Journalist, presenter and radio DJ Jeremy Vine began his career as a political reporter for the BBC, appearing on Today, Newsnight and The Politics Show. These days he fronts a daily radio show on BBC2 where his often opinionated guests discuss topical issues.
How did he do on Strictly?
Vine competed in the thirteenth series of the show, where he was paired with professional dancer Karen Clifton. The pair finished in ninth place.
In the fourth week of the contest, Vine’s Jive to Bobby Darin’s Splish Splash saw Craig Revel Horwood compare him to “a stork that had been struck by lightning”. Hopefully Vine will do better in his next dance floor outing!
