Strictly Come Dancing winner Aliona Vilani quits BBC show

Strictly Come Dancing's Aliona Vilani has announced she is leaving the BBC One show, three days after winning the glitterball trophy with Jay McGuiness.



She announced the news on Twitter, saying she had gone into the most recent series having "decided [it] would... be [her] last one".

Vilani said this year's series had been her "best Strictly experience ever".

The winning couple are booked for the Strictly Come Dancing live tour, which starts on 22 January in Birmingham.

Vilani and McGuiness, a member of boy band The Wanted, were the bookmakers' favourites to win the competition after their jive won the first 10 of the series in October.

It was the second time Vilani had been victorious in the competition, having previously won in 2011 with McFly's Harry Judd.

Vilani has been on the show for seven years. Her previous partners include Rav Wilding, Matt Baker, Tony Jacklin and Gregg Wallace.
