Strictly Come Dancing: Clementine talks Strictly frocks
Clementine discovers how the Strictly costumes are made
Clementine, the living fashion doll, is a huge fan of Strictly Come Dancing and like millions of people followed every heel-turn of the hit BBC show.
"I love Strictly and fashion is my passion, so I've been luxuriating in the fantastic foxtrot frocks and rare dress disasters," said Clementine.
BBC Sports presenter Chris Hollins was the winner of the competition, beating actor Ricky Whittle in the final.
"I'm the Strictly Come Dancing champion, I'm thrilled," said Chris.
The BBC presenter had performed four dances with his professional partner, Ola Jordan.
After winning the glitterball prize, Hollins praised his opponents and thanked his supporters.

He told his tearful dancing partner: "Little Ola-chops, thank you so much for believing in me all the way along."
Jordan said: "You have been the best partner. You've been a dream to be working with."
This was the seventh series of Strictly Come Dancing. Previous winners include actor Tom Chambers, Alesha Dixon and Mark Ramprakash.
During the series dolly diva Clementine shared her thoughts on Strictly in an exclusive video diary for BBC Norfolk, updated from her country home, a sandcastle on Sheringham beach.
The show returned to our screens on Friday, 18 September 2009, with a new format and new judges.
The show captivated the nation when it first appeared and the re-discovered love of dancing shows no sign of abating.
"I can't think of a nicer way to spend the chilly autumn evenings than to snuggle down and get a weekly fix of strictly, it gives your night a glamour glow," said Clementine.

'Strictly is like a nature programme for fashionistas.
"We get to see celebrities in their natural habitat - glittering under studio lights and in front of cameras. It's like Autumnwatch with sequins, just with none of the funny smells!
"I'm most looking forward to seeing the costumes. With so many contestants and so many different dances it's a real challenge for the costume designers to keep dazzling us, but they always do."
Clementine hasn't always been a pint-sized megastar. She came to life following a freak accident when a falling satellite exploded into a plastics factory.
She now lives in London, but her road to fame and fortune started on a beach in Sheringham, when she was discovered splashing in the surf looking for mermen by Norfolk puppeteer Mark Mander.
It's why she's made the north Norfolk resort the location for her second home and beach retreat.
If you image the love-child of Lucile Ball and Barbie, Clementine works as a singing star, fashion icon and TV presenter with her tiny feet steeped in both fantasy and reality.
She's been sharing her fabulous lifestyle with BBC Norfolk since Christmas 2008. Since then, cameras have followed her on a number of adventures around the county.

When not watching Strictly, she's busy working on her live stage show.
"I love performing to a live audience, but I'll be enjoying my weekends in front of the TV with Bruce, Tess and the Strictly team, just like millions of other fans" said Clementine.
"When it comes to bling I'm like a magpie, and it doesn't get any more sparkly than Strictly Come Dancing - it's such a wonderful show.
"I think Strictly is good old fashioned showbiz, that's why I love it so much. You don't have to know anything about dancing to be entertained.
"For me, the dancing is only one part of the shows appeal - we can't help but cheer on our favourites even if they have two left feet!"
