Bell made three centuries and two half centuries as England overcame the Australians 3-0 in the five-test series.
His 562 runs proved the difference between the sides with his 109 in the second test in Nottingham, his second Ashes century, helping his team to a 14-run victory.
Another century in the first innings of the second test at Lord's paved the way for a crushing home win.
Bell, like his England team mates, suffered in the return Ashes series in Australia a few months later, however, failing to make a century as the tourists were thrashed 5-0.
