Well there we have it, after months of excitement and anticipation The Wanted’s Jay McGuiness has been crowned this year’s Strictly Come Dancing winner.

Woohoo, congratulations, etc. etc.

However, the good news doesn’t stop there for the star - with Jay apparently all set to bag a massive £1 million from other deals following his win.

Talk about a Happy New Year, eh?

It has been reported that Jay has already been approached to star in the West End next year, with a source revealing: “Jay isn’t rushing any decisions but the future is certainly looking very good.

"He’s most keen to take on a West End role. It’s very early days but this is definitely something he’ll look at pursuing because it combines his love of singing and dancing… A lot of people have suggested he launches a solo music career but he’s not interested.

"He’d much rather do something with his former bandmates again, although that’s looking unlikely for the foreseeable future.”

Jay, who was paired up with professional dancer Aliona Vilani, has also been approached for prestigious award shows, with the insider adding to The Mirror: “But he is open to doing some music-related TV presenting.

“He’s been asked to do something for The Brits next year. When he makes a decision it’s always very considered, but he has a lot of options right now.”

It is thought that the singer made £75,000 for appearing on Strictly in the first place, and previously admitted that he needs to find a bit of work once the show comes to an end, explaining: “I have a purpose and it’s given me a sense of routine and ambition and I don’t feel like doing nothing again.

"I’d had a year-and-a-half of just sort of having fun and I don’t want to do that. After the tour I’m seeking work.”

We have a feeling that you won’t have any problems at all, Jay.
