Strictly Come Dancing 2012 winner Louis Smith has confessed he's glad to have got gold in the series.

The gymnast may have missed out on on the top spot at the London 2012 Olympics earlier this year, but won the Strictly Come Dancing glitterball in tonight's results.

Louis Smith triumphed in tonight's final show, beating Kimberley Walsh, Denise Van Outen and Dani Harmer.

It was the first ever win for Strictly pro Flavia Cacace, who seemed more overwhelmed than Louis.

She gushed: "I don't think we can believe it, I can't believe we got here."

She told Louis: "Thanks for sharing your amazing skill and talent with me."

Meanwhile, Louis declared: "I can finally say I've won something in the year of 2012!"

He continued: "Flavia has been an an absolutely legend, she's been unbelievable, shes the nicest person I've ever met and shes so patient, it's unbelievable."

After the result was announced, runner up Kimberley Walsh said: "It has been absolutely amazing, we've loved every minute of it. I'm so so happy for Louis."
