Strictly is back! Waltzing onto our screens over 14 years ago the show has been a hit with the public ever since.
To celebrate its return, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite Strictly moments. So, put your best foot forward and quickstep your way to the sofa…
John Sergeant’s interesting take on the paso doble
Strictly has seen its fair share of celebrities take to the dancefloor when many would’ve preferred they didn’t. John Sergeant was one of those contestants. John’s interpretation of the paso doble saw him marching across the floor, dragging partner Kristina Rihanoff behind him – an image that many will not forget in a hurry.
Russell Grant being fired out of a cannon
We thought things couldn’t get any crazier on the dancefloor, until we saw astrologer, Russell Grant being fired out of a cannon to S Club 7’s song Reach. Judge Bruno Tonioli gave the couple a 7 for “the sheer insanity of it all”.
Bruno Tonioli falling off his chair
The judge is not one to hold back when giving his feedback, telling Ann Widdecombe, “you were like a lame canary, just flapping around the floor”. He often provides contestants with examples to go along with his commentary and each series he creates a moment to remember, making him consistently one of our favourite judges. One of his most memorable moments was when he laughed so hard at fellow judge Len Goodman that he actually fell off his chair.
McFly taking to the floor as Harry Judd wins
One of the happiest Strictly scenes came when Harry Judd was announced as the winner of Series 9 in 2011. His bandmates took over the dancefloor to celebrate his win, only to be told by host Bruce Forsyth to “get away” as they were shooed off the stage.
You can catch the new series of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One. The first episode airs on Saturday 8 September.
