Strictly Come Dancing

There's a lot of pressure for the celebrities who sign up for Strictly Come Dancing but sometimes it’s the dance floor underdogs who win over the people’s vote. We take a look at the ‘disaster’ superstars of yesteryear.

Russell Grant, 2011

If getting into the Strictly spirit won contestants prizes, Russell Grant would be champion. The image of the astrologer shooting out of a rocket and onto the dance floor to meet professional dancer Flavia Cacace is etched in our Strictly memories. Back in the public eye and lighter than he’d been in a long while, Russell later claimed the show gave him a new lease of life.

​John Sergeant, 2008

Renowned for his political interviews, John Sergeant was less than light-footed when he took to the dance floor with professional dancer Kristina Rihanoff.

His Paso Doble was a feat of feet but the public clamoured for more until he withdrew himself from the competition after advancing to week nine, lest he win!

​Ann Widdecombe, 2010

Strictly veteran Anton du Beke has steered more than his fair share of leading ladies, but when Ann Widdecombe stepped out to tango, it was a question of who’s leading who?

Judge Craig Revel Horwood spared no blushes with his reaction – ‘OMG!’ A force to be reckoned with, Ann advanced to week 10.

​Ed Balls, 2016

One of the defining moments of Strictly history, Ed Balls wowed the nation with his give-it-all-you’ve-got Gangnam Style salsa. Judge Bruno Tonioli described the performance as, “The best worst dance I’ve seen”.

The show-stopper was enough to take Ed to the Blackpool Tower ballroom the following week.
