The winners of Inverness’ most popular dance contest have been announced.

Shyreen Fyffe and Jason Kelman were crowned as Strictly Inverness 2024 overall winners at the end of the grand finale tonight.

The duo, who raised £18,700 in aid of the Highland Hospice and Inverness Ice Centre through their fundraising efforts, were still struggling to believe they won the competition.

“It’s the most amazing feeling,” Shyreen said.

“When my mum was here at the hospice, in 2021 I said to her that I would do Strictly. So this one is for my mum. “I think she would be really proud!”

Jason said: “It’s literally unbelievable. Two weeks ago we were saying that if we danced well enough we might have gotten through to the final.

“It’s surreal, it’s unbelievable!”

BBC Strictly Giovanni Pernice, who was the guest judge for the night, commented: “It’s been fantastic. I think the competition has been great and its so good to see it all go to a good cause.

“It’s all about taking part and having fun.

“Inverness has become my second home since the competition. It’s felt nice to be upgraded to a judge in the competition, that’s for sure.”
