After performing three spectacular routines including a judges’ choice, couple’s choice and show dance, viewers chose to crown Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse as this year’s Strictly Come Dancing champions. They scooped the coveted Glitterball Trophy over Karim Zeroual and his partner Amy Dowden and from Emma Barton and professional dancer Anton Du Beke.
The three remaining celebrities battled it out with Karim topping the leaderboard.
However it was Kelvin fans believed should be crowned this year’s winner.
He broke down in tears as he and Oti were given the Glitterball Trophy.
However, fans will never know how close the voting was this evening as the BBC do not share the voting data.

“We therefore do not disclose the exact voting figures.”
Despite the voting figures not being shared with the public, viewers made their feelings about the result very clear.
