Stacey Dooley has reportedly lost the Strictly Glitterball trophy during the afterparty.
She and partner Kevin Clifton lifted the trophy after weeks of gruelling training, and after Kevin lost four finals over his time on the show.
But it turned out the jubilation was too much for her when they hit the boozy afterparty, where Stacey allegedly lost the trophy just hours after winning it.
Strictly star Dr Ranj Singh told The Telegraph’s Talking Strictly podcast: "Here’s a little secret – so after the after party, I may have snuck a picture with Stacey’s trophy.

"Then there was a message on the WhatsApp group yesterday saying ‘Has anyone seen my trophy? I left it in the room with all the bags and now I can’t find it.’"
Dr Ranj knew he hadn’t nabbed the trophy, and asked her whether she left it in the cab on the way home, but sadly she didn’t believe this was the case.
He continued: "I was like ‘How many drinks did I have?’"
Luckily, this was not the REAL trophy, as Stacey revealed on This Morning that the real one stays with Strictly and is taken off them ‘"after two minutes," so it was her own, mini version of the trophy.

On This Morning on the Monday after she won, she revealed: "I left at 5am and I don’t even booze. I was showing off on the stage with my trophy."
Similarly to this trophy not being the real one, Stacey also confirmed her "knickers flash" was also not quite what people thought, as it was actually a body suit fitted underneath her dress, and her real knickers were underneath.
She told Phillip Schofield and Rochelle Humes: "It’s like a built in bodysuit. They weren’t really my actual knickers.
"I didn’t even realise. When I went into wardrobe the girls were like ‘Stacey, sorry, you were showing your area’.
"It’s only Saturday night, it’s not the end of the world."
