Tonight’s grand final saw Bobby Brazier, Ellie Leach and Layton Williams compete for the Glitterball Trophy, with the trio being joined by their professional partners Dianne Buswell, Vito Coppola and Nikita Kuzmin respectively.

The proceedings see each couple perform three routines, with the Showdance coming in between the Judges’ Choice and the couple’s own personal pick. The four judges will score each dance, but the champion is solely determined by the public vote.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturdays and Sundays on BBC One, while spin-off Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights on BBC Two. Both shows are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.

Tickets for Strictly‘s 2024 live arena tour are available now.
