The second largest audience, 10.6 million, came after comedian Seann Walsh and his married partner Katya Jones were seen kissing in public.

The figures for this year's final are similar to those for last season's finale - which was seen by 13.1 million viewers at its peak, with an average audience of 11.6 million.


Documentary maker Stacey Dooley beat Youtuber Joe Sugg to win the title, with her dance partner Kevin Clifton.

Strictly returns with a special episode on Christmas Day.
