Actually, I don't think the BBC did get the winner they wanted. I think Denise was their preferred choice. However, she came third or second, which means that if they were looking at offering her the ITT or Strictly co-presenter's job, she's done well enough to merit either (based on 3rd placer Zoe and non-competitors Bruce/Tess/Claudia currently doing those jobs).

As to the question being asked, I don't think Denise was robbed. She was bottom two for the past two weeks, suggesting that she wasn't getting the public vote. She did better in the final than anticipated by many (though I had a sneaking suspicion that she wouldn't be out first). All three of the top three performed well on the night and would have been worthy winners. So I have no issue with the winner. Just as I wouldn't have if it had been Denise or Kimberley. I actually think that this final had the strongest line-up that I can remember.
I agree. Any one of the final three was a worthy winner, they were all excellent tonight, but actually I thought Louis was the weakest. Of course I'm too ancient to vote for a bare chest, I voted for the dancing i.e. Denise !!

I think she was robbed of some of the enjoyment of talking part. Glad she got to dance right to the end.

No. She wasn't the best dancer and no one liked her.

Massive fail on all levels really. James is a disaster as a partner too.
No one liked her that will be why she was not first out tonight. If she was not the best Dancer you better let the Judges know becuase she got the most points tonight and over the whole series.

Lewis was easily the weakest of the three. Denise's show dance was quite simply the best dance of the series by miles.In fact one of the all time greatest SCD dances IMHO

It doesn't say much for the Public's judgment ! I would have put Louis in 3rd place after Denise. It was obviously a further Olympian vote.
Not much point now, is there? You were clearly wrong, weren't you?

Yeah, but that's according to you - and no one else agreed did they?

And you spell his name Louis not Lewis.

Who is this 'no one' person ?? Judging by the forums tonight, loads of people loved Denise. I certainly did. Don't make such sweeping statements, especially when they're blatantly wrong.

The best dance of the whole series was a dead heat between the show dances of Denise and Louis and Kimberley's tango. I so admired Denise and James for their risk everything show dance.

And IMHO that is no more than YHO - and opinions don't count.

Louis and Flavia are champions!

(pops another bottle of champagne)

Cheers.

Any chance you could stop assuming no-one likes Denise? Just because she didn't win doesn't mean she was unliked. Not everyone likes Louis, you know

I don't think it should ever be left to a public vote, which is why I no longer watch.

It's nothing to do with skill or talent, it's nothing more than a personality contest.

[quote=PinkyPig;63137715]I probably did forget Dani, who i've recently discovered had been employed in a dancing role, but Fern? Really? If you say so...what a bad loser you are!

Anyway, just as in other years the ringers were defeated by the voters.[/QUOTE

Fern has had some dance training (tap dancing) and, in case you had forgotten, was in last year's Christmas Strictly, I think.

And no, I'm not a bad loser, I just state the facts.

Please go back and check you need to learn some manners I was quoting another persons post that said that and sticking up for Denise like I have for weeks. Dont jump on someone until you have you facts right.

Denise and James were top with the judges and I agree but Louis with his vest off was sure to win. It's fairly easy to predict now. Most women tend to vote for young men and they're not looking at the dancing much.

Still...Louis looked chuffed to bits and I hope he enjoys the win. I don't know if he's on the tour but he'd be very popular no doubt.

Denise was the best dancer and should have won. It seems to me that the outcome was predetermined as no way did Louis deserve to win (but then, Rachel was robbed as well by the Beeb changing the rules to keep their 'own' man in).

Unfortately, the best dancer seldom wins, with Kara probably the only exception.

The only worse result than tonights, which makes a complete mockery of what is supposedly a DANCE show, would have been if the awful Lisa had made it to the final and won.

I honestly despair of the GBP!

A sad end to the worst series yet

EDIT: I hope next years celebs on SCD are better, as the DOI list seems to be scraping the barrel as well.

At the end of the day Louis is not a dancer and therefore has made quite a journey through the weeks. He danced well enough to make himself a viable winner. If you add that to the suggestion that the considerable female audience for Strictly is arguably going to find Louis attractive on many levels(and perhaps more inclined to vote than men generally) I dont think its that surprising that Louis has won. Infact I could not see it going any other way as there was no significant male challenge to Louis over the weeks which might have weakened his vote.

I am sorry you thought I had bad manners, but the start of your post was so badly written, it did not make sense and therefore conveyed the wrong message.

Rather an over statement to say "no one liked her",I did and as she was not out first so did alot of other people.I thought she and james worked well together.

Personally I don't think Denise or Kimberley should have been taking part, they might not be professional ballroom dancers, but their musical theatre experience gave them a totally unfair advantage, and therefore I can't say that either of them were robbed.
Totally agree.
I think if they hadn't kept on about Denise "not being a dancer" all the time she might have stood a better chance with the public, but have you heard the saying "thou doest protest too much". They all said it on It Takes Two this week again. Then when the judges gave her the extra point at the end it was the final nail in her coffin.
