Daily Mail reports: She was one the most memorable stars of the last series of Strictly Come Dancing due to her infectious sense of fun and energy.
And on Thursday night, Lisa Riley ended up winning her first ever glitterball trophy with her professional partner Robin Windsor. The former soap star showed off her legs as the dress rode up her thighs during the fast-paced cha cha cha.
Lisa and Robin were thrilled when they ended up getting three 10s from the judges for the routine, before going on to win another trio of 10s for their foxtrot.
No doubt performing in front of a hometown crowd would have also helped Lisa’s performance and eventual winning of the show, as the audience vote for their winner.
An amazed Lisa took to Twitter after Thursday’s show: ‘To the BEST cast In the WORLD @Robinwindsor I love you so much! WE WON IN MANCHESTER!!!! Time of my life!!!!!
‘Me and my hero @Robinwindsor winning the Manchester glitter ball seriously EXSTATIC!!!! (sic).’
