McFadden dances his way to the winning trophy

POSTED ON 22 DECEMBER 2017

Joe McFadden and his partner Katya Jones were announced the winners of Strictly Come Dancing 2017 last Saturday and received the glitterball trophy

The former Holby City actor beat finalists Alexandra Burke, Gemma Atkinson and Debbie McGee along with their dance partners. Each couple performed three times and included a judges pick, a showdance and a contestant’s pick.

13.1 Million viewers tuned in to watch the final at its peak time with an average audience of 11.6 million. McFadden is the oldest champion and said: “It feels completely surreal and I’m so in awe of everyone who started all of those weeks ago”.

The winning couple performed the Viennese Waltz for their Judges’ Pick, earning them a score of 39; they also gained another 39 points dancing to You Make My Dreams by Hall and Oates, telling the story of Cinderella and her Prince Charming. Their final performance scored them a further 40 points with their “toy soldiers” Charleston.

So now that Strictly has finished what will we all be watching over the next few weeks? 

Well, the main answer to that is Christmas films of course! Miracle on 34th Street, Elf and The Muppets Christmas Carol would make the perfect weekend of films. Don’t forget about Mary Berry’s Christmas party, the Doctor Who Christmas Special, 30 Years of French and Saunders and also Strictly will be returning to our screens with the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special. So, there is lots to look forward to and keep us entertained right into the new year.
