 Strictly Come Dancing fans were gutted when they noticed something very different about Jonnie Peacock during tonight's final

If you hadn’t already noticed, fans were gutted that the Paralympian had cut off his long flowing hair.

And they made sure Jonnie knew all about it.


A second wrote: “WHY'S JONNIE CUT HIS HAIR OFF?”

Another commented: “Can we discuss the fact that @JonniePeacock has cut his hair? WHERE IS THE MANE JONNIE? #StrictlyFinal.”

Jonnie was the eight celebrity to leave this series of the BBC dancing show.

At the time he wowed fans with his long, flowing hair and gained a legion of fans after strutting his stuff on the dancefloor.

Jonnie and his partner Oti Mabuse managed to make it to the show's famous episode at Blackpool's Tower Ballroom but left after losing the dance off to Debbie McGee.

Speaking about his experience on the show, Jonnie said: “I think it’s been an absolute honour to be the first disabled person and I want to thank each and every one of you for judging me as an equal. That’s what I want.

“You’ve been critical with me and I want that criticism; and I think that’s fantastic and hope it paves the way for more people to come through and I think they may be able to stick their bum under a bit better than me.

“I need to say an absolutely gigantic thank you to this woman for pushing me because she knows what I’m capable of.

“Her choreography has been has been outstanding, and for putting up with me, pinching me, biting me - thank you so much.”

Joe McFadden, Gemma Atkinson, Alexandra Burke and Debbie McGee made it through to the final four after thirteen weeks of gruelling training.

This year was the first year that Kevin Clifton didn’t make it to the finals, having been knocked out two weeks ago alongside his celebrity partner, Susan Calman.

Regardless, both Susan and Kevin were there cheering on the remaining contestants as the whole cast returned for the finale.

The finale marked the end of Shirley Ballas’ first year as head judge after taking over from Len Goodman, something she has revealed was one “beautiful sparkling journey” for her.

However, after dividing fans for her tough critiques, the jury is still out over whether or not she’ll return for another run next year.

Speaking to The Sun ahead of the finale, she said: ““Just like the voting, nothing is for sure.

“Let’s get this season finished first.”

The season has proven to not be short on scandal – as devoted fans have created a challenge out of a stunning lift done by Joe and Katya and become convinced that Mollie King and AJ Pritchard are a couple.

It has also seen the marriage of professional dancers Kevin and Karen Clifton hit the rocks, while rumours of a romance between Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez has continued throughout the series run.
