Ratings have increased over the series and the numbers for the final mark a significant increase on the launch show in September, which was watched by an average of seven million viewers.

Disability equality charity Scope has described Rose’s participation in the show as a ‘massive step forward’ for disability representation.

Meanwhile, Stonewall applauded John and Johannes for bringing visibility to same-sex couples following Saturday night’s final.

‘We were delighted to see John and Johannes wow the nation with their fantastic performances in yesterday’s wonderfully diverse final,’ a Stonewall spokesperson told Metro.co.uk.

‘We can’t be what we can’t see and seeing two same-sex dancers delight viewers throughout this series will mean so much to LGBTQ+ people across the country.’ 

During the live final, which went ahead without contestant AJ Odudu who pulled out on Friday due to an ankle injury, both couples performed three dances.

Both Rose and John had matching scores during the final, with both receiving a perfect 40 for their revisited favourite dances and their showdances.

However, the judges’ marks did not count towards the final result, which was solely down to the public vote.
