Jay McGuiness wins Strictly Come Dancing

Jay McGuiness has been crowned this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' champion.

The 25-year-old singer and his professional dance partner Aliona Vilani couldn't believe it when they were handed the coveted Glitterball trophy ahead of runner ups Kellie Bright and Georgia May Foote.

Asked how he felt after their win, he said: "I feel spaced out. You [Aliona] deserve it so much. It's been one of the most special things I've ever done and with the most special person. And anyone that watched and helped us to get here and enjoyed what we were doing, I'm really happy you liked it because it was the best thing ever."

Meanwhile, former 'Coronation Street' beauty Georgia didn't seem disappointed by the news, insisting she just wanted to get to the final.

She shared: "To be honest, I'm so happy. All I wanted to do was get to the final. I've done it and the whole experience - I couldn't be happier."

Whilst fellow runner-up and 'EastEnders' star Kellie added: "I've had the best time; I really have. I'm glad I got to see it through to the end. I'm glad I got to do as many dances as possible; that was really important. We set out to entertain people."

Earlier in the evening, the class of 2015 took to the stage for a high-energy group performance, performing together for the final time in a show-stopping spectacular.
