Strictly: The Best



If last week’s appetiser has left you hungry for more, the BBC has compiled a highlights show to keep you going. More than 30 celebrities share their memories from the past 15 series – everything from the nerves and emotion to the sequins and the spray tans (now known in the Strictly camp as “having a full Jeremy” after Jeremy Vine was tricked into stripping completely naked for his first one).

Jeremy, whose enthusiastic dancing style was described by Craig Revel Horwood as like “a stork that has been struck by lightning”, talks about his Strictly “journey”, as does Ann Widdecombe, who made it all the way to Blackpool in 2010 despite consistently low scores, and Abbey Clancy, who won the first all-female final in 2013. They – as well as Judy Murray, Mark Ramprakash, Caroline Flack, Daisy Lowe and others – also look back at their most memorable routines and funniest moments before giving some advice to the class of 2018.


Some of the best-loved celebrity dancers from the past 15 series share their Strictly Come Dancing experiences. From the sequins to the spray tans, the mishaps to the meltdowns, they look back at some of the most iconic moments in Strictly history, and share hilarious and exclusive memories from their time in the ballroom.
