“The runners up were @rose.a.e and @giovannipernice! Congratulations everyone!”

It probably comes as no surprise to some as Sara, 37, is originally from Newcastle.
Fans rushed to the comments to congratulate the pair.
One wrote: “Amazing! So lovely that Sara has had the support of her hometown.”
Finally someone other than Rose and Giovanni to win!
A second added: “Awww yay! I’m so happy Sara won in her hometown and very pleased Rose and Gio came second.”
In addition, a third said: “Finally someone other than Rose and Giovanni to win! Congratulations.”
Another commented: “Yes congratulations @saradaviescc you deserved to win after all your hard work.”
However, one appeared disappointed over the news.
They posted: “Sorry for Rose/Giovanni they were the best dancers, but people will vote for Sara if it’s her hometown.”
It follows days after Rose and Giovanni came under fire for their successful run on the tour.
Giovanni’s tribute to Rose
Meanwhile, whilst on the road, Giovanni recently showed off his tattoo tribute to Rose.
The inking featured a Glitterball with the letters ‘SCD’ written across it, as well as the date the pair were crowned winners.
Showing off the tattoo last week, Giovanni posted on Instagram: “We are the champions, we are the champions,” as he tagged Rose.
