Strictly’s Vincent and Flavia Win Rear of the Year Awards – Flavia Cacace finally triumphed in the last series of Strictly Come Dancing when she was partnered with Olympic gymnast Louis Smith and has now continued her winning form by picking up the title of 2013 Rear of the Year.
It was a clean sweep for the Strictly team as the men’s award was picked up by her professional dance partner and former boyfriend, Vincent Simone.
Flavia is known for her killer abs and now has another string to her body beautiful bow. She was a little surprised by her new title saying that all her fellow Strictly professional friends would be laughing about the awards for her and Vincent.
It seems as though the route to a killer bottom may well be a spot of dancing as a number of previous Strictly celebrity competitors have won the award as well as Flavia and Vincent’s fellow professional Anton Du Beke who, took the male award in 2011 the year that Carol Vorderman won the female title. The list of Strictly celebrities who are also former Rear of the Year winners includes Ricky Whittle (Strictly Series 7, Rear of the Year 2010), Rachel Stevens (Strictly Series 6, Rear of the Year 2009), Claire Sweeney (Strictly Series 1, Rear of the Year 2001), Denise van Outen (Strictly Series 10, Rear of the Year 1999), Carol Smillie (Strictly Series 4, Rear of the Year 1998) and Felicity Kendal (Strictly Series 8, Rear of the Year 1981).
Despite Flavia being quite modest about winning the Rear of the Year award the same cannot be said about Vincent’s reaction to winning the title. He said of his win: ‘It’s about time. I haven’t seen any other men with amazing rears like me, so I don’t have much competition. My bum is eternal, it will last forever.’
Although the pair had very differing comments to make about their win they were united in their joint belief that it is all their dancing that has given them both such pert award-winning rears.
If you can’t wait until the next series of Strictly starts in the autumn to see their award-winning rears then you can catch up with Flavia and Vincent on their Midnight Tango show which is touring the UK until August.
