Grant Denyer has won Dancing with the Stars after a stunning finale episode. 

The television host, who first won the series in 2006, walked home with the mirrorball trophy alongside his professional dance partner, Lily Cornish. 

The 44-year-old said after his win: ‘This show means the world to me, I absolutely love it.’

‘If I wasn’t dancing or hosting it, I would be changing the light bulbs in the roof,’ he added.  

Grant went on: ‘I vowed 15 years ago to never dance again because it was the best memory of my life, I thought I could never top that so why would you even bother. 

‘I’m so glad I changed my mind and did this because it’s been the best sensation’ he concluded.

As well as a shiny trophy, Grant wins $20,000 for his chosen charity, The Smith Family.  

The six grand finalists were Courtney Act, David Rodan, Deni Hines, Grant Denyer, Kris Smith and Ricki-Lee Coulter. 

They danced their hearts out in the ultimate ballroom showdown. 

With all the couples performing a freestyle dance, Grant, Courtney and David topped the leader board – each collecting a perfect score.

However, it wasn’t the judges who would determine the winner on the night, but the audience – and Grant came up trumps. 

Drag superstar Courtney Act came in second alongside her professional dance partner Joshua Keefe. 

It is Grant’s second time at the podium – in 2006, he and his dance partner Amanda Garner won the fourth series of Dancing with the Stars.
