Last night saw bookies’ favourite Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse lift the Glitterball trophy in the emotional Strictly Come Dancing 2019 final.

The jubilant stars wept as they were announced the winners, beating Emma Barton and Anton Du Beke, and Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden in the very last episode of the decade.

Even Oti’s sister, judge Motsi Mabuse, was in tears of pride after awarding Kelvin and Oti perfect scores for all three of their routines.

And some fans may have noticed Kelvin’s own parents were in floods as they gave their son a standing ovation from the audience.

His proud dad Warren Fletcher was left completely speechless when Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly read out the winners’ names – and could do nothing but sob with choked emotion as he and Kelvin’s mum looked at each other in shock.

They were sitting next to Kelvin’s wife Liz Marsland, who beamed and cheered at her husband’s win.

The proud threesome seemed totally overcome with emotion as even Kelvin stumbled for the right words to express his feelings.

Liz has been Kelvin’s rock during his training, even patiently understanding why he’s had to swerve important family occasions to have a shot at the trophy.

Not only did his miss his wedding anniversary because of his and Oti’s gruelling training regime, last week he also had to skip his son’s first birthday.

The 35-year-old actor has been getting up at 5am to start working out before heading into 12 hours of training with Oti.

After learning his routine on the Monday, Kelvin has been making sure he knows it off by heart by Tuesday lunchtime so he and Oti can spend the rest of the week perfecting every step.

The Strictly champ has been chowing down a whopping 3,000 calories and drinking four litres of water a day to fuel his rehearsals, and it’s certainly paid off, with even Motsi and Shirley Ballas losing their composure over his muscles.

And Liz has been coping with judges’ feedback about Kelvin and Oti’s sizzling chemistry with aplomb.

She told Hello! magazine: “It doesn’t bother me, I’m used to seeing him kiss Britain’s sexiest females on Emmerdale.

“I know the biggest part of a dance is the story and making it believable, I understand it’s performance.”
