TV's Strictly Come Dancing champions Mark Ramprakash and Karen Hardy squeaked home ahead of arch-rivals Matt Dawson and Lilia Kopylova - despite their rather faltering tango, danced to that old Beatles' standard, Eleanor Rigby.
If they're hoping to defend their 2006 title in 2007, Ramps could do worse than take a leaf out of Saga's Travellers World brochure and book into Buenos Aires for some truly Latin lessons to touch up his tango technique.
The dance lessons are just one of the many highlights of a new 13-night "Into the Heart of Argentina" tour introduced by Saga for this year and 2008.
The itinerary, based on British Airways scheduled flights to Buenos Aires from Heathrow, includes time out in the sophisticated Argentine capital taking in the Italian quarter La Boca and the Presidential Palace, trips to the country's winelands, a visit to the impressive Andes to view the Aconcagua (The Americas highest mountain) a day at a working gaucho ranch, and visits to the spectacular Iguassu Falls, one of the worlds largest and widest falls formation.
Optional extras include a full-day excursion across the River Plate to the Uruguayan town of Colonia, a UNESCO World heritage Site; a three-night add-on trip to see the glaciers of Patagonia (from 449); and a four-night break in Brazil's carnival capital, Rio de Janeiro (from 249).
Departures for the "Into the Heart of Argentina" tour are on May 3, September 6, October 4 and November 1 this year, and January 24, February 7, March 20, April 17 and May 15, 2008. 2007 prices start at 1,999 per person.
