The Olympian takes gold after beating Matt Lapinskas in the final.

After ten weeks of intense competition, gymnast Beth Tweddle has emerged as the victor in the skating show. In a close final, Beth, Eastenders star Matt and Olympic boxing champ Luke Campbell completed two dances, including a showcase skate featuring some other pro skaters.

Luke was later knocked out of the competition leaving Matt and Beth to perform the infamous Bolero dance, made famous by skating legends Torvill and Dean.  Although both routines were praised by the judges, it was Beth and her partner Dan Whiston that were crowned the winners.

However, the win was met with controversy as numerous fans flooded Twitter to show their anger over the fact that Beth had beaten Matt. Many believed the actor should have walked away with the trophy as he had managed to achieve two perfect 40 scores in his earlier routines.

Following her win, Beth told host Phillip Schofield “I’m speechless. [It feels] amazing. All credit goes to Matt and everyone who’s helped us.”

Congratulations to Beth- that’s another trophy for the collection!
