Stacey Dooley suffers embarrassing wardrobe malfunction moments before Strictly win

Stacey Dooley had her priorities straight after winning Strictly Come Dancing

Stacey Dooley has been crowned the victor of Strictly Come Dancing 2018.

Unlike the two stand-out dancers, Ashley Roberts (Pussycat Dolls) and Faye Tozer (Steps), the BBC documentary-maker had zero dance experience, yet improved so much that viewers were open-mouthed and teary.

Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton's foxtrot to Jeff Beck's Hi Ho Silver Lining, which saw them top the leaderboard with 33 points in week four, has been chosen as their judges' pick for the Grand Final.

And while she wasn't top of the leaderboard, viewer votes alone crowned her the victor on the night just as was predicted.

She said: 'This year is the first year that I put the tree up.

But others were quick to race to the star's defence, with one fan exclaiming: "Calm down twitter".

McGee added that she had found her former dancing partner did wonders for her confidence after losing her husband Paul Daniels in 2016. I had to learn that you can burn yourself out so I've learnt from that so I have been pacing myself ever since'. But he's so patient and he walks you through.

Clifton, who has previously been in the final four times but has never won the show, joked that he is "already panicking" about this weekend's final, and the pressure to finally take home the Glitterball trophy.

Stacey said: 'It's daunting, it's daunting doing something that you are not brilliant at in front of millions of people. Mostly this will be padded out with pro dances, montages, musical interludes, more montages and plenty of recaps, but we've done it before and we'll do it again.

"You've worked so hard".

'I know I've said this a couple of times over the last few days.

"You're so lovely and I think the absolute world of you".
