Dancing with the Stars - Tamati Coffey excerpt (Series Five Final)

Television (Excerpts) – 2009

Dancing with the Stars puts celebrities through a series of ballroom dancing challenges. This excerpt from the final of the fifth series sees TV presenter (and future Labour MP) Tamati Coffey channel his inner matador. He and dance partner Samantha Hitchcock perform their second routine of the night: the paso doble. Coffey is "flying" after the judges' review, including unexpected praise from Craig Revel Horwood. Coffey ultimately went on to claim the final in a closely contested public vote, beating Olympic champion boardsailor Barbara Kendall.  

I've seen passion, I've seen heart, I've seen complete focus from start to finish — without acting, it came from within. That was very good.
– Judge Brendan Cole
