It’s the final of Strictly Come Dancing 2011 – and this year it was Harry Judd’s turn to triumph as the remaining trio competed for the Glitterball trophy
The final, at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, saw our finalists – Harry, Jason Donovan and Chelsee Healey – take part in an opening gladiator-themed routine
The show began with the celebrities reprising a routine from the series chosen for them by the judges. Harry kicked off by once again dancing the quickstep
Jason got the feathers out for a re-run of his tango
And Chelsee reprised her Shrek-inspired jive – although Pasha Kovalev didn’t have quite so much make-up this time
The showdance was next – and Harry performed a feisty little number to Great Balls Of Fire, which even saw him show off his drumming skills
Jason pulled off a spectacular routine which was big on costume changes
And the judges loved it – giving the former Neighbours star another full house
Chelsee performed a disco-themed showdance to the Beyonce song One Night Only
But as the phonelines were frozen, whose turn was it to leave the competition….?
It was the turn of Jason, who finished in third place – but took defeat graciously, describing the show as an ‘incredible experience’
And then there were two – with Harry kicking off the second half of the show performing his first American Smooth of the series
Chelsee, meanwhile, got to tackle the rumba for the first time
The final also featured a performance from Jessie J singing her hit single Price Tag
Harry then took to the floor for the last time, performing an Argentine Tango – and winning himself another full house from the judges
And Chelsee reprised her quickstep from the fourth week, once again winning rave reviews
Before the results were announced, the other celebrities from the series returned for a group routine. There’s Edwina Currie….
….and there’s Anita Dobson, who was given a helping hand by Anton du Beke and Audley Harrison
But then it was the moment we’d all been waiting for – and would the 2011 champion be Harry or Chelsee…..?
It’s Harry! And the McFly drummer looked as though he couldn’t believe the news
Afterwards he thanked everybody for voting and said he was ‘honoured’ to have taken the title
And then, finally, he and Aliona Vilani got their hands on the Glitterball trophy – bringing another series to an end. Same time next year everybody?
