ULTIMATE STRICTLY Advent Calendar 2018


If there’s one pro dancer guaranteed to dress up in a fancy dress costume, it’s Pasha Kovalev and last Christmas it was a reindeer outfit for him as he danced a jive with Kimberley Walsh. Dancing to Run Rudolph Run, they pranced around the dancefloor for the first time since they made the final of series ten, and earned the top score of the night with 39 points. This saw Pasha rise to the top of the leaderboard of professional 10s in Christmas Specials, bringing his total to ten, and meant he’s the professional with the most 10s in normal competition and Christmas too!

Kimberley was no stranger to the 10 paddle in her own Strictly story, earning twenty along the way, including three perfect 40s through the series. First up was her fusion dance (thankfully they only lasted one series!) of a tango and cha cha cha in week 10, followed by her charleston the following week, and finishing the final with a flourish when her tango joined the 40 club.
