Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Christmas winner

Christmas Special 2016

The Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Christmas winner was 'revealed' more than a month before tonight's show.

BBC bosses were said to be furious when spoilers from the pre-recorded show were seemingly posted online, revealing just who won and their scores.

The Strictly Christmas special was recorded back in November in front of a live audience and despite producers begging the crowd to keep the result a secret, it was 'leaked' just hours later.

UPDATE: The Strictly Come Dancing winner has been confirmed HERE!

According to show insiders, show bosses have tried their best to stop the leaks but seemingly to no avail.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: “We have tried everything we can to keep this from happening. We don’t want the show to be ruined for fans.”

Although the winner has apparently been leaked, it's not actually clear if there is any truth to the rumours.

All we can do is watch tonight to see!

This year the theme for the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special is festive movies and there will be a line up of six former Strictly contestants returning to the dance floor.

Those taking part are Ainsley Harriott, Pamela Stephenson, Gethin Jones, Denise Lewis, Melvin Odoom and Frankie Bridge.

In the show, the couples will each pay tribute to one of the most memorable Christmas films of all time in a brand new routine as they compete for the special Xmas trophy.
