Caroline Flack has been named winner of Strictly Come Dancing 2014 following a closely fought final on Saturday night.

The TV presenter – who had been the bookies’ favourite to take the title – soared to victory after a show which saw her become the first contestant ever to score three perfect 40s for her final routines.

It was also the first victory for her professional partner Pasha Kovalev, who has narrowly missed out on the glitter ball trophy twice as partner to Chelsee Healy and Kimberley Walsh.

The pair fought off competition from Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge and Blue’s Simon Webbe, who also made it to the top three after Mark Wright was eliminated earlier on in the show.
