The DOI pro captioned the footage: "Exactly one year ago @jamesjordan1978 and I were working extremely hard on our Bolero not knowing what a huge obstacle we were going to have to face in the final. I am so proud and beyond thankful that we were able to perform this beautiful piece together despite James’s shoulder injury and I can still almost not believe that we went onto winning the @dancingonice trophy after a standing ovation from all the judges. A memory that I will treasure for life!"
