Congratulations Roll Call

There are a number of Strictly faces had things to celebrate over the Christmas break.

Congratulations to Darcey Bussell, who because a Dame in the Queen's New Year Honours List. She tweeted her gratitude.

Congratulations to finalist Alexandra Burke, who got engaged to boyfriend Joshua Ginnelly on 18th December. She posted a pic to Instagram earlier this week, ending much press speculation.

18-12- 17 🇫🇷 I said YES! Smiling as I type this because it was the best day ever in Paris and so unexpected. My soul mate and my love asked me something that I could only have dreamt of. Being in love is one of the most magical feelings life has to offer. So grateful for this amazing man in my life who has supported my family and I through so much. We decided to keep this between us for a while to enjoy this special moment and that’s why we haven’t said anything... Something so amazing honestly felt so overwhelming because there was only one person I wanted to call when it happened. I know she is smiling and very happy for us both - because little did I know she knew about it. 😇 For those who guessed and have left such beautiful messages - thank you. Josh is someone who makes me so happy and I’ve never felt this kind of love before. Here’s to an amazing future that’s filled with love, joy and so much happiness. I love you Joshua Ginnelly. I can’t wait to see what our future brings and what God provides for us xxx
