Strictly Come Dancing is a UK institution as celebs fight it out for one goal in mind – getting the glitterball and be crowned winner.
From series one all the way back in 2004, we’ve been seeing sequins fly, a whole lot of injuries, and some serious tears shed in the name of making it to the final.
Whether it’s turning your two left feet into tango masters, or Cha Cha Cha-ing your way to victory, it’s safe to say that it’s become a mainstay of BBC One.
So who’s next to join the elite list of stars who can say they soared to victory?
As the 2020 series comes to an end tonight, we’re about to see a new couple raising that trophy.
Here’s everyone who’s managed to raise the glitterball so far – and who they had to beat to get there…
