It marks the second successive win for Oti, who has made a huge impression on the show since joining in 2015.

It’s an impressive feat – but is Oti the only one to have managed it?
Has any other Strictly professional won the Glitterball trophy twice?
While no other Strictly professional has won the show in successive years, Aliona Vilani has won the Glitterball trophy twice.
The Russian-Kazakh dancer was victorious in 2011 and 2015 with Harry Judd and Jay McGuiness respectively.

It comes after Bill was named the winner in Saturday’s thrilling final – which achieved 13.2 million viewers at its peak.

‘We cannot express in words what this means to us both,’ Bill said. ‘So to everyone that voted for us, everyone that supported us, any message of support that we received, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. ‘It means the world to us both.’
‘And thank you to everyone who supported the show,’ Oti added. ‘It means the world to us.
