Eamonn Holmes joked: "That must have been hard," to which Kevin replied: "It was!" He added: "She always reminds me about that Glitter Ball thing so that's why I had to finally win it on the last series." When Ruth Langsford asked whether his sister's win preyed on him, he joked: "Yes! She never stops talking about it just all the time. The year Jo and Ore [Oduba] won we were in the final together."

Joanne also joked that her win was revenge for their childhood, telling Ruth and Eamonn: "He used to practice his wrestling moves on me, get me in headlocks." The pair joined This Morning to reveal the exciting news that they were going on tour together for the first time. Kevin explained: "After 30 years of having this dream of doing it, we are finally going on tour together… not only that, we're also touring with a show called Burn the Floor… it's the leading ballroom dance company, just an incredible troupe of dancer." Joanne added: "I went to watch it. I thought I was done with dancing… then I watched Burn the Floor and that was the first time I thought, 'You know what, I'd love to be in it.'" We can't wait to see the pair in action!
