Last year Artem Chigvintsev became the pro dancer challenge champion AND new world record holder with a score of 70 botafogos in 30 seconds! Phew that's a lot of steps.

In 2012 It Takes Two came back with a new Pro Dancer Challenge. Here's Craig to explain all...

Once our professionals had attempted their kick ball changes, choreographer Richard Marcel and World Record adjudicator Elizabeth Smith, watched their performances in slow motion to verify every single one. It's ALL about the accuracy dahrling!

And the winner was...

That's right. Flavia won the Pro Dancer Challenge 2012 with 76 kick ball changes in 30 seconds.

You can watch Flavia's winning attempt again, as well as;

    I was disappointed that more of the professional dancers didn't take part in the challenge this year. I think this part of the show may need a complete rethink next year. Even the dancers are beginning to look bored! Any ideas anyone?

    I have enjoyed watching the pro challenge. Well done Flavia - quite amazing! I, too would like to know the name of the piece of music you used for the beginning of the Pro challenge. Thank you.

    Does anyone know the name of that piece of music that introduces the Pro Challenge, it sounds like big film music, like Troy or Gladiator.

    @MrsArcanum


    I'm sorry it's unclear, although things weren't finalised until recently.

    This week's semi-final will feature two dances from each couple and there will be four couples in the final.

    I hope that clears some things up for you.
