For the sixth series of Strictly, broadcasting in Autumn 2008, a record-breaking 16 couples took to the dancefloor, meaning that the show was on air from 20 September right the way through to 20 December.

Actors seemed to be the first fallers in this marathon race, with Phil Daniels, Gillian Taylforth, Jessie Wallace and Don Warrington all leaving the show in the first few weeks.

Controversy raged in this series when journalist John Sergeant continued to be saved by the public vote, despite gaining much lower scores than evicted celebs like Cherie Lunghi and Heather Small. Eventually John Sergeant withdrew from the contest, leaving a memorable final four contestants to battle against each other for the trophy - Austin Healey, Lisa Snowdon, Rachel Stevens and eventual winner actor Tom Chambers with professional partner Camilla Dallerup.
