Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell has admitted she believes Kellie Bright should have been crowned the winner instead of Jay McGuiness.

It was Jay and Aliona Vilani who triumphed on Saturday night (18 December) - but the results didn't please everyone...

Speaking on the spin-off show It Takes Two, Darcey said that in her opinion, EastEnders actress Kellie and her partner Kevin Clifton "definitely" should have won "without fail".

Gushing about the performance, Darcey continued: "Her performance brought everything together. There wasn't a mistake. It was on the money. She had more energy than anybody. She gave everything."

And the ballerina didn't seem to be alone with her opinion. Fellow judge Craig Revel Horwood appeared to back her up, adding: "She turned in the most spectacular two performances."

However, Craig pointed out that the final decision isn't down to the judges, but the public, and that despite the fact Strictly is a dancing competition it takes more than just skilful moves to win.

He said: "It's not the best dancer that wins, it's whoever changes the lives of people at home."

Were Kellie and Kevin your winners? Either way, that Star Wars Charleston deserves to be watched again, we reckon!
