The current series of 'Dancing with the Stars' came to an end last night, when 2FM DJ Carl Mullan and his professional dance partner Emily Barker were crowned winners.

Mullan triumphed in a close-run final that saw Derry's Brooke Scullion - a favourite from the first show - place as one of the runners-up.

The other finalists were Suzanne Jackson and Damian McGinty, but Mullan and Barker wowed both the judges and the public with their routines - which included dancing the Paso Doble to U2's 'Beautiful Day'.

An emotional Mullan said "Thank you everybody that voted for us... I want to thank everyone who has supported us on the street and online.

"I’m so buzzing. I’m so happy we have won it for you, Emily Barker. You deserve this so much."

The online reaction wasn't quite as upbeat, with many paying tribute to the DJ's progress but claiming that the best dancer did not win.

Nevertheless, when all is said and done the public voted the duo as winners - so congrats to Carl and Emily!
