'I can finally say I won something in the year 2012': Olympic gymnast Louis Smith lifts the Glitterball Trophy on Strictly Come Dancing

By SARAH FITZMAURICE and LOUISE SAUNDERS

Winners: Louis Smith and his partner Flavia Cacace lifted the Glitterball on Saturday night's Strictly Come Dancing final show

Louis Smith has proved himself a winner on the dance floor after picking up the Glitterball Trophy on Saturday night's Strictly Come Dancing final.
The 23-year-old Gymnast and partner Flavia Cacace beat Kimberley Walsh and Denise Van Outen to the top spot on the show.
Louis managed to make a joke about missing out on a gold medal at the Olympics in London this summer and told Tess Daly: 'I can finally say I won something in the year 2012.'

What a joker: The 23-year-old gymnast made reference to narrowly missing out on a gold medal at the Olympics and said he could now say he won something in 2012

Louis was quick to pay tribute to his partner and said: 'She has been an absolute legend.'
He added: 'She is the nicest person I have ever met.'
And it's clear that Flavia thinks equally highly of her partner as she thanked him for showing her his 'amazing talent and skill'.

Hugging out it: Flavia, who has been in the final of the dancing show before, seemed delighted to finally be lifting the Glitterball

Flavia, who has been in Strictly final before but never won until this series, was delighted and hugged her partner tightly after the result was announced.
Louis was the bookies favourite to take the top spot on the show, although he didn't receive the highest score from the judges during the final show on the night.
Girls Aloud singer Kimberley proved to be a gracious runner-up and told said: 'It has been absolutely amazing and we have loved every minute of it and I’m so, so happy for Louis.'

Overcome with emotion: Flavia was seen hugging the 23-year-old gymnast as they learned they had earned the most votes from the public

Louis pulled out all the stops to win the public vote, including going topless for his second performance.
The Olympian completed three dances during the evening, including the Charleston, the Salsa and a showdance that showed off his impressive gymnastic skills.
Louis was the last to take to the stage with his medical themed Charleston and Craig Reveal Horwood was the first judge to point out just how tough the competition was.

Guest performer: Robbie Williams took to the stage to perform during the final of the show

He said: 'This is going to be so difficult at home. I don’t know how anyone will make a decision.'
He also ditched his critical opinions to give Louis high praise and told him: 'You have worked solidly on that.'
'Your personality and character have really come to the forefront.'

Darcey noted: 'I love that you add the cheeky Louis into the performance.'
Len also had high praise and noted: 'That was a gold medal performance.'
Bruno said the performance was 'Just what the doctor ordered'.
He added: 'You came out here with more tricks, more fun and more accomplished than ever.'
