It was Melvin Odoom who won tonight's Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Christmas special with an Elf themed performance.

Melvin, who was first to be eliminated in this year's series, reunited with pro partner Janette Manara for the routine.

He was one of six in an all star cast of Strictly celebrities alongside Denise Lewis from series two, Pamela Stephenson from series eight, Frankie Bridge from series twelve, Ainsley Harriott from series thirteen and Gethin Jones from series three.

They each danced a festive routine themed on classic winter movies that the judges marked.
