Favourite Dance: Joe and Katya Charleston – amazing winners of Strictly Come Dancing 2017.
Strictly Come Dancing 2017: The Final. Joe McFadden & Katya Jones dance the Charleston to ‘Rag Time Band’ by Ella Fitzgerald. This was a favourite
The public voted in the talented pair Saturday December 16. It was a surprise. The favourites were not these two.
Former Holby City actor Joe McFadden and his partner Katya Jones lifted the glitterball trophy. They were crowned Strictly Come Dancing champions.
The pair beat finalists Alexandra Burke, Gemma Atkinson and Debbie McGee and their partners after each couple had danced three times.
The 42-year-old, who won the public vote, is the oldest champion of the show. It was in its 15th series.
Joe was shocked by the nation’s decision. He thought he was in with a good chance. But to win was not what he expected. Competition was very high.
The favourites were others on the dance floor.
Joe and Katya were fantastic to watch as they danced together. The routines were unique, creative and inventive.
The Glaswegian said he had not expected to win “in a million years”.
“It feels completely surreal and I’m so in awe of everyone who started all of those weeks ago,” he said.
He called Jones an “amazing woman”, adding “thank you for sticking with me and persevering”.
Will Joe return to acting? His new career could be as a professional dancer. But then he could do both. He is very talented and adding dancing to his skills will be a good thing
