The 10 Hottest Strictly Competitors

Hottest Strictly Competitors – just before Christmas the BBC released a list of the top scoring Strictly Come Dancing competitors since the series started in 2004. With this in mind we thought it would be a good idea to have a list of the hottest looking Strictly competitors to go with it.

A number of those chosen have been picked according to the hits on our site so sorry if we have missed out one of your favourites. We guess you just didn’t look at their articles often enough!

Natasha Kaplinsky

Former BBC newsreader, Sky News presenter and winner of the first series of StrictlyThe hottest looking woman in the first series of Strictly in 2004 was newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky. Ten years ago things were very different for both Natasha and her professional partner Brendan Cole who were considered to have got rather close during their time training together. Some things never change in Strictlyland as this sort of rumour has been the stuff of Strictly gossip in every series since.

Natasha was 31-years old at the time of her Strictly triumph and was co-hosting the BBC’s Breakfast programme whilst she was on the show. Although she looked like she was enjoying herself Natasha revealed some years after her time on the show that she had been forced to take part by the BBC.

She did make a return to the show in the second series but in a different role when she stood in as a co-presenter whilst Tess Daly was on maternity leave.

To see how far the show has come since it first started winner Natasha’s average score throughout the first series was just 33 points which for the last few years would not even have been enough to have got her to the final stages of the competition. The newsreader has admitted herself that she would not have got too far in the competition if she was involved in any of the more recent series of Strictly.

Unusually Natasha’s highest scoring dance came in week 5 when she scored 37 points for her samba. Her top scoring dance in week 8’s final was her quickstep which the judges awarded 36 points.

Strictly Launch Show And FIrst Strictly Romance of 2014 Is Revealed – tonight saw the launch of the 12th series of Strictly Come Dancing with the new series pairings revealed as we also learnt today of a new Strictly romance.

The launch show saw some new professionals make their debut as well as the first sighting of this year’s crop of Strictly celebrities. It also was the beginning of the Tess Daly/Claudia Winkleman co-hosting partnership and saw Sir Bruce Forsyth take to the Strictly stage to hand over his presenting mantle to Claudia.

Almost of more interest than all of this though was the news that Rachel Riley and her Strictly dance partner Pasha Kovalev have announced that they have been an item for some while.

Pasha confirmed the news to the UK media today. Although there is no suggestion that they were dating at the time of the show they did keep in touch after their time dancing together and earlier this year love blossomed.

Rachel announced the end of her marriage to Jamie Gilbert in November last year, just a few days after she and Pasha were voted off the show. Read the rest of this entry »

Countdown’s Rachel Has Had Her Last Waltz With Husband Jamie – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 29 November 2013

Rachel Riley on Countdown - tight red dress, cleavage and nipples showing through fabricCountdown’s Rachel Has Had Her Last Waltz With Husband Jamie – it was revealed today that Countdown stunner Rachel Riley has split from Jamie, her husband of just 16 months.

As reported here Rachel and partner Pasha Kovalev left the Strictly Come Dancing competition a few weeks ago after losing out in a dance-off with Rachel’s best Strictly friend Abbey Clancy.

It is no wonder that there is no time for a home life for Rachel as over the last few months she has been working on C4’s words and numbers programme Countdown, which goes out every weekday, since this summer she has also been co-hosting the technology programme The Gadget Show which is broadcast weekly and on top of all that she had been spending every other waking moment rehearsing for Strictly.

Rachel and husband Jamie Gilbert got married last August after meeting at Oxford University a number of years ago. They had previously split up for a while in 2009 but Jamie then proposed on Rachel’s 25th birthday.

Although earlier reports carried no official confirmation of the couple’s split, a report in the Mirror advised that a spokeswoman for Rachel had now confirmed the couple are no longer together. Read the rest of this entry »

Rachel Riley Leaves Strictly – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 03 November 2013

Rachel Riley voted off Strictly Come Dancing 2013Rachel Riley Leaves Strictly – after a dance-off that showed that the Strictly public vote is not about who is the best dancer, it was Countdown’s Rachel Riley who had to leave the show.

Rachel clearly knew that her time was up as she was placed against her friend Abbey Clancy in the dance-off and even though Rachel had improved her dancing over the last week or two her scores have never matched those of Abbey.

The judges could not keep their surprise and annoyance to themselves as even head judge Len Goodman said to Abbey when she was announced as the first person in the dance-off ‘I can’t quite believe that the audience at home have put you in this position.’

Abbey went first in the dance-off and if anything she produced an even better performance of the rumba that got a total score of 34 points from the judges with Bruno saying on Saturday night that the model was ‘here to stay.’

Rachel looked resigned to her fate but said to Strictly host Tess Daly that she was determined to enjoy what was probably going to be her last dance on the show. Read the rest of this entry »

Strictly Week 6, Is Natalie Pulling Away? – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 02 November 2013

Ben Cohen with bare chest touches Kristina Rihanoff's boobs on StrictlyStrictly Week 6, Is Natalie Pulling Away? – as the series hits its 6th week one celebrity looks to be pulling away from the rest of the pack.

This week was a special Halloween themed show and amongst all the pumpkins, vampires, werewolves and cobwebs were some very good performances this week. And there was also Hairy Biker Dave Myers!

The stand out performance as far as the judges were concerned was Natalie Gumede and Artem’s  Viennese Waltz which they danced to Natalie Duncan’s beautiful track Devil In Me. They looked fluent and like they had been dancing together for years rather than weeks and their dance got the first sighting of the 10 paddle from the judges. With both Bruno and Darcey scoring the dance maximum points their total of 38 was not only their highest score and the highest score of the week but also the best of the series so far.

Other celebrities also achieved their top scores with Ben Cohen, Rachel Riley and Patrick Hamilton pulling out their best dances so far in the series.

Patrick Hamilton was first on this week, dancing the Quickstep to Man With The Hex by Atomic Fireballs and despite still being troubled by an injury to his wrist he managed to score a total of 34 points from the judges with Len even awarding the dance a 9.

Ben Cohen and Kristina Rihanoff pulled out the big guns this week as both showed off plenty of their very impressive bodies with a lot of chest on view from Kristina and all of Ben’s on view as he performed the Paso Doble without a top. They were dancing to Supermassive Black Hole by Muse and all of the judges agreed that it was a very masculine and powerful performance from Ben with Len describing their dance as an explosion. There was no talk of a lack of chemistry between this pair and if you look at the photo of Ben and Kristina you can see why! Read the rest of this entry »

Rachel In Bottom 2 In Strictly Week 5 – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 26 October 2013

Fierce Strictly Rachel

Fierce Strictly Rachel

Rachel In Bottom 2 In Strictly Week 5 – tonight we have reached Week 5 in our journey to find the Strictly 2013 Champion and as ever it was an evening of mixed fortunes for our celebrity dancers.

The first 2 dancers tonight certainly have nothing to worry about as Natalie started the show off with a great version of the samba, which they danced to the Gypsy Kings song Bomboleo, a good choice of song for this dance.

The judges were impressed with Natalie and Artem as they have been every week since the series started. They scored her an impressive 35 points and were struggling to find much wrong in Natalie’s performance apart from wanting a little more bounce.

Next up was Abbey and her partner Aljaz who danced a Foxtrot to the Olly Murs song Dear Darlin’. Abbey looked lovely in a beautiful gown and they too got a score of 35 points from the judges.

This was where things began to change as the next celebrity out  on the dancefloor was Hairy Biker Dave Myers and his dance partner Karen Hauer who were both wearing somewhat strange outfits with Karen’s homage to Carmen Miranda’s headgear probably edging Dave’s maracas in terms of bad taste. After a predictably stompy dance the pair managed just 17 points from the judges. Read the rest of this entry »
