Strictly Come Dancing Winners: Where are they now?



With the final of Strictly Come Dancing coming up this weekend we thought we’d take a look back at previous winners.

Can you remember who won the first ever series back in 2004? Well, fear not we have all the former champions and what they have been doing since they were crowned champion.

Natasha Kaplinsky

Natasha was the first ever winner of Strictly Come Dancing when the show launched in 2004.


She was partnered alongside pro-Brendan Cole, and frankly twelve years later she looks exactly the same.

Natasha has presented the news on BBC, ITV, Channel Five and Sky.

Arelene Phillips commented:”You are the coolest, the hottest, you are a Strictly Come Dancing ballroom star.”

Jill Halfpenny

Jill managed to win the glitterball trophy back in the second series of Strictly.

She continues to act and has recently starred in the BBC drama Ordinary Lies.

Plus she has a flourishing career on stage appearing in West End hits like Calendar Girls.

Bruno Tonioli noted: “Jill is a cracker of a performer. She doesn’t just dance. She explodes on the dancefloor!”
