Series 7

The sixth series of Strictly Come Dancing began on BBC One on 20 September 2008. Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly returned as co-presenters of the main show on BBC One, whilst Claudia Winkleman returned to present spin-off show Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two on BBC Two. Craig Revel Horwood, Arlene Phillips, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli returned as judges.[1]

The show featured 16 celebrities (two more than the previous series) who were paired with 16 professional dancers. The new professionals were Brian Fortuna and Hayley Holt, who had previously appeared in the American and New Zealand versions of the show respectively,[2] and Russian dancer Kristina Rihanoff, who had taken part in the Dancing with the Stars tour. Nicole Cutler was the only professional from the previous series not to return.[1]

Tom Chambers and Camilla Dallerup were crowned the winners on 20 December 2008.

This was the last series to feature Phillips on the judging panel, as she was controversially replaced by series 5 winner Alesha Dixon for the seventh series.

Format[edit]

Further information: Strictly Come Dancing#Format

The couples dance each week in a live show. The judges score each performance out of ten (with four judges giving a maximum score of forty). The couples are then ranked according to the judges' scores and given points according to their rank, with the lowest scored couple receiving one point, and the highest scored couple receiving the most points (the maximum number of points available depends on the number of couples remaining in the competition). The public are also invited to vote for their favourite couples, and the couples are ranked again according to the number of votes they receive, again receiving points- the couple with the fewest votes receiving one point, and the couple with the most votes receiving the most points.

The points for judges' score and public vote are then added together, and the two couples with the fewest points are placed in the bottom two (if two couples have equal points, the points from the public vote are given precedence). As with the previous series, the bottom two couples will have to perform a dance-off on the results show. Based on that performance alone, each judge then votes on which couple should stay and which couple should leave, with Goodman (as head judge) having the last and casting vote.[3]

However, the situation was different on 13 December 2008, the semi final, when it was announced in the live results show that all three remaining couples would be going through to the final, regardless of the judges' scores and the public vote. This was due to a tie at the top of the leaderboard, which made it mathematically impossible for Tom Chambers and Camilla Dallerup to avoid the dance-off. Despite this, viewers were encouraged to vote, although the problem was noticed by the start of the results show, which was shortened by 10 minutes. All phone votes cast were carried on to the following Saturday, the final.[4][5]

This year there were 16 couples: 8 male celebrities and 8 female celebrities.
