Sequins? Check. Scandalously short skirts? You bet. Plunging necklines? It wouldn't be Strictly without a bit of boob! And that's just the women. Glitzy, glamorous and gloriously camp, the outfits always steal the show.

Hollywood, the Roaring Twenties, Broadway - Strictly has the most fabulous themes on TV. 

6. The shockers

From Gavin Henson kissing Bruno Tonioli (who subsequently gave him a 9) to John Sergeant dragging Kristina Rihanoff around the floor, Strictly has never been short of headline-grabbing shockers!

7. The comedy moments

Who could forget Anne Widdecombe and Anton du Beke's Titanic routine? Or the moment when Russell Grant became a human cannonball? The comedy moments make Strictly the show we all want to be on.

8. The notorious Strictly 'curse '

All that clutching, twirling and hot sweaty moments in rehearsals has led to a string of steamy affairs between dancers and their celebs. The famous Strictly Come Dancing curse has claimed plenty of victims, including Caroline Flack, Natasha Kaplinsky, Matt Di Angelo and rugby star Ben Cohen.

9. The judges ' quotes

“Great guns of fire, you were like Conan the Destroyer!” Bruno Tonioli got a bit excited about Steve Backshall's paso doble.

10. Dancing at Blackpool Tower Ballroom

The dancers all head to Blackpool Tower Ballroom for a special each year. This is the holy grail of ballroom. Like playing rugby at Twickenham or ballet at Sadler's Wells. The chance to dance here is another reason we all want to be on Strictly.

If watching Strictly has you wiggling and twirling across the room, try a Strictly Come Dancing class and live that dream! Spray tan optional.
