“The way he faces challenges with such strength and determination, you have helped me for the rest of my life on how to face my own personal challenges.
“And honestly I’m so proud of every single step you’ve performed on this floor, I just had the best time.
“I didn’t think I could possibly fall in love with Strictly any more and this year my heart is just beaming full of Strictly and that’s down to absolutely everybody and I love you all.”

What did JJ Chalmers say about Amy Dowden?
When asked by host Tess Daly about his time on the show JJ said: “I’m unbelievably proud.
“I never thought I would make it this far, I’ve gotten half decent maybe at something which I had no clue about to begin with and I’ve enjoyed every second of it, it has just been an absolute blast.
“It’s just a privilege to be in this long. I mean this competition is insane! To be counted among that cast at this stage in particular means the world to me. It’s meant everything.
“It’s been an unbelievable challenge, well outside my comfort zone but I’ve had this one to just keep me in it and I can’t quite express what she means to me.”
His voice growing thick with emotion, JJ referred to Amy’s battle with Crohn’s disease as he said: “She’s lived through so much in her own right in fairness and I know that any day she can wake up and she could be hospitalised essentially so she lives fearing she’ll let people down.
“But the way you’ve built me up, you could never let me down.”
