He was known for being unable to contain his emotions throughout the show – so it’s no surprise that Ore Oduba is still on a high from winning this year’s Strictly.
And it looks like speaking to his dad yesterday was another tear-jerker for the dancefloor champion!
His parents, who said how proud they are of him in a special video message before the final, flew all the way from Nigeria to watch him claim the coveted Strictly glitterball live.
And, though he has spoken about how much he misses the show already, Ore hasn’t stopped dancing since the weekend.
In fact, he’s been keeping us well updated over Twitter posts…
Never expected to return to the @BBCBreakfast sofa with THIS? Great to see old friends and faces.. Happy Xmas guys 💝 https://t.co/ildf2YpsRD pic.twitter.com/x6PQlaTII0— Ore Oduba (@OreOduba) December 20, 2016
…Both on his busy schedule and, adorably, on just how much he loves everyone ever.
