Louise took part in Series 14 and was partnered with perennial finalist Kevin Clifton returning for his fourth series.  A strong start to the series, Louise finished top of the combined week 1 and 2 leaderboard, but nerves and a lack of confidence seemed to hold her back a little each week.  That was all to change in week 7, and her Argentine Tango was a strong, passionate performance, and saw Louise get her first 10s of the series - three of them!  There was no holding her back after this, and the 10s rolled in, for all styles of dance, and in week 10, Louise & Kevin also won the Cha cha challenge where all couples danced at the same time.  With the competition getting stronger and stronger, Louise always maintained a high place on the leaderboard until the semi-final when she found herself in joint bottom place, but her popularity with the public saw her through to the final, helping Kevin make Strictly history as the first pro dancer to make it to four finals.  Plenty of improvement in her cha cha cha, followed by a lovely show dance telling the story of her time on the programme were followed by a fantastic reprisal of their Argentine tango which the judges awarded the perfect 40, and Louise & Kevin finished the competition in joint 2nd place.
