While watching the celebrities show off their moves on Strictly Come Dancing every Saturday, we often find ourselves imagining what it would be like to compete on the show.
Of course, we then wonder who would be the perfect professional partner to guide us around the famous dance floor.
Well, we've analysed the statistics to work out which dancers often gets the best out of their celebrity and takes them all the way to the final, and who has found themselves regularly bowing out early in the competition.
Giovanni Pernice has a great track record on the show. Since starting in 2015 he has reached the final three times with Georgia-May Foote, Debbie McGee and Faye Tozer. He's also taken Michelle Visage to the Blackpool special of the show, while Laura Whitmore's week seven exit is his worst appearance on the show.

It's looking good for the Italian dancer this year too, who has an 'unwritten language' with his partner Rose Ayling-Ellis with the pair being tipped to be real contenders to win the show.
Reigning Champion Oti Mabuse is the only current professional dancer who has won the show twice. She lifted the glitterball with Kelvin Fletcher in 2019 and Bill Bailey the following year. While she secured a respectable week eight departure with Jonnie Peacock and week ten with Graeme Swann.
She did leave the competition first with Anthony Ogogo in her debut year on the show, but let's just pretend that didn't happen!
Karen Haeur is the longest serving professional dancer having joined the ranks in 2012. Although she has never won the show, she reached the final with both Mark Wright and Jamie Laing. While she bowed out at her earliest ever point with Greg Wise this year. We'd say that's pretty impressive for 9 series! She's made dancers out of Hairy Biker Dave Myers and Jeremy Vine.
Katya Jones' creative choreography and strict teaching methods has meant she's won the show with Joe McFadden and never left sooner than week six.
Her earliest exit was with Seann Walsh, shortly after they were spotted kissing.
Dianne Buswell joined the show in 2017 and although she reached the final with now-boyfriend Joe Sugg in 2018, she has found herself saying goodbye in week three with Rev Richard Cole and in week four with both Dev Griffin and Max George.
Unfortunately, she isn't able to change her luck this year as her partner Robert Webb has recently pulled out of the competition due to a heart problem after 'intense' and 'weird' experience.
