Harry Judd, once again bagged the Silver Star trophy for BBC’s “Strictly Come Dancing” Christmas Special. The 30-year-old former drummer for British pop rock band McFly was partnered with professional dancer Joanne Clifton, as reported via The Guardian.
The Christmas Dancing King bested other previous participants of the Ballroom and Latin dance live competition. This consisted of Series 11 winner model Abbey Clancy, English television personality Alison Hammond, former “Britain’s Next Top Model” host Lisa Snowdon, ex-Royal Marine medic, and actor Tom Chambers of Holby City who was the 2008 Series 6 champion.
Clifton, also known as Jojo, was all praises for her dancing partner’s accomplishment.
“I am glad he can take home the Silver Star trophy and show his baby when it is born in January! I also want to say well done to the other contestants because as a group we put on a fantastic show!” the 2013 World Ballroom Showdance Championship winner enthusiastically said.
Dad-to-be Judd and wife Izzy Johnston are expecting their first child this coming January.
Judd and Clifton received an amazing 40 in their “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” rendition from the judges which were brought together with the votes from the studio audience. Chambers captured the second spot while Clancy settled for third.
“It’s amazing, thank you so much everyone,” Judd was still in disbelief after he also claimed the top spot for the show in 2011, as quoted in OK! Magazine
“I had the most amazing time and I just want to dedicate this to Joanne who has been an incredible teacher and an incredible dancer,” he added as he was truly pleased to be paired with the talented Cliftone Judd.
