Danny Mac has revealed the real reason he wants to win Strictly Come Dancing 2016.

It's the final tonight as Danny faces Ore Oduba and Louise Redknapp in the last live show of the series.

Danny has said he doesn't care about winning himself, but does hope to lift it for pro partner Oti Mabuse.

Danny explained: "For me, I've had the best time. Getting through to this time to have the entire experience was more than I could have dreamed of.

"All of the dances, al the way to the the final show."

Speaking on It Takes Two, the Hollyoaks hunk said: "I honest to God would only want to win that glitterball for this girl next to me [Oti].

"To see her lift it because of everything she's given me. That's all I can give her back."

Meanwhile, Louise said on the BBC Two show of winning: "I've always said I've come into this competition just loving it every week has been a real bonus.

"I've never looked at it as a competition 'cause I knew it would disappoint me too much to go home so I wouldn't let myself see it as a competition. To win it of course would be the icing on the cake, it would be... the proudest moment for me.

"But I'm in the final with two amazing guys so there's nothing in me that wouldn't be happy for them to win it as well."


As for Ore, he hoped to win for his wife, saying: "To be able to win this for her, I just can't put it into words."

Strictly Come Dancing's final airs on BBC One this Saturday night, LIVE from 6:40PM.

There will be no separate results show, either on the Saturday or Sunday, with the winner revealed straight after the performances.
