ULTIMATE STRICTLY Advent Calendar 2018

MOnday 24th December 2018

It’s the last entry in the advent calendar today, so I’ve picked one of my favourite ever Christmas Special dances to finish - it’s Kelly Brook performing a jive with Brian Fortuna way back in 2008. Dancing to ‘Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree’ it’s got a bit of everything … a ballroom opening, a Bucks Fizz style skirt reveal with a cracking jive to follow, and I just love it!

We definitely need to get in the party mood since it’s now Christmas Eve and what better way than with this fabulous salsa from John Barnes and Nicole Cutler. No theme, no props, no frills, just a classic salsa with brilliant timing and great choreography. A triumph.

And just one final thing … someone was hoping that I’d be including Pamela Stephenson stumbling through her salsa back in series eight. Unfortunately, the BBC don’t have full videos available from that series, and the It Takes Two clip is only available on the BBC website, which requires Flash, so might not be viewable by everyone, but if you can play it, the link is here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00bk68f

So, that’s it for the Advent Calendar. I hope you’ve enjoyed wandering down memory lane with me, and it just remains for me to wish you all a very merry Christmas … hope you have a happy and peaceful holiday and enjoy the Christmas Special, our last Strictly Come Dancing of the year.
