Tonight we gave you a very late brunch and decided to have a chat about Breakfast Presenters who’ve appeared on our favourite Glittery Show. This was all in honour of Strictly Finalist Susanna Reid’s new show Good Morning Britain.
There have been lots of Breakfast Presenters who’ve competed on the show over the last 11 series. Some have impressed whilst others have entertained. Here’s a summary of those who have appeared and what they are most remembered for:
Series 1 Winner Natasha Kaplinsky
Natasha’s natural grace and elegance in the ballroom routines made her memorable and the well deserved winner of series 1.
Fiona Phillips from Series 3
She may not have been a natural dancer and had to be propped up by Brendan, but she certainly entertained and tried.
Bill Turnbull from Series 3
Who can forget Bill with his bees, Wycombe Wanderers, foot problems and “married couple” style relationship with his partner Karen? We loved Bill. He was a gentleman who had he not suffered a foot injury could have won the series with his charm and dance ability.
Kate Garraway from Series 5
She entertained, even though not the best dancer. We remembered her Samba for sheer fun and entertainment value. She started a theory GMTV presenters couldn’t dance.
Andrew Castle – Series 6
Could dance, but seem to only remember one of his dances for Ola’s catsuit.
Chris Hollins – series 7 winner
His Charleston still goes down in Strictly History as one of the cutest and one of our favourite ever routines. Team Cola had charm and charisma making them a popular couple and Chris broke the curse of Breakfast Presenters, proving they can dance.
Richard Arnold – Series 10
He entertained us with all his performances and had good natural rhythm. We felt for him though as nerves took over and some of his routines didn’t go as planned. His enthusiasm and entertainment value made him a memorable contestant and one we loved in series 10. Who could forget his Samba at Wembley?
Susanna Reid – Series 11 Finalist
Susanna’s enthusiasm, improvement, love of dancing and ability to multi-task (be a mum, commuting to and from Salford, presenting Breakfast and dance training) quite frankly made her superwoman. Her and Kevin were very well matched and their Paso is one of the most memorable moments of Strictly history ever. Her performances were brilliant and her love of dancing shone through in every show.
That’s what we thought, however It wouldn’t be the strictly support group if we didn’t have a chat. We started by asking which breakfast presenter competing in strictly has been the most memorable for you? Here are some of our favourite tweets of the night.
We then moved on to asking who you thought had been the best Breakfast a Presenter contestant on Strictly?
There have also been breakfast presenter contestants who’ve entertained but might not have been the best dancers. Here are your tweets of who you thought this statement summed up perfectly.
For our final question, we asked which Breakfast Presenters you’d like to see appearing on Strictly and who you’d pair them with. Here are your tweets:
And that ended our chat. We hope you enjoyed it. We’re back on Wednesday at 8pm for a quiz. Join us then to take part.
