Taking to Twitter, Simon said: "Being presented the awards is truly one of the best things to have happened to me, you the people chose us @KRihanoff.

"For this I thank you all. We also thank everyone for the votes on the SCD tour you have truly made a difference. It's been emotional!"

Joining the likes of Mark Wright, Alison Hammond and Rachel Stevens, 36-year-old Simon and his fellow celebrity dancers wrapped up the live tour at London's O2 Arena on Sunday.

An ecstatic Kristina said: "Thank you to everyone who voted for @simonwebbe1 and I on the @SCD_Live_Tour!! We are the champs!"

The tour has wrapped up after nearly four weeks and was an opportunity for fans of the BBC One show to see their favourites up close on the dance floor.

Series 14 of Strictly Come Dancing wrapped up in December where former Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack was crowned the winner after beating off competition from Mark, Simon and Frankie Bridge.
