And we just *love* his reaction...
In this world, very few things contain more glitter, sequins and jazz hands that Strictly Come Dancing.
This is except for, of course, the Christmas special of Strictly Come Dancing.
Yup, we’re talking more sequins per square foot of the ballroom dance-floor than is humanly possible to imagine. And why? Because CHRISTMAS, that’s why.
And so, as we’re sure many of you are aware, this years Strictly festivities were as sparky as ever- with many of this seasons ballroom favourites waltzing back onto the dance floor in the name of Crimbo fun.
The special episode saw the return of Denise Lewis, Frankie Bridge, Pamela Stephenson, Ainsley Harriott, Gethin Jones and Melvin Odoom- who all competed for the coveted Christmas trophy.
And guess what? It was our Melv’ who came out on top- managing to scoop the top spot after performing the Charleston, which secured him a perfect score of 40.
Taking to Instagram, Melv shares a snap of his victorious moment- with the caption ‘What a way to end the year! It’s an honour to be this years @bbcstrictly Christmas champion! 🏆 Thank you for your support and thanks to my wonderful dance partner @jmanrara….Merry Christmas one and all!!’.
Congrats Melv, you lovely little elf.
Melvin’s victory follows his slightly tumultuous exit from the Strictly competition a during week one- in which BBC producers had been accused of unfair treatment of the radio DJ.
Following Melv being booted from the show on the first week of the competition, some fans had began to engage in a race row after fellow contestant Tameka Empson became the next celebrity to depart the dance floor- with many viewers concerned with the politics behind this public decision.
At the time of all this concern, the BBC had slammed the possibility of a racist agenda to The Guardian– stating ‘Judges judge the dancing and the dancing alone, not anything else’.
