Natalie Lowe

Occupation: Dancer

Nationality: Australian

Born: November 28, 1980 (34)

Natalie Lowe, a four time Australian Dance Champion, burst onto TV screens as the newest professional dancer in the 2009 series of Strictly Come Dancing. Teamed up alongside ex-Hollyoaks star Ricky Whittle, Lowe shook up the competition by romping to second place with what judge Len Goodman described as one of the most "formidable" Strictly partnerships ever. Lowe, who also appeared in five series of Australia's Dancing With The Stars, has since gone on to dance with soap star Scott Maslen and cricketer Michael Vaughan, but missed the 2013 series of Strictly due to injury.
