Hamza, 32, flashed a smile for the cameras as he left the Strictly Come Dancing finale afterparty on Saturday night.

The star struggled to hide his excitement as he cut a casual figure in a pink and navy striped long sleve polo t-shirt as he was spotted beaming.

Meanwhile, despite a tense show, head judge Shirley Ballas seemed to be in a bright mood as she made her exit.

The 62-year-old star beamed as she sat in her taxi cab in a comfy pink faux fur coat as she made her way home.

During the final, the personality looked furious as she was interrupted by a heckler whilst she was critiquing Helen Skelton‘s showdance.

Craig Revel Horwood was seen looking in high spirits after completing his 20th series on the judging panel.

The star has been on the judging panel of the BBC celebrity dance programme since its inception in 2004.

He has a reputation for being the harshest of the judges and is often booed by the studio audience.

This comes after the former CBeebies presenter was crowned the winner of the 2022 series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The Scots wildlife cameraman wowed audiences with his moves in this season of the BBC One competition.

Hamza was up against singer Fleur East and partner Vito Coppola, CBBC star Molly Rainford and professional Carlos Gu, and presenter Helen Skelton and partner Gorka Marquez in tonight’s final.

Even though the personality was at the bottom of the leaderboard, the 32-year-old came out on top in the public vote and took home the legendary glitterball.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was one of the numerous high profile personalities to wish the winner well, as she said: “Congratulations Hamza and Jowita.”

Whilst former BBC Breakfast star Dan Walker wished Hamza well, but tweeted his support for his friend Helen Skelton: ” Well done Hamza… Helen didn’t win but she has won. She danced through a whirlwind, never mentioned it and remained dignified throughout.”

Whilst Radio 4 host, Dr Sian Williams tweeted: “Surround yourself with people whose eyes light up when you come near The top of one mountain is the bottom of the next and… What was the last one? About going slowly? Anyway – gorgeous. Utterly joyous. #Hamza.”
