Behind the scenes at the Strictly afterparty as Fleur East takes to the mic

Strictly Come Dancing has come to an end for another year following the epic series finale on 17 December.

The final show of the 2022 series saw wildlife cameraman Hamza Yassin and his professional dance partner Jowita Przystał lift the Glitterball trophy, beating Helen Skelton and Gorka Marquez, Fleur East and Vito Coppola and Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu.

Hamza, 32, was noticeably overwhelmed as his and Jowita's names were called out by hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman at the end of the show on Saturday.

The winning duo then celebrated their achievement at the star-studded Strictly after party, which saw the entire 2022 cast come together.

Behind-the-scenes snaps showed the celebrity contestants having a blast as they reunited for the final time with the Strictly pros and the rest of the production team to celebrate the end of the series.

Tyler West and Ellie Simmonds could be seen posing for a selfie together as they made their way to the after party with a pal in a photo shared to Instagram.

Ellie, 28, then joined comedians Jayde Adams and Ellie Taylor, Loose Women's Kaye Adams and radio host Richie Anderson for a group snap, which she captioned: "Love these humans".

Entertainment at the Strictly bash was provided by finalist Fleur East, 35, who showcased her incredible singing skills on stage as she performed for her co-stars.

The former X Factor star was joined by fellow finalists Helen, 39, and Molly, 22, on stage, with the trio beaming as they danced together.

Strictly make-up artist Summer Dyason shared clips of the fun moment and everyone at the party could be heard cheering Fleur on.

Meanwhile, Tyler took to his Stories to share clips of him and comedian Ellie partying the night away with Richie and professional dancer Johannes Radebe.

Former footballer Tony Adams beamed as he was reunited with his dance partner Katya Jones at the after party, with 56 year old donning a pink striped suit while Katya stunned in a yellow dress with contrasting red lipstick.

Tony later congratulated winner Hamza on becoming the new champion of Strictly, and shared a photograph of them together as they partied.

"Congratulations mate. You are the best human ever Love ya!" the ex-Arsenal player penned alongside a disco ball emoji.
