ULTIMATE STRICTLY Advent Calendar 2018

Sunday 23rd December 2018

When picking my one of my favourite samba routines, I couldn’t look any further that this beauty from series 14, when Danny Mac and Oti Mabuse danced to Magalenha in week 10 and made Strictly history by scoring the first, and currently the only, perfect 40 for a samba. There’s not much else to say as the dance speaks for itself - brilliant!

For my festive choice today, I’ve picked this quickstep from John Barrowman and his professional partner Kristina Rihanoff. It was a bright, fun routine that opened the show on the 2010 Christmas Special, and this clip not only shows the dance, but also has a Brucie Bonus at the end of the video!
