HOLLY VALANCE

Actor/Singer

Australian born Holly Valance started her career as an teen on the soap opera Neighbours playing Flick Scully for three years before leaving the series to pursue a music career. She had a number one UK single with the song "Kiss Kiss" and released two albums, and has since returned to her acting career with guest roles on a variety of television series. She took a starring role in the Australian film Big Mamma's Boy in 2011, and has recently been named as the face of Foster's Gold lager.

Holly is dancing in the ninth series of Strictly Come Dancing and is dancing with reigning champion, Artem Chigvintsev. Due to injury, Artem is unable to dance in Week 7 of the competition, so Brendan Cole will stand in for him and dance with Holly. Artem will, however, choreograph the routine for them this week.
