Oti has paid an emotional tribute to Strictly winner Bill on Instagram after the duo lifted the Glitterball trophy together on Saturnday night.

Comedian Bill's win made him the oldest ever Strictly champ at 55.

The 30-year-old said: "One magical night. I can't find the words to describe how grateful I am.

"At the beginning of the year my goal was to humble myself with everything I experience this year and boy did this close my year on a high with the best friend I made in @billbaileyofficial but we didn't make it alone."

Oti went on to thank all the cast and crew for their support.

She even did a separate post to thank her husband Marius Iepure for all his support and cuddles, calling her her "absolute rock."

Bill said he has no plans of stopping dancing, and told The Mirror Oti even offered to choreograph his next tour.

"I don't know about the 12 hours' training a day but certainly I'd love to carry on dancing," he said.

Meanwhile trolls have beenclaiming Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse's Glitterball win last night was a fix – because Oti's sister Motsi is on the judging panel.

Viewers fell in love with the comedian's progression from novice dancer to ballroom king, but a minority have said it's nepotism that Oti has won back to back crowns since her older sibling joined the show.

One wrote on Twitter: "Strictly Come Dancing is a fix, you trying to tell me that someone thought bill and oti were better then the rest of the dancers. #StrictlyFinal."

A second posted: "Are you having a laugh!! Bill is better dancer than the other 3???? I’m never going to vote again. It’s a fix and conning you out of money #Strictly."

As a third said: "For Oti Mubusi to win 2 years running both years with her sister as judge just shows how standards in public life don’t matter in UK. Making sure your family and friends get everything is the order of the day here now. Total fix. I shall no longer watch Strictly come nepotism."
