Contents

The shows on 5 October, 9 November and 7 December 2013 were hosted by Daly and Winkleman, with Forsyth taking time off. The show was broadcast live from Blackpool Tower Ballroom on 16 November 2013.

The series was won by Abbey Clancy and Aljaž Skorjanec on 21 December 2013. This was also the last series to feature Forsyth as a main host. The series was also notable due to Brendan Cole becoming the first professional dancer to reach three separate finals.

Couples

On 1 June 2013, it was revealed that Flavia Cacace, Vincent Simone and Erin Boag would be leaving the show. They would be replaced by four new professionals, Aljaž Skorjanec, Janette Manrara, Iveta Lukosiute and Emma Slater. However, on 22 August 2013 it was announced that Slater would move to the US version of the show Dancing with the Stars and that she would be replaced by Anya Garnis. It was also confirmed that Kevin Clifton would be joining the show, bringing the total number of couples to fifteen, one more than the fourteen competing in the previous year. On 2 September 2013 it was reported that professional dancer Natalie Lowe had injured her foot and would be replaced by Aliona Vilani who, however, was eliminated first.

The full line up was revealed on The One Show on 2 September 2013. The celebrities did not know their professional partners until they were introduced to each other on the launch show on 7 September 2013.

This was the first time ever in Strictly history where all the celebrities in the final were women.
