"Obviously Ricky Whittle was fantastic when he did it. He has real rhythm, and that's something hopefully I can learn, because you're sort of born with it, aren't you? I think he's one to look up to for me. He is one who led the field."



Fiona Fullerton picks.... Kara Tointon

"I think Jill Halfpenny from series two was the first time we really saw somebody who had that passion and style in them, and it was wonderful to see. It was joyous."

"I just have to say Mark Ramprakash, because he was so fabulous, and I played football with him for the Arsenal ex-professional and celebrity team. One of the things about Mark is that he is lovely, and he was brilliant, so he is the hero to try and emulate."



Rachel Riley picks... Kara Tointon

"Denise Van Outen and Kara Tointon were both amazing. They grew up close to where I am from in Essex and they were both just fantastic dancers. Watching back clips of them just terrifies me at this stage."



Susanna Reid picks... Bill Turnbull
