And who still holds the record for the worst ever Strictly score?

Let’s take a look back at Strictly Come Dancing… in numbers

2 – The number of pro dancers who’ve been there since the very start

Just Brendan Cole, pictured here with Series 1 winner Natasha Kaplinsky, and Anton du Beke

0 – The number of times poor old Anton has won the show

But then, he *has* danced with Ann Widdecombe, Dancy Dell’Olio and Judy Murray.

8 – The lowest score ever recorded

Quentin Willson on Strictly Come Dancing

It was by by motoring TV presenter Quentin Willson in Series 2. Craig Revel Horwood called him Britain’s worst dancer and Bruno said it was like watching a Reliant Robin trying to keep up with a Ferrari.

12 – The number of champions we’ve seen so far

There’s Olympic medalist Louis Smith and Flavia Cacace winning the title in 2012.

33 – The number of perfect 40s that have been handed out in all 13 series so far

38 – The number of perfect 10s awarded to Aliona Vilani so far

Aliona, pictured here with winner Harry Judd, is the top scoring female professional to date

39 – Highest score by a Welsh celebrity

Colin Jackson and Erin Boag, plus Gethin Jones with Camilla Dallerup

Athlete Colin Jackson, who partnered Erin Boag, was runner-up in Series Three to Darren Gough an Lilia Kopyolova. And TV presenter Gethin jones and Camilla Dallerup came third 3rd in Series Five – the year that Alesha Dixon won.

61 – The number of perfect 10s awarded to Pasha so far

He’s the top scoring male professional in all series so far.

3rd – Anton’s highest ever finishing place

That was with Lesley Garrett back in Series 1. Feels like a long time ago…

3 – The number of times Pasha has made the final

He’s the only professional to achieve that.

4 – The number of professionals who’ve won the title on their debut

Brendan Cole with Natasha Kaplinsky in Series 1, Darren Bennett with Jill Halfpenny Series 2, Artem Chigvintsev with Kara Tointon in Series 8 and Aljaž Skorjanec with Abbey Clancy in Series 11 (pictured).

8 – The highest number of perfect scores by a professional

Yes, it’s that man Pasha again

0 – The number of professionals who’ve won more than once

Aliona Vilani and Jay McGuiness

But Aliona Vilani, who won with Harry Judd in 2011, could be the first pro to win twice as she’s the current favourite alongside Jay McGuiness

173 – Number of celebrities who’ve taken part

Chris Hollins and Ola Jordan

That’s not including Christmas specials

61 – age of the oldest contestant to make it to the final

That was the brilliant Pamela Stephenson with James Jordan in 2010

5 – The number of dance-offs Jamelia faced in this series

Jamelia and Tristan MacManus (right) and Kirsty Gallacher and her dance partner Brendan Cole (left), during BBC1s Strictly Come Dancing results show, as Gallacher and Cole are the latest pair to leave the show

She survived four. Good effort.

74 – The age of the oldest contestant

Strictly's Tess Daly, Iveta Lukosiute and Johnny Ball
