NATASHA KAPLINSKY

Newsreader

At the time she appeared on Strictly Come Dancing, Natasha was co-presenting the BBC Breakfast programme, but has also anchored the BBC Six O'Clock evening news. In 2007, she reportedly became the first newsreader to earn £1m, when she moved to channel Five.

Natasha danced with Brendan Cole on the first series of Strictly Come Dancing, and was the first celebrity in the history of the show to receive a perfect 10, which she received for the Samba in week five. The couple made it to the final of the competition and were crowned the first ever champions of the show.
