Marti Pellow and Hannah Waterman were victorious in last night's final of Just The Two Of Us.

The former Wet Wet Wet singer and EastEnders actress were named the winners following a close-run public vote between them and the other two couples in the final.

Brendan Cole and Beverly Knight impressed the judges with their version of the Rolling Stones Brown Sugar, earning themselves two top scores of ten and 36 points overall.

Sarah Brightman and Mark ButCher also managed to gain a top score of ten from judge Tito, but their swing version of the classic song Moon River netted them 34 points from all four judges.

Although Pellow and Waterman's I Can't Make You Love Me only earned them 30 points, their second performance of Rod Stewart's Have I Told You Lately managed to win the hearts of the viewers in the public vote.

But it was only by the smallest of margins that they won  at one point there was only one per cent between the couples.

This series of Just The Two Of Us will No Doubt be remembered for the fantastic (and at times, not-so-fantastic) performances of the eight celebrities and their professional partners  most notably those of EastEnders' oldie rocker John Bardon.

After being voted off the show last night he joked: "At least I can get a bit of a kip."
