Joe McFadden has been announced as the winner of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ 2017.
The ‘Holby City’ actor lifted the Glitterball Trophy with professional partner Katya Jones in Saturday (16 December) night’s grand final.
The pair, who were the bookies’ favourite to win going into the final, triumphed over fellow contestants Joe McFadden, Alexandra Burke, Debbie McGee and Gemma Atkinson.
However, their win came despite the fact Alexandra and partner Gorka Marquez actually topped the leader board on the night.
Alexandra and Gorka were awarded a total of 89 points out of a possible 90 for their three dances, compared to Joe and Katya’s 88.
But the final vote was purely down to the public to crown the winner, with the judges’ score purely there for guidance.
