Louis then thanked Flavia saying she was ‘the nicest person he had ever met’ and praised her for her patience.


And how does winning Strictly compare to an Olympic medal? Well, “they are both very different,” Louis told Bruce Forsyth.

The Olympian has had an absolutely fabulous series and just when we thought things couldn’t get any more perfect – he went and whipped his top off for his penultimate performance.

A move which certainly had us grabbing for our phones.

Len’s little munchkin, Dani Harmer came in fourth place and did an absolutely amazing job.

We don’t know about you, but we have just loved watching Tracy Beaker tear up the dance floor every week.

Goodbye Strictly, you have done us proud and we will miss you, it’s been emotional.

Now, we just can’t wait to see what celebs next year brings to the dance floor.
