Louis Smith Wins Strictly Come Dancing
Olympic gymnast takes gold medal position in BBC reality show...
The 23-year-old and his partner Flavia Cacace impressed viewers with their charleston and salsa routines - as well as taking part in a show dance.
Former Girls Aloud star Kimberley and TV presenter Denise in the judges' voting - with DVO just one point ahead of Louis and Kimbers on 119.
But the public favoured the Olympian, and on hearing of his win he compared it to his sporting efforts, saying: "They're both very different, but I can finally say I've won something in the year 2012!"
Professing his desire to continue dancing, he praised partner Flavia: "She's the nicest person I've ever met... she's so patient!"
And she responded: "Thank you for sharing your amazing talent and skill and ability with me."
