Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Past winners
From debut star Natasha Kaplinsky to last year's champion Louis Smith
The grand sparkling final of Strictly Come Dancing 2013 is nearing ever closer.
So, while celebrity competitors are busy perfecting their Jives, Sambas, Foxtrots and more ahead of Saturday's semi-final, it is time to take a nostalgic look back through those iconic red show curtains.
From newsreader Natasha Kaplinksy becoming the first contestant to lift the much sought-after Glitter Ball Trophy in 2004 to Olympic gymnast Louis Smith's triumphant season last year, who has cemented their place in Strictly champion history?
Last Sunday saw Hollyoaks' Ashley Tayor Dawson and his dance partner Ola Jordan voted off the show, after the pair lost out to Casualty actor Patrick Robinson and his Rumba to Bruno Mars' "When I Was Your Man".
Model Abbey Clancy, former Coronation Street actress Natalie Gumede, pop star Sophie Ellis-Bextor and BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid will join Robinson for the semi-final this weekend.
