Strictly fever: are these the best dances ever?

PIXIE LOTT - Strictly Come Dancing

There were tears in the Muddy Surrey house when Pixie Lott was voted off the show – and it wasn’t only Mr Muddy’s eyes that glistened!?

If Strictly Fever has hit your household then – like me – you may be casting your mind back to you favourite dances from previous years (or – also like me – some of your favourite professionals wearing tops open to their navel!).

Well it seems great minds think alike as Jo over at Muddy Norfolk has been mulling over this very thing (the tangos not the totty). Here’s what she says:

‘First I re-called a particularly memorable Sala performed by Jake Wood of Eastenders’ fame. One click on YouTube and there it was in all its death-defying glory (how does he do that bit near the end without standing on her head?). Next I replayed my favourite Charleston to Istanbul (Caroline Flack) and so it went on…’

‘Before I knew it I had a list compiled of my top 10 dances from all 13 runs and thought I’d share it with you so that you can Keeeep Dancing (call it an early Christmas present). Here goes…’
