Natasha Kaplinsky's sizzling dance routines provided some of the most memorable moments on Strictly Come Dancing. Past credits for the Oxford graduate include presenting Carlton's London Today and London Tonight programmes, as well as the BBC's Breakfast show. And, as Natasha acknowledged at a 2005 TV awards ceremony where she was named best newscaster, it's journalism that brings her the most satisfaction.
