote. We managed to get between the 4 of us for ourselves and the international fans over 1100 votes.

We can’t stress how important it is that we all vote as much as we can or as much as you can afford, please don’t get into trouble for voting. Voting is what makes a difference so every vote helps.

According to the BBC website voting from a landline is 15p  and 15p from a mobile.


We think whats the best is if you want to vote for Sarah (international fans only) if you could let us know and how much you want to spend that would be a great help. We can then work out roughly how many votes we need to do. We have got someone else on stand by to help out if we need to (thank you Sam @BrilliantlyEvil and @Smudge1208). Both myself and Claire will have 2 mobiles each on the go at the same time that way we can get more votes done in the time space.

If you are interested in voting for Sarah then please let us know on twitter or email us sarahhardingaddicts@hotmail.co.uk Also if you could let us know as soon as possible so we can get things sorted.

We want to try and get as many votes in for Sarah as we can from international fans but it’ll be on a first come first served basis, as obviously we’ll want to get the votes in for us aswell. We know that voting is what is most important to Sarah hence why we want to do this.

Not sure if any of the UK fans will be going to the studio to watch weeks 5 and 6 but please bear in mind that you can’t use your phones whilst the show is being recorded as they interfere with the recording of the show.

Also you can register online and get 3 free votes but its only open to the UK so if your an international fan and want to do it this way please contact either DanniiShelleyxx AlexLeighAloud or NicciLuvsNadine and they’ll register your email address and do the votes for you.

We can’t stress this enough – Sarah will need all the votes she can get, so lets do this for her guys.

How Tumble works


How the Show Works

Tumble is a new six week elimination contest for BBC1 in which 10 brave celebrities will learn and perform gymnastic and aerial disciplines, for the chance to win the coveted title of Tumble Champion 2014.

Each celebrity has been paired with a professional performer of the opposite sex. Each pairing has its own British Gymnastics approved coach (minimum level 3).

Celebrities will be asked to take part in disciplines and to perform to music and themes as chosen by production.

At the end of Show 6, the winner will be announced.

Show One

In Show 1 (Saturday 9th August 2014) all 10 celebrities will perform 1 of 2 possible disciplines – Acrobatic Floor or Aerial Hoop. They will receive comments and scores from the judges (see judging section below.) The scores from each judge will be added to create the overall score for each celebrity. No-one is eliminated at the end of this show.

Show Two

In Show 2, (Saturday 16th August ) all 10 celebrities will perform whichever discipline they did not perform in Show 1 and once again receive comments and scores from the judges as in show 1 above.

The scores received by each celebrity in show 1 and show 2 will be compared to establish their Personal Best- which will be the higher of the two scores. The Personal Best will then be used as their score for the end of show 2 leaderboard.

The two celebrities with the lowest scores on the leaderboard at the end of show 2 are the “bottom two”. They must now face ‘The Vault’ (see elimination section below). One celebrity will be eliminated after the vault performance.


There are four members of the judging panel, chosen for their expertise in their related gymnastic and aerial fields; Nadia Comaneci (Head Judge), Craig Heap, Louis Smith, Sebastien Stella.

After each celebrity has completed their discipline, the judges will give their expert opinions. Celebrities will be judged on both their technique in that particular discipline and their performance.

Celebrities will then receive a score out of 10 from each judge, giving them an overall score out of 40. The scores increase in 0.5 points.

There is no audience voting until Show 5.


In the event of a tie in personal best score between three or more celebrities at the bottom of the show 2 leaderboard, we will use the total combined score from show 1 and 2 for each of the tied contestants. The two celebrities with the lowest combined score will be in the “Bottom Two”

In the unlikely event that there is still a tie when the combined scores are added up then we will use the total score across both disciplines awarded by Nadia Comaneci for the tied celebrities and the two celebrities at that stage with the lowest combined score will face ‘The Vault’.

If there is still a tie then Head Judge Nadia Comaneci will decide which of the tied celebrities at the bottom of the table will face ‘The Vault’.


As explained above, there will be no elimination at the end of Show 1. In Show 2 one celebrity will be eliminated at the end of the show.

The celebrities who are not in the “Bottom Two” at the end of Show 2 are safe and will proceed to the following week. The two celebrities who find themselves at the bottom of the Show 2 leaderboard must take on the ‘Vault’ for the chance to stay in the contest.

Head Judge Nadia Comaneci will use her expertise to decide which celebrity has performed the best in the Vault and will therefore be through to the following week. The remaining celebrity therefore leaves Tumble.

It is the Head Judge’s decision alone that decides the celebrities’ fate. She will only take into account the performance on the vault and not any performances from earlier in the show or the contest.

The Tumble medics and physio are on hand throughout the show to ensure all performers are fit to compete.

The format may be altered by Production throughout the series.

Thanks to the BBC Tumble page for the above information.
