Joe McFadden and Katya Jones crowned winners and pick up Glitterball Trophy

Joe McFadden and his partner Katya Jones have lifted the glitterball trophy and been crowned champions in the final of Strictly Come Dancing.

The former Holby City actor beat finalists Alexandra Burke, Gemma Atkinson and Debbie McGee to win the 2017 series.

The 42-year-old became the oldest champion in the show’s history.

The couples each danced three times and the winner of the 15th series was decided by a public vote.

During the final, each duo performed a showdance – where there were no rules and anything goes.

They also revisited the judges’ favourite dance of theirs from the series, as well as their own personal favourite, which was only revealed on the night.
