This week we welcomed back the A-MAZ-ING Russell Grant who is our Stats Man for this series. Having spent the first 3 weeks with nothing but numbers and facts, he's now here to share his Strictly knowledge with the world!

Training Hours

This week we see that up to the end of Wednesday 31st October, Michael had done the most training with 26 hours and Denise has done the least with 16.

Overall in the series so far, Michael is way in the lead with a whopping 197.5 hours of training. While Dani is at the bottom with 132.5 hours.

Strictly; the story so far...

In the 9 series we've had so far, 118 Celebrities have taken part;

  • 40 actors
  • 25 Broadcasters & Presenters
  • 23 Sport Stars
  • 12 Musicians
  • 5 Comedians
  • 5 Models
  • 2 MPs
  • 2 Chefs
  • 1 Magician
  • 1 Gardener
  • 1 Astologer
  • 1 Nancy (we didn't know where to put her, so she gets her own group!)

And which professions have had the most success, I hear you ask...

The most successful professions have been...

Age of the winners
 
All the winners so far have been in their 20s or 30s at the time of lifting the Glitterball Trophy. But the most successful age group of all is the 30s with 5 winners falling into this group.
Previous scores in week 4

Historically, week 4 of the competition saw the following future champs top the leaderboard;
  • Natasha Kaplinsky with the score of 35 for her Foxtrot
  • Jill Halfpenny with the score of 34 for her Foxtrot
  • Mark Ramprakash with the score of 35 for his Paso
Chris Hollins however finished 8th in week 4 with his Salsa yet went on to win in 2009! He scored 25 points.
 
Peaking too early

There have been a few people scoring spectacularly well in week 4 and then failed to pick up the trophy in the end. The highest ever score recorded so far in week 4 was 36 points. Matt Di Angelo (with his American Smooth), Chelsee Healey (with her Quickstep) and Zoe Ball (with her Foxtrot) all reached this score but as we know, went on to finish runner up in Strictly Come Dancing.
That's all the stats we have for this week but make sure you tune into It Takes Two every weekday from 6.30pm on BBC Two to find out more fascinating facts about Strictly.

    Is it possible that the judges remember we are in Britain and not America as they all insist on saying the show comes in seasons they are Strictly Come dancing SERIES, seasons are Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. First it was X factor with these American terms now it's spreading isn' t the BBC proud of Britain

    I'm afraid I'm not a fan of Karen Hauer. There is really nothing to the routines she is making up, it appears to me that they are made only to promote her rather than Nicky. Also, is it not time we lost of Anton?

    Why didn't you ask Nancy how she sees herself? My guess would be 'businesswoman' , from her lingerie operation. 'Businessperson' might well be a category you *DO* need someday, in any event, should you ever con the likes of Alan Sugar or Richard Branson into having a dabble.

    i thought the training hours was intereting but unfair as they were only until Wednesday evening. Denise and James said they had done 24hours incl Thursday. So perhaps they are misleading.
