Strictly Support Group – Severrnth Heaven!

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past 24 hours, you’ve probably realised that a Strictly Superfan (Bella) turned seven yesterday!


To celebrate her reaching Len’s favourite age (she got a birthday card with this picture on) but she also decided to reveal her seven favourite Strictly moments.

Here are her top seven #Strictly dances of all time (bear in mind she has only watched the show since 2013):

Earlier today she also asked you to tell her your top 7 Strictly Moments! Here are all your suggestions in one handy playlist:

Ultimate Strictly Challenge – The Final!

*Grabs a Tissue* Tonight could get a little emotional. We’re now in the final week of our Ultimate Strictly Challenge. It has been a very fun 9 weeks, where we have seen perfect scoring dances battle against dances which were equally brilliant, but didn’t quite reach that perfect score.

Thank you for all your votes over the past 9 weeks. Tonight we’re putting our winning perfect scoring dances against the top 10 from your People’s choice!


 All you need to do is watch the playlist below to see which dances have made it into our final, and then click on the poll below to vote for your favourites.

You can vote once a day for up to 3 dances. Voting will then remain open until 6pm next Sunday when we’ll freeze the votes before revealing the winner and the dance that has been the best dance on Strictly ever in your opinion. They may even be awarded a trophy even better than the glitterball… an edible glitterball:
