The sixth series of Strictly Come Dancing began on BBC One on 20 September 2008, with Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly returning as presenters, and Craig Revel Horwood, Arlene Phillips, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli returning as judges. The show featured 16 celebrities who were paired with 16 professional dancers. The new professionals were Brian Fortuna and Hayley Holt, who had previously appeared in the American and New Zealand versions of the show respectively, and Russian dancer Kristina Rihanoff, who had taken part in the Dancing with the Stars tour. Nicole Cutler was the only professional from the previous series not to return. Tom Chambers and Camilla Dallerup were crowned the winners on 20 December 2008. This was the last series to feature Arlene Phillips on the judging panel, as she was controversially replaced by Alesha Dixon for the seventh series.
