Giovanni seemed happy alongside his glitterball trophy

"When you think it can't get more emotional… look at mum and dad…" he said alongside two crying emojis. The video shows his parents shouting and crying as his and Rose's name is announced. Another family member and a newborn baby can also be seen in the brief clip.

Saturday's win was Giovanni's first. The Italian dancer had reached the final three times before, but this was the first time he has been crowned champion.

Following the big night, the 33-year-old took to Instagram to pay tribute to his partner Rose.
