Jake Wood s Salsa EastEnders used car salesman Max Branning turned into an overnight sex symbol with this Samba to Mambo No. 5 in 2014. It was just a pity his partner lifted the choreography from her stint on So You Think You Can Dance? YouTubeAlesha Dixon s Cha-Cha-Cha When Alesha Dixon performed his show-stopping routine on series five, we were convinced she was about to become the next Beyoncé. Instead, she later became the next Arlene Phillips, replacing the veteran on the panel. YoUTubeSophie Ellis Bextor s Charleston The Charleston was a fairly new dance to Strictly when S.E.B took it on in 2013. And despite it only being week two of the competition, she and partner Brendan Cole bagged a whopping 36 points for the routine. YouTubeDanny Mac s Samba Danny and Oti s 2016 routine still makes us come over a bit funny. Let s put it this way - if it was any hotter, it would have been on literal fire. Abbey Clancy s Waltz 2013 champ Abbey wowed the judges with this beautiful waltz in week one of the competition, and brought it back for the final, where they scored a perfect 40 and lifted the glitterball trophy. YouTubeJill Halfpenny s Jive If you can remember as far back as series two in 2004 (!), you ll no doubt remember this knockout performance from Jill and partner Darren Bennett. YouTubeLisa Riley s Samba We don t think anyone has ever had as much fun as Lisa and Robin Windsor did performing their Samba on the show in 2012. YouTubeCaroline Flack s Charleston Cazza s Turkish interpretation of the Charleston cemented her as the favourite to win in 2014. She also performed the dance again in the final, which eventually saw her crowned winner. YouTubeKara Tointon s Argentine Tango Given the sexual tension in this performance, it s no wonder Kara and Artem Chigvintsev announced they were an item shortly afterwards. Louis Smith s Showdance Not only did Louis Smith capture a lot of attention with his toplessness, but his dancing was pretty good in this too. Matt Di Angelo s Salsa Matt went from Dean Wicks to snake hips with his performance of the Salsa in series five in 2007.
