Stacey Dooley has won Strictly Come Dancing for the 2018 series.

The TV presenter and documentary-maker was crowned the winner alongside her professional partner Kevin Clifton.

Though, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it was Kevin who was the celebrity, as he was held aloft by his fellow professionals while in tears, after several years in the final without a win.

"It's a Christmas miracle!", bellowed Kevin after the win was announced.

Stacey beat fellow finalists Ashley Roberts, Joe Sugg and Faye Tozer to lift the glitterball trophy.

Stacey and Kevin would have come bottom if the results came via the judges, with Ashley and Faye receiving perfect '40' scores for all three dances.
