As he was excitedly lifted up by his fellow contestants in celebration, he almost dropped the trophy on the rink and broke it.

Gascoigne was emotional as he awaited the results, saying: "The whole day has been like whoosh, I'm trying to hold it together so much."

Runner-up Cole, 45 said: "I've loved every second of this show, I'll be very sad when it ends. My body won't be, my body will be very glad of a rest."

Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt missed out on her chance to perform the Bolero after finishing third.

The 40-year-old singer and dancer said: "Thank you so much, this has been such a beautiful experience and I'm so grateful to everyone for everything they've done for us."

Gascoigne had to step to come to professional partner Karina Manta's aid after she suffered a wardrobe malfunction during their second routine of the night.

The show's final was initially expected to be on 20 March but was delayed by a week because of football airing on ITV.

This year's series saw both hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby miss a week of presenting due to testing positive for coronavirus, as well as contestants Rachel Stevens and Bez.
