Ore Oduba and Joanne Clifton walked away with the glitter-ball trophy tonight on BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing.

Louise Redknapp and Danny Mac were the runners-up in a star-studded TV extravaganza which also witnessed a touching farewell tribute to head judge Len Goodman from celebrity guests, dancers and fellow judges.

72-year-old Goodman was honoured with a special dance routine set to Andy Williams' 1966 hit, May Each Day. He will, however, return for this year's Christmas special and live tour.

Goodman himself paid tribute to the ratings-busting programme on the grand final tonight"I will miss everything about this show: the fabulous band, the three best judges on television. It's a big machine and you'd miss any of the cogs. I'm going to miss it all."

Ed Balls, who made a guest appearance, commented: "this show is made by the people at home - it's such a special experience and I've loved every minute of it."
