Strictly Come Dancing professional Natalie Lowe QUITS the BBC One show after seven years



Strictly Come Dancing professional Natalie Lowe has announced she is retiring from the hit BBC One show.

The 36 year old has partnered with Olympian Greg Rutherford on last year's series.

She's also danced with celebrities including Hollyoaks star Ricky Whittle and EastEnders actor Scott Maslen since joining the series in 2009.

"This was a very difficult decision for me not to accept the invitation to appear on this season of Strictly Come Dancing," she told the Press Association.

They put on an impressive show

"It is with a very heavy heart that I have arrived at this decision.

"I'll be forever grateful for the amazing time, opportunities and memories that Strictly has created for me. My time on the programme has been everything that I dreamed it would be and more.

"From the friendships I developed, the amazing dances I was able to perform in and the experiences that Strictly provided, it has been an incredible and extraordinary adventure."

They were the ninth couple to be voted out
She is now working on a new project

Before joining Strictly, she competed on Australia's Dancing With The Stars and even went on to win the 2006 series of the TV show.

During her first year on Strictly in 2009, she danced with Whittle and the pair came second after being beaten by BBC presenter Chris Hollins and professional Ola Jordan.

Last year, she and Rutherford were the ninth couple to leave the show.

But she won't be quitting showbiz for good, she'd working on a new project and also plans to spend more time promoting her dance-based fitness programme FitSteps.

Personally I think Natalie has made the right move leaving with her decision and whilst she has lots of projects on the go and with people wishing she would stay rather than thinking i was her time to go.

She has been a great pro on Strictly and Im sure her new ventures will be a great success

Aw, I liked Natalie but can see why she'd want to go. I wonder what tall dancer they'll get to replace her?

Always leave the party when you're having a good time. Shame we won't be seeing her this year, but I agree Bren, it's far better to go out on a high then to have people getting fed up of you.
Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.

Wishing Natalie well for the future.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
