Strictly Come Dancing Has Given Us So Much This Year and No, We Don’t Just Mean Nicky

The dance competition has come to an end but we won't be forgetting these moments anytime soon...

This year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing has been one of the best. In fact, it’s been so good that it’s nabbed a few million X Factor fans.

But you don’t have to take our word for it, here are some of the many highlights…

Lisa’s splits

We’ll admit the actress surprised us in a number of ways but we were most taken aback by her flexibility!

Michael’s surprise ballroom skills

The cricketer just didn’t seem to have any sense of time or rhythm in the salsa so when he came out and did this for the ballroom dances, our jaws dropped.

Denise and James getting the first 10 of series

Wembley was a fitting setting for the first ten of the series, and Denise and James were a fitting couple.

Kimberley and Pasha getting first 40 of series

The Girls Aloud singer is one of the contestants who really improved as the series went on. And she also bagged the first perfect score of this year’s show.

Bruce’s Gangnam Style

We weren’t quite sure where to look when the television legend started doing the dance. But then again, we weren’t quite sure that we could fight the urge to join in.

Lisa getting lost on floor during salsa

We don’t know whether it was meant to be funny or not but this moment will always have a special place in our hearts.

Dani and Vincent’s threesome with Anton

This pint-sized couple pulled out all the stops for their Halloween performance. Plus, Anton is one of our favourites.

Artem’s topless dance

What woman wouldn’t remember this? We’d be perfectly happy if the BBC had just put this on repeat for the last however many weeks!

Nicky and Karen’s Charleston

We just had to include our hip-shaking Westlife boy and his dance partner. If you ask us, they should have been in the final!

Louis and Flavia’s showdance

It was undoubtedly the dance of the entire series and probably was the performance that won them the Glitterball trophy. Also, Louis topless is pretty nice to look at!
