He added of his Strictly journey in general: ‘I didn’t want to miss out on anything. I wanted to experience all of Strictly, I welcomed it all.’

Elsewhere in the interview Bobby’s dad – who watched him in the final – spoke of his pride for his son but also warned him that there will always be ups and downs in the entertainment world they work in.

He said: ‘It comes naturally to him. Bobby from the NTAs forward and actually obviously with EastEnders and everything he has done since he left school has been great. 

‘It is impossible for him to stay on that trajectory and part of me will wonder what happens when he gets that bump in the road. This industry is not easy.

‘Everybody sat at the table knows that, there will be highs and lows. That is what I am here for.’

It comes after Dianne broke her silence on Sunday morning after the show’s final – where she lost out on the Glitterball trophy for a second time. 

In 2018, she was a finalist on the sixteenth series with her partner and now boyfriend  YouTuber Joe Sugg – but they didn’t win.

But as she reflected on the 2023 series she said she was less ‘obsessed’ with winning the trophy and was choosing to focus instead on the friendship she found with Bobby.

She said: ‘I used to be so obsessed with winning a sparkly trophy constantly thinking about that moment and what it would feel like!

‘But what I have realised dancing with this wonderful human is the win and the sparkle is everywhere if you want it to be. 

‘Last night Bobby and I danced with so much joy passion and emotion that my heart was bursting with happiness and pride and there was our win! 

‘Bobby’s only competition in this show was himself he wanted to become a better dancer and a better professional and to help him achieve both those goals makes me a proud teacher.

She signed off by adding: ‘I am so grateful that i was the lucky one to be partnered with bobs and I am so excited for his bright future ahead he is not just a real talent but a really lovely soul. 

‘Thanks for making me enjoy my dancing like I was a little girl again no fear no anxiety just love and passion for what I am able to do.’
