Joe McFadden has reacted to his Strictly Come Dancing 2017 victory.

Saturday night saw the four final couples performing live for the last time with three routines each: Their personal favourite, a choice by the judges and the show dance.


As always judges Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood marked all of the performances out of 40 but their marks did NOT count this week: Only public votes decided the winner.

At the end of the night, Alexandra Burke was on top of the scoreboard with a total of 119 points.

However it was Joe who won Strictly Come Dancing 2017 in the results show, where viewers had all the power.

Reacting to the news, he said: “ "It feels completely surreal and I'm so in awe of everyone who started all those weeks ago. We've all become such a tight unit and I love them all to bits."

Speaking about his Pro partner Katya Jones, Joe added: "This woman is the most amazing woman. Thank you so much for sticking with me and persevering, and being the most amazing artist and dancer and counsellor and slave driver! She's amazing."

It was Katya's first time in the Strictly final and she was in tears after the news was made.

Meanwhile, it was not announced who finished in second, third and fourth place in the Strictly results.

Unlike ITV shows, the BBC does not release the Strictly Come Dancing voting figures.


Elsewhere, the Strictly final saw a guest musical performance from Ed Sheeran and a big group performance from all the pros and celebrity dancers.

Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One in the new year.
