LAST night Penny O'Brien and Adam Crichton won the much-loved Strictly Inverness charity dance competition.

They took home first place after two brilliant performances where they danced against seven other couples, including Adam's brother Scott.

They were followed by second place Debbie Campbell and Michael Murray and third place Carly Fraser and Scott Crichton.

Judging was done with a special helping hand this year as BBC's Strictly Come Dancing star Flavia Cacace-Mistry who congratulated all the dancers on their hard work.

The pair have been busy raising money for the Highland Hospice and Inverness Ice Centre and trained for five months for the show.

In total, the dancers have raised more than £180,000 to be split between the causes.

They said they could not believe it and will be back next year for a special performance!
