‘Strictly Come Dancing’ Final 2017
At the start of the series, there were claims it was one of the weakest line-ups in recent years, but once again, ‘Strictly’ has proved it doesn’t need star power to dazzle.
The class of 2017 have made this run the most watched in its history, with over 11 million tuning into each episode – a rare feat in TV land, as how many other long-running shows can say they are more popular now than when they began 13 years ago?
Viewers have been completely enthralled and enchanted with Strictly’s magical mix of dance, sequins and campery, and the series has found a deserving champion in Joe McFadden.
The former ‘Holby City’ actor has certainly had the biggest journey of all the finalists, given he had little prior dance experience compared to Debbie and Alexandra.
That said, a victory for Alexandra would have been extra sweet given she was arguably the most talented dancer. It also would have been a victory over the trolls and certain sectors of the press who tried to drag her down during her time on the show.
I guess we will just have to settle for a long-awaited third album from her instead.
