Smith waltzes his way to Strictly title

BUST A MOVE : Louis Smith (right) with dance partner Flavia Cacece

FOURTEEN MILLION viewers tuned in to witness Olympic medallist Louis Smith being crowned the winner of popular reality television programme dance contest Strictly Come Dancing on December 23.

The 23-year-old, who won gymnastics silver and bronze medals during the London 2012 Olympic Games, hoisted the glitterball trophy after receiving the majority of the votes from the public.

Partnered by Flavia Cacece, Smith finished ahead of actress Dani Harmer, television presenter Denise Van Outen and Girls Aloud member Kimberley Walsh.

Smith, who was the youngest competitor in this year’s competition, said of the triumph: “I can finally say I won something in the year 2012.

"I can't wait to have a drink of mulled wine, eat sausage rolls. I might order a Chinese on Christmas Eve.”

He added: "I've pretty much been non-stop since April. To go from the Olympics straight into this, it's just been crazy."
