Series 4 of Strictly come Dancing was the best yet. Unfortunately, one of the contestants, Jimmy Tarbuck, was taken ill and was unable to compete which left 13 celebrities and their partners. Consequently we had a final with only two couples, the ex-England cricketer, Mark Ramprakash and ex-England Rugby player, Matt Dawson.
The bookies' original favourite, Emma Bunton, was knocked out in the semi-final. The two sportsmen were superior in their dances, with Mark's Argentine Tango receiving an almost perfect score of 39.
The final, because there was only two couples, meant that they had to dance five dances. Mark danced the tango, salsa, Viennese waltz, a dance to the judges' choice of music and a show dance. Matt performed a waltz, a cha cha, again the Viennese waltz and the same dances as Mark.
Mark and his partner Karen Hardy were triumphant with them receiving a maximum 40 points for their salsa to Hot Hot Hot.
The whole show was great. I cannot see it being topped in future.
It is 30 December 2007 - I am editing my comments from last year to say that this year's programme was even better as far as the dancing is concerned.
The final three were outstanding. I would have preferred a three-person final but unfortunately Kelly Brook had to withdraw owing to family bereavement, making a two-person final.
I was disappointed that Gethin Jones (the Blue Peter presenter) was knocked out in the semi-final as I feel he could have been the winner. I know this sounds strange, but you have to have seen it to know what I mean.
The eventual winner was singer Alesha Dixon who was superb throughout the contest. She beat Matt Di Angelo, the EastEnders' actor, although they were very close during the contest.
The worse thing about this year's show was the decision by the BBC to have the results show on a Sunday, despite being filmed on the Saturday. Inevitably the results were leaked onto the Internet which defeated the object of have tension in the results.
Another annoying thing is the lengthy pause between the presenters saying who is knocked out. We have been saying for years that we dislike this but still they do it. Give us a break - don't prolong the agony any further!
