Strictly Come Dancing cast 2013

It has certainly been a tough 13 week run for the Strictly Come Dancing 2013 celebrities, but this evening it was all worth it for Abbey Clancy as the lifted the Glitterball Trophy along with her professional partner.

This evening has seen a spectacular and glitzy culmination to the 2013 series of the show, but it all came to an end a tad early for Sophie this evening as she finished in fourth place at the beginning of tonight’s results show.

It’s safe to say that all the four finalists have had their ups and downs throughout the series. Abbey Clancy started off by not being able to tell her left foot from her right but since then, she has blossomed into an amazing dancer. She even went on to steal the first perfect 40 of the series.

This evening, she went right back to the first week of the show as she re-performed her Waltz from week one. She’s been nothing short of perfect this evening and is a very deserving winner.

Upon being told that she had won the show, Abbey was speechless, as was her professional dance partner, Aljaz. I have to say, it has been one of the closest finals I have ever seen as all four finalists have been very strong this year, especially Abbey and Natalie Gumede.

Speaking to Tess Daly and Bruce Forsyth following her win, Abbey said: “I just can’t believe it. It’s just mad!”

She added that her little girl will be more excited than her and the Glitterball Trophy will end up in her room”.

Finally, Aljaz said that he has had an amazing year and to win on his debut year is very special. “I can’t believe it. What a journey, from day one up until now,” he said.

Well, thats it! It’s all over for another year. I think this year has been one of the best years Strictly has seen and we’ve certainly has an amazing group of celebrities! I’ll see you next year when we do it all over again!

    Natalie was far too superior to her other contestants. unfortunately the winner is the someone who gets the most votes and not necessarily the best dancer.

    Natalie should have won!! she was the best dancer, she felt the dance , she was the most expressive , I could go on- may be her alter ego from corrie didn’t help

    Natalie is a trained dancer..fact..she was trained by someone who is still teaching today!!! Shes amazing but a fake. .abbey so deserved to win.

    Natalie was the best dancer. Shame she didn’t get the public vote.

  5. Isis on December 21, 2013 at 10:27 pm

    Natalie was far the best dancer. Disappointed thought this was a dance competition not a personality competition, so so unfair on the best couple for weeks on the floor I don’t know If I will watch Strictly again.

    It is a dancing competition not a popularity contest. Natalie was the best dancer. Acting the part of a husband beater in Coronation Street showed she is a good actress as well. Shame the public can’t distinguish one from the other. If it were about entertainment then there were others who were more fun to watch and left the competition earlier.

    Natalie may have been a really good dancer, but Abbey’s journey was far greater. She deserved to win.

  9. Clare on December 21, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    She was to clinical a dancer.

  10. Clare on December 21, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    I meant Natalie was too clinical a dancer.

    Thought Abbey was a very deserving winner, as she transformed from a complete novice into a gorgeous dancer. She had such great chemistry with Alijaz, and he choreographed some very memorable routines for her. So pleased Susanna didn’t win, although how Craig couldn’t have given her Paso a 10 was beyond me, as it was amazing! Sad it’s all over for another year, it’s been brilliant.
