It’s looking increasingly like Harry Judd and Aliona Vilani are going to emerge as the eventual winners of Strictly Come Dancing’s Series 9 at Blackpool’s world famous Tower Ballroom.
The news that Aliona is highly likely to be in the competition all the way to the finishing line is great news for most of the males tuning in each Saturday evening.
To put it simply, Aliona is pretty hot stuff! Alongside Ola Jordan and celeb Holly Valance, Aliona raises a few temperatures each week, so the longer she’s shaking her stuff in the contest – the better many of us men will like it!
Like a lot of other professional ballroom dancers, Aliona comes from Russia originally, but her family moved to America when she was thirteen. She had been asked to go to the States to join the Kaiser Dance Academy in New York, where she started learning Salsa, Hip Hop and Jazz in the Broadway Dance Center.
With her dance partner Harry Judd, the McFly drummer, Aliona has really stolen the show this series. The pairing have been favourites more or less all the way through the competition and are now available only at 1/2 in the Strictly Come Dancing odds.
Aliona made her first ever appearance on Strictly back in 2009 when she partnered Rav Wilding. The pair only survived until Week 3.
Then in 2010, the Russian temptress partnered Matt Baker, thankfully making it all the way to the grand final as males all over the UK sat glued to their screens – suddenly taking much more of an interest in ballroom dancing than they had ever shown before!
The pair impressed the judges in the final with a fine Samba, but it wasn’t quite enough to tip the scales in their favour in a contest eventually won by Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev. Those looking at the Strictly Come dancing winner odds will be wondering if she can do better this time around.
It looks like the Russian doll will go one place better this time around.
