10 of the hottest Strictly professionals to have ever chased the Glitterball

We’d be happy to be paired up with any of these…

The 15th(!) series of Strictly Come Dancing has landed! And whenever Strictly’s in town we are glued to our TV screens, mainly because it combines two of our favourite things: dancing, and hot men in tight clothing.

As much as the show is about the contestants, we’ve also got our eyes on the hunky professional dancers, so let’s take a lot at the 10 hottest Strictly pros.

AJ Pritchard

At 22, AJ is the youngest male pro Strictly’s ever had. And with his boyishly good looks and charm, he is easily one of the hottest. And best of all, he’s not afraid to take a selfie, with his Twitter and Instagram littered with them.

AJ made it to the semi-finals last year, here’s hoping he does it again… in slightly more revealing clothing this time.

Gorka Márquez

Gorka may have only joined Strictly last year, but the Spanish sizzler immediately turned up the heat. Although he didn’t last long in the main show, he did come back to dance with Anastacia when her partner was taken ill. And ever since then, it’s been impossible to tear our eyes off of him, especially with his Instagram being one of the biggest thirst traps out there.

Look at those abs! It looks like someone’s chiselled them, and sadly it wasn’t us…

Pasha Kovalev

Pasha is one of Strictly’s longest serving pros, and as such has featured in some very revealing costumes.

Whether being an open-topped astronaut for his rumba with Caroline Flack, or a samba where Kimberley Walsh gets to expose his chest – not that we’re jealous. And even though he’s been on our screens since 2011, we still haven’t stopped watching his introduction video…

Back in 2015, things were so much better. There was no Brexit, Trump was only a TV host, and Gleb Savchenko was showing his moves – and more importantly his body – off on Strictly.

His samba with Anita Rani might not have been the best, but it deserved a 10 as soon as his top came off. And even though he abandoned us after just one series to go back to Dancing with the Stars, we still can’t rip our eyes off of him. And yes, it’s because of how he models for his own underwear brand, and posts a tonne of thirsty selfies.

Giovanni Pernice

The best time ever!!! Dubai ❤️

Lovely time in Ibiza/Formentera .. now time to do some work !! Next stop Scotland ???????????? #danceislife

2015’s Strictly also saw the debut of Italian stallion Giovanni Pernice. Oozing with charm, and having a sexy accent makes him very popular down here, and he’s never been afraid to have an open top on for the show. Which is good news for us.

Oh, and he also enjoys showing everything off on Instagram, which is even more good news for us.

Brendan Cole

Anton & I, sunning it up #strictly style waiting to shake a little move in an hour or two! #sunshine

A post shared by Brendan Cole (@brendancoleinsta) on

Brendan is the original Strictly hunk – sorry Anton. Dancing since series one back in 2004, there’s no move of Brendan’s that we haven’t seen. Except for the ones that he does in private, but Brendan, if you ever do want to show them off, we won’t be objecting…

Artem Chigvinstev

Old school pumping iron session before the blocking ???? What should I be focusing on ?????

A post shared by Artem (@theartemc) on

Artem may have sadly left us for Dancing with the Stars – seriously, stop taking our hotties! – but thankfully we made the most of him during his time here.

Our pulses were high every time he took the dance floor, and thankfully he went far in most of his series, meaning we could focus on him for ages. But Artem, you’re looking kinda lonely there in the gym, need a buddy?

Jared Murillo

Sadly, this American hunk only did the one series of Strictly, and didn’t return, but we enjoyed what we saw of him. And if Jared keeps posting stuff like this, then we’ll just keep enjoying what we see of him.

Aljaž Skorjanec

But first I need to find out what the proper dress code is ????

A post shared by Aljaž Škorjanec (@aljazskorjanec) on

Back for my fifth series of @bbcstrictly! So excited to see old friends and make new ones! Can't wait to start creating ✋????

A post shared by Aljaž Škorjanec (@aljazskorjanec) on

Aljaž is Strictly’s resident cutie. Whenever he’s on our screens, we just go all puppy-dog eyed looking at him. His charm and smile just make us melt, and forget what a mess the world is currently in.

Oh, and Aljaž, we see nothing wrong with your golfing attire. Perhaps you should wear it on the show sometime…

Robin Windsor

This couldn’t be a Strictly hunks list without our former cover star Robin Windsor. Oh, Robin, we still wish you were dancing on the show today. But, if you ever are invited back, maybe use this picture as a suggestion for what you should be wearing.
