'STRICTLY Come Dancing' duo Flavia Cacace and Vincent Simone have been recognised for their toned bottoms as they were named winners of the Rear of the Year award.

The pair – the first professional twosome to win the annual accolade – were "delighted" to have their pert bums celebrated and were looking forward to the reactions of their Strictly colleagues.

"They'll be devastated. They're going to be so jealous. I can't wait for them to find out," Vincent said.

Flavia (34) joked that she and Vincent would have to pass on tips to the other Strictly professionals to get them in the running for the award next year.

"I think they'll be laughing," she said.

Jealous

The petite dancer – famous for her Argentine Tango with Vincent – said dancing is what makes their bottoms award-worthy, and she said she believes it will continue to keep them well-honed.

"I think we will always dance, whether we can actually still perform full on, we will always do some form of dance, even if it's social or teaching, so hopefully that will keep them nice and compact," she said.

Vincent (35) joked that he had been waiting for this award "all my life",  saying: "I think it was about time."
