Olympic gymnast Louis Smith was crowned King of the Christmas Ballroom in this year’s all star Strictly Come Dancing festive special.

Louis earned a perfect score of 40 points from the judges after his quickstep to Jingle Bells with dance partner Aliona Vilani.

“It’s a nice present, I’m not going to lie!” says Louis. “We’ve had such a fun time although the first week of rehearsals was hard. But since then we have just been chilling out, laughing and giggling, messing around on the dance floor, it’s been really good fun.”

Strictly fans were delighted to see Sir Bruce Forsyth return alongside Tess Daly for the special episode and the legendary host sang a special Strictly-fied version of Winter Wonderland.
