Week 1: Rav Wilding's Tango
Former police officer Rav Wilding - now best known for his TV presenting work on Crimewatch and The One Show - takes to the floor with his dance partner Aliona Vilani to perform a Tango, to the tune "Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing" (made popular by Chris Isaak).
In the first show of the 2009 series of Strictly Come Dancing, the eight celebrities in Group A - Chris Hollins, Ali Bastian, Lynda Bellingham, Joe Calzaghe, Ricky Groves, Martina Hingis, Jade Johnson and Rav Wilding - took to the floor to perform their Ballroom routine.
The second episode, again featuring the same 8 celebrities, was broadcast the following day and featured the couples performing a Latin routine.
After the judges and the public had spoken, two couples faced the dreaded Dance-Off: Rav Wilding and his partner Aliona Vilani, and Martina Hingis and her partner Matthew Cutler.
Sadly, the judges decided that Martina would be the first celebrity dancer to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2009.
