Comedian Rufus Hound jived to Christmas songs to be crowned the King of the Ballroom at a special Strictly Come Dancing show.

He was one of six celebrities to take to the dance floor for the Christmas Day special, filmed at Elstree Studios.

Emerging from an igloo dressed as an eskimo, the comedian broke into dance and wowed the judges and the audience with his moves.

After being crowned the winner, he said: “We didn’t really set out to win, the fact that it’s happened, I don’t really know what it means.”

Other celebrities in the show included EastEnder Ricky Norwood, Matt Goss and West End star Elaine Paige.

Model Abbey Clancey won the finals last Saturday, and took to Twitter to express her gratitude to her loyal fans.

The 27-year-old topped the leader board after finding herself in the finals alongside BBC presenter Susanna Reid and soap star Natalie Gumede.
