Camilla Dallerup's record on Strictly Come Dancing

In 2008, Camilla Dallerup partnering Tom Chambers won Strictly Come Dancing.

A bizarre situation saw Camilla and Tom qualify for Camilla's first Strictly Come Dancing final.

They came third in the semi-final in the judges' voting, but because Rachel Stevens and Lisa Snowdon tied for first place and telephone votes of any number could not save Tom and Camilla from the dance-off, the BBC decided that all the couples should go through to the Strictly Come Dancing final.

Camilla Dallerup took part in the first six series of Strictly Come Dancing and is the professional dance partner of Ian Waite.

In Strictly Come Dancing series 5, Camilla Dallerup partnered Gethin Jones.

They did very well and Camilla and Gethin ended up third, just narrowly missing out on the final after a dance-off with Matt and Flavia.

In series one of Strictly Come Dancing Camilla Dallerup partnered David Dickinson and in series two she danced with Roger Black - they were the sixth couple to be voted off.

In the third series Camilla teamed up with chef James Martin. James and Camilla ended up doing well in Strictly Come Dancing - just missing out on the final.

Camilla's extraordinary rapport with James seemed to make up for her well publicised split with Brendan Cole, with whom she remains friends.

In series 4 of Strictly Come Dancing, she partnered Ray Fearon, but they were voted off in the sixth show.
