When Strictly Come Dancing became such a huge overnight hit, the BBC rushed to get a second series on-air as soon as possible. So only four months after Natasha Kaplinsky was crowned winner of the first series, ten brand new celebrities hit the dancefloor in Autumn 2004 for series 2.

Memorable moments from this series included Quentin Wilson's legendary Cha-Cha-Cha (which earned only 8 points from the 4 judges, the worst score in Strictly history!), Julian Clary doing his 'An Officer And A Gentleman' impression at Blackpool's Tower Ballroom, and some spectacular routines from the likes of Denise Lewis, Aled Jones and Roger Black.

And whilst Tess Daly was on maternity leave, Series 1 winner Natasha Kaplinsky stood in alongside Brucie as presenter for a few weeks!

Eventually triumphing as the winning couple in Series 2 was actress Jill Halfpenny and her partner Darren Bennett. Watch the clip below to enjoy again one of their dances from the grand final.
