Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly saved the best until last, serving up some serious glamour for Saturday night's grand final. The 51-year-old presenter looked incredible when she emerged in a sequinned dress, joining Claudia Winkleman for the action-packed conclusion to a magical series.

Tess looked stunning in her sequinned dress

For last weekend's semi-finals, the statuesque blonde, who is dressed by stylist James Yardley, wowed in a bright pink Alexandre Vaulthier dress.

James finished off Tess' look with Jennifer Fisher jewellery and bespoke shoes by Gina.

The presenter's most memorable outfit of the series until now, however, might just have to be her scarlet thigh-split gown for Movie Week - which was the perfect choice for that old Hollywood feel. How stunning was Tess' Suzanne Neville gown?

Another standout look was her purple sequinned number for Blackpool week, which stylist James revealed was a nod to the party city.

Tess previously admitted she likes to surprise viewers with a pop of colour where possible, adding that comfort is key when it comes to her Strictly wardrobe.

Another favourite was Tess' Movie Week look

She said: "That's really important to me in my job, because there is an expectation of glamour working on a show like Strictly.

"Truthfully, I'm usually running in heels between takes throughout the two hours of the show, so I can't wear dresses too long or too tight."

We'll be missing the glitz and glamour of Tess and Claudia's wardrobes next weekend, that's for sure. Here's to another fabulous series.
