Simon is still wowing the show’s judges every Saturday night, receiving top scores week after week.
He said: “I’m having so much fun and don’t want it to end. I hope all the Blue fans will come along to support me and vote – I want to be able to lift that Strictly Glitterball trophy with Kristina in front of the audiences across the country!”

Since winning Strictly, 37-year-old Tom has won an Olivier Award nomination for his performance in the award-winning West End musical Top Hat and is currently starring in White Christmas at London’s Dominion Theatre, which is smashing box office records.
He said: “Wow, what an opportunity! Having won the 2008 TV series and performed on the tour with Camilla, I know what it’s like to be on the Arena dance floors and take the comments from the judges!
“I can’t wait to get into the famous judging seat and see which of the celebrities wins the competition at each performance!”
