Australia[edit]

Lowe is a four-time Australian Dance Champion. She joined Seven Network's Dancing with the Stars in 2004, partnering athlete Matt Shirvington. She then partnered Ian Roberts, and won the 2006 series with AFL footballer Anthony Koutoufides. Lowe then partnered Home and Away actor Tim Campbell, and, in 2008, partnered boxer Danny Green.

United Kingdom[edit]

Lowe competed as a new professional dancer on the seventh series of the original British version of Strictly Come Dancing, partnering Hollyoaks' Ricky Whittle. Lowe joined the show with fellow newcomers Aliona Vilani and Katya Virshilas. After their first dance together in front of the judges, Lowe and Whittle were described by head judge Len Goodman as maybe the most formidable couple Strictly Come Dancing had ever seen. Even so, Lowe and Whittle finished second. She competed in the 2010 series partnering Scott Maslen. Her professional partner in this series was New Zealand professional Brendan Cole. Lowe and Maslen were eliminated in the semi-final of the competition along with Gavin Henson and Katya Virshilas.

On 15 June 2011 the BBC announced that Lowe would again be one of the professional dancers in the 2011 series of Strictly Come Dancing.[1] She was partnered by Audley Harrison (champion boxer) and they were the sixth couple to leave.[2] In the 2012 tenth series her partner was former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan; they placed 7th. In 2013, it was revealed that Lowe would return for the eleventh series; however she suffered a foot injury during training and was replaced by Aliona Vilani.[3] Lowe returned for the twelfth series, as partner to television presenter Tim Wonnacott.
