Leotard-clad Webb won the public's heart with this performance (includes the programme's end credits).

Comedian Robert Webb has won charity show Let's Dance For Comic Relief with his leotard-clad performance of What A Feeling from 80s movie Flashdance.

Webb narrowly beat Keith Lemon and Paddy McGuinness who performed a routine from the film Dirty Dancing.

The Peep Show star's victory came after a public vote that will boost the amount already raised for Comic Relief.

Webb said: "I feel fantastic. It's been marvellous, it's been like falling in love with myself all over again."

Head panellist, Strictly Come Dancing's Anton Du Beke, said he wished there could be a tie, but colleagues Denise Van Outen and Michael McIntyre both came out firmly in favour of Webb.

The show, hosted by Claudia Winkleman and Steve Jones, will add to the 57m raised by the end of Comic Relief night in the early hours of Saturday morning.
