The comedian began to get choked up as he paid special mention to pro partner Oti who was left in tears beside him.
“I have the most extraordinary teacher, the most extraordinary dancer,” he continued before a raucous round of applause drowned him out.
Oti’s sister and Strictly judge Motsi Mabuse was also left in tears after watching her sibling accept the award with Bill.
