‘Thank you to everyone out there for voting for us. This is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.’

He went on to share the inspiring words a choreographer once said to him, with Hamza stating: ‘One, surround yourself with people whose eyes light up when they see you come in.

Earlier in the show, things got very emotional for Hamza Yassin as he finally bagged his first perfect score for his and Jowita Przystal’s final dance of the season – his very first 40 score.

For their final dance of the night, Hamza and Jowita performed their couple’s choice dance of to Jerusalema – Remix by Master KG featuring Burna Boy and Nomcebo Zikode.

And after their disappointing Showdance, the two were determined to end their Strictly experience with a bang.

And they did just that as they had everyone on their feet with their thrilling routine, with things getting a little teary during the comments as they judges praised his amazing progress. 

Shirley told the couple: ‘Take a moment, take it in, you are what I call the true competitor… We are going to miss you, you are a star in your own right. Jowita, you are just beautiful. What a wonderful partnership.’

While Anton fought back tears as he said: ‘I get a little emotional watching you dance because it’s like the clouds part and the sun comes out. I’ve watched a lot of people dance in my life and I’ve found a lot of joy in watching you.’
