Hear from our last Strictly winners, sisters Hayley and Ashleigh on their experience:

Finance assistant Hayley said: “We signed up to support St Cuthbert’s Hospice as we’ve both lost family and friends to cancer.

“Our Granda Ernie who had been battling cancer for a year, sadly passed away a couple of weeks into our training (in 2020).”

“It meant so much to us to be taking part in his memory.”

Social worker Ashleigh said: “We were last to dance on the night so we were getting more and more nervous.”

“I was so scared. At one point I was sat back stage just staring into space.”

“It was always just a bit of fun and we didn’t ever think we would win. We just couldn’t believe it, I was still getting over the shock of scoring all tens from the judges and then when they announced we had won it was just amazing.”
