Strictly Come Dancing 2018 Children In Need winner

Here are the results from the Strictly Come Dancing 2018’s Children In Need special and who won.

Over the years the one-off show has seen Strictly performances from BBC Newsreaders, the Stars of Call The Midwife and more.

Last year the Strictly Come Dancing Children In Need line up was a Blue Peter special while this year it was all about Boyzone!

The four piece boy band joined forces with the Strictly professional dancers in a bid to win the Pudsey Glitter Ball trophy for BBC Children in Need.

They hit the dancefloor altogether with one of the Strictly pros for a special group routine.

Ronan Keating – partnered with Gordana Grandosek

Shane Lynch – danced with Luba Mushtuk

Keith Duffy – took to the floor with Nadiya Bychkova

Mikey Graham – coupled with Katya Jones.

The four had two weeks training before their performance, which judges Darcey Bussell, Shirley Ballas, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood judged as a group.

After the panel conferred, head judge Shirley announced their decision.

“I want to say a huge thank you for giving up your time for Children In Need,” she began. “All the couples were fantastic and it was very close. On behalf of my fellow judges and I, we have a winning couple and that is… Shayne and Luba.

Shane reacted: “It’s been absolutely amazing working with everybody but it’s all about the giving, not the trophy.”

Speaking about the show, Boyzone said: “We are so excited to put on our dancing shoes and learn some new moves for the Strictly dance floor!

“It’s an absolute honour to be a part of such a special evening and we can’t wait to show the nation what we’ve got in store.”

The Strictly Come Dancing special featured as part of the Children in Need 2018 Appeal Night on BBC One hosted by Rob Beckett, Graham Norton, Tess Daly, Mel Giedroyc, Ade Adepitan, Rochelle and Marvin Humes
