Six of the most-loved and memorable Strictly stars from previous series returned to the ballroom for a festive edition of the nation’s favourite show to celebrate the magic of Christmas. 

Debbie was competing against Chizzy Akudolu, Gemma Atkinson, Joe Sugg, Mark Wright and Richard Arnold.

Hosted by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, the show wouldn’t be complete without the festive foursome on the judging panel; Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Bruno Tonioli and Shirley Ballas.

The all-star extravaganza opened with a truly magical group performance featuring our professional dancers, and the Christmas cast of 2019 in Leeds Castle, Kent.

Each couple then took to the dance floor for their own individual routines.

Once all couples had danced, the studio audience voted for their favourite and their votes were combined with the judges’ scores to decide the winner.

The chemistry was evident between the pair as they performed a Jive to I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, scoring 35.

Mark Wright and Janette Manrara danced the Salsa to Christmas Wrapping, earning a score of 35
