The STRICTLY AWARD for BEST HALLOWEEN DANCE goes to FAYE & GIOVANNI

For their spookily spectacular couples choice theatre/jazz performance. This was a first for Strictly and there was no one better to be first than Faye. This dance suited her perfectly and was added to the long list of successful routines that they performed this seires.

The WINNERS of BEST MOVIE WEEK DANCE are SEANN & KATYA

The STRICTLY AWARD for MOST INSIPIRATIONAL goes to LAUREN STEADMAN

She absolutely smashed it this series, producing some wonderful performances and improving week on week and was a true joy to watch. Lauren broke down boundaries and showed that not matter what obstacles are in your way, if you work hard and are determined you can do anything. I loved the fact that she came into the show wanting to win and not showing any signs of her disability stopping her from doing so.

The WINNERS for MOST EMOTIONAL DEPARTURE are CHARLES & KAREN

It was such a shame to see them go as they had made it so far in the competition after having some really rough weeks. It was amazing to see him grow as a dancer and witness some really outstanding and hapeartwarming moments from him.

The WINNER of MOST ENTERTAINING goes to GRAEME SWANN

I absolutely loved seeing Graeme on the show, he put everything into his dances and wasn’t afraid to be a little bit silly. He always tried his best and gave everything that Oti threw at him a go, he was a fantastic sport and a great addition to this years show.

The WINNER of MOST IMPROVED goes to STACEY DOOLEY

As someone who when from having little to no dance experience to winning the show, Stacey grew week on week, becoming less nervous, more confident and at the same time looking like she was loving every minute of it. She did go on a journey and people love to see that which is part of the reason why she won. Her and Kevin trained so hard and she wanted to push her self as much as she could, and by doing that she produced some of the most fantastic routines and ultimately got to lift the glitter ball at the end of it all.

The Strictly Award for MOST SHOCKING MOMENT goes to ASHLEY & PASHA

For finding themselves in the dance off in Week 10, after a fantastic Samba and being consistently high scoring and near the top if not at the top of the leaderboard each week.

The WINNERS of the MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT goes to CHARLES & KAREN

For their couples choice street dance routine in Week 5, the reason for this is because up until that point they had been scoring 25 each week and you could tell it had started to really bring them down. So to see Charles still fighting and then to perform an outstanding routine such as this one was so fantastic.

The WINNER for BEST JUDGE goes to DAME DARCY BUSELL.

Who this year I thought made a lot of fair comments, I think she also showed a bit of a harsher side as well this series which was a nice change. I think all her comments are constructive and make a lot of sense. She is always consistent with her scoring as well, she also provided some laughs and entertainment as well this year.
