She was crowned the Queen of the Dancefloor as she took home the coveted Glitterball Trophy with partner Kevin Clifton on Saturday’s Strictly Come Dancing final.

And Stacey Dooley beamed with delight as she returned to Brighton with her supportive boyfriend Sam Tucknott on Sunday morning.

Following a night of fun festivities with her co-stars, the broadcaster, 31, couldn’t stop smiling as she arrived back on home turf, while toting flashy Louis Vuitton luggage to her door step.

The star grinned from ear-to-ear with her personal trainer beau, 30, who appeared to punch the air in delight over his partner’s epic win.

Earlier that day, Stacey took to Twitter to joke about accidentally flashing her nude knickers during her final Paso Doble routine.

In her signature humorous fashion, the TV personality summed up her victory in just a few words: ‘I’ve won strictly and flashed my knickers. A perfect Sat night.’

While leaving the Village Hotel Club earlier on Sunday, the presenter opted for comfort as she sported a pair of grey joggers, teamed with a dark-wash crop top, rugged platform trainers and square-framed sunglasses.

She wrapped up against the chilly climes of the city with a sophisticated wool coat and sipped on a warm beverage from Starbucks.  

Looking every inch the natural beauty, Stacey opted for minimal make-up and swept her tresses into a slick ponytail.

Speaking about her win to hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, Stacey said: ‘I should say something quite poignant, shouldn’t I? You know how highly I think of you. I think you are the biggest gem.

‘It’s no surprise you have been in the final as many times as you have. It’s daunting doing something you haven’t done before. But he’s so patient and he walks you through. You so deserve this. You so deserve this.’ 

Through his tears Kevin had similarly kind words for Stacey, as he added: ‘Thank you so much. Not just for being so amazing and dancing so well and getting this, but just for being the most wonderful person to work with, to spend every day in training with.

While Strictly is known for never being short of drama, this series seems to have been its most explosive yet, with no shortage of scandals, rumours and behind-the-scenes drama.

Of course the most prominent was the dramatic kiss scandal between Strictly’s Seann Walsh and his married dance partner Katya Jones, when the pair were spotted sharing a kiss on a night out. 

Meanwhile Seann and Katya both issued grovelling social media apologies, and also appeared on It Takes Two to set the record straight, with Katya insisting her marriage to fellow pro Neil was ‘absolutely fine.’

The duo weren’t voted off Strictly until three weeks later, but rumours have circulated for weeks since that the Katya and Neil’s marriage has suffered thanks to the kiss. 

Seann has been cashing in on the uproar by branding himself Britain’s ‘most hated comedian.’

The comic was also banned from next year’s Strictly tour, and Neil and Katya have also since been axed.
