The former ‘Xtra Factor’ presenter made history in becoming the first person ever to score three sets of perfect scores in the final of the BBC dance show, and was hailed as "absolutely phenomenal" by the judging panel.
Caroline told Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman that winning the show was the "best feeling in the whole world", adding: "This has been the best experience of my whole life."
Flack scored 40 in each of her three dances in Saturday night’s live show, with famously hard to please judge Craig Revel Horwood, telling her: "My heart has melted."
Earlier this week, Caroline and Pasha had been voted the favourite couple to win this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, in a poll of HuffPost UK readers.
Frankie Bridge, Simon Webbe and former ‘TOWIE’ cast member Mark Wright were all in the running for the glitter-ball trophy, with Mark being the first celebrity eliminated in Saturday night’s two-part grand final.
His fiancée Michelle Keegan, and sister Jessica Wright, both looked on as he was praised for his “caterpillar” move, with Craig commending him for his progress in the competition, suggesting he’d made it to the final after initially being in “the dance gutter”.
