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!
The 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.
