AFTER claiming the Strictly Come Dancing crown with her celebrity partner Louis Smith, Flavia Cacace returns to the stage with professional partner Vincent Simone for Midnight Tango.

The Argentine Tango specialists her head to head in the final of the top BBC series, with Vincent finishing in fourth place with kids’ TV star Dani Hamer.
