Who won Strictly Come Dancing 2017 on the BBC this weekend? For everyone who missed the show we’ve got the result!
At the end of the episode Holby City actor Joe McFadden was crowned the champion for the 2017 edition of the program along with his partner Katya Jones. This was only her second year as a professional dancer aboard the show but managed to make it all the way to the top.
While Joe was considered by some to be the favorite this year, this was a season where there were actually a very large number of contenders. Joe isn’t even the person in the final round who generated the most overall votes; that honor instead went to former X Factor contestant Alexandra Burke, who put up a strong showing through most of the season.
Are we sure that there will be some controversy coming out about the win, or some people who come out and say that there is some super-specific reason why Joe should not have? Sure, mostly because this is the same sort of thing that happens every year. There’s not really that much of a tangible benefit for anyone to win Strictly Come Dancing, though one of the biggest reasons why fans get some invested is because they see how hard celebrities work in order to try to win. They want them to have that moment of satisfaction, where they go through the long and difficult journey to get to the top and feel on the other side as though it is worth it.
Ultimately, we don’t think that anyone who took part of the 2017 version of this show is going to come out of it feeling altogether sad? It’s a fun experience that they all had an opportunity to be a part of and it should give them all a nice career bump. This is one of Britain’s most-popular shows year in and year out, and we absolutely don’t see this changing now. It’s family television and it’s a chance to see familiar faces in a new light.
