When Strictly Come Dancing returned for a fifth series in Autumn 2007, there were a few changes to the format. For the first time, the Results Show was now transmitted on a Sunday rather than a Saturday, and also for the first time the bottom two couples were forced to participate in the dreaded 'dance-off' to save their place in the competition.

First off the dancefloor were Coronation Street actors Brian Capron and Stephanie Beacham, with presenters Gaby Logan, Dominic Littlewood and GMTV's Kate Garroway following shortly after. Kelly Brook, who looked as though she might challenge for the crown this year, was forced to withdraw following a family bereavement.

In the end, the final three celebrities battling it out were Blue Peter's Gethin Jones, former EastEnder Matt di Angelo, and eventual champion Alesha Dixon (partnered with Matt Cutler).
