Stacey Dooley is this year's winner on Strictly Come Dancing, beating Joe Sugg, Ashley Roberts and Faye Tozer to the glitterball trophy.

The BBC documentary presenter was humble in victory, offering praise and congratulations to her dance partner, Kevin Clifton, a final winner at his fifth attempt.

She said to her partner: "I should say something quite poignant, shouldn't I? You know how highly I think of you. I think you are the biggest gem.

"It's no surprise you have been in the final as many times as you have. It's daunting doing something you haven't done before. But he's so patient and he walks you through. You so deserve this. You so deserve this."

Dooley beat off tough competition, as Faye Tozer and Ashley Roberts achieved the almost impossible as both gained three perfect 40s from the Strictly Come Dancing judges. It was that kind of night!

Here are some of the highlights of a hugely entertaining final . . .

Ashley Roberts opened the finale with a perfect score of 40 to share the top spot with Steps singer Faye Tozer, who also scored all 10s from the four judges.

Joe Sugg and Stacey Dooley, who started the night as joint favourites to win, sat just one point behind in shared second place.

As the final celebrity to appear in the showdance category, Sugg - with a newly-dyed shock of red hair - took on the Arctic Monkeys' indie rock song I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor.

Appearing on top of an oversized guitar amp, Sugg and his partner Dianne Buswell bounced on hidden trampolines before Sugg burst through the front of the largest amp and punched towards the sky.

Tess Daly said: "You literally smashed that."

Roberts opened the third round of dances, in which the finalists chose their favourite dance. Roberts chose the Charleston which she danced to Witch Doctor by Don Lang.

Dressed as portly trolls and inspired by The Troll Movie, the pair's routine earned them a standing ovation.

Shirley Ballas said: "You really are a beautiful troll, I have to say. I truly hope that you have enjoyed your 2018 Strictly journey. You have wooed audiences, you have surprised us, you have delighted us."

Roberts scored another perfect total, earning 40 out of a possible 40 points.

Sugg chose to revisit his charleston to Cotton Eye Joe by Rednex, with a routine inspired by his training as an apprentice roof thatcher. He appeared from behind a small thatched cottage for the energetic performance, for which he wore a sparkly checked shirt.

Darcey Bussell said his performances had got "stronger and stronger" throughout the series and that he had become "a star".

For his last dance of the series, Sugg was awarded 38, with Revel Horwood and Bussell giving him nines.
