“The money raised has not been counted yet, but this year I have raised more than £40,000 for my charities, which is an amazing amount.”

Cassidy, who won The People’s Strictly in 2015, said: “I got to do a Q & A with Louis , who is a really great guy - a great abassador for the city.

“The Cathedral itself is incredble - one of the most gorgeous buildings in the country, so it was an incredible day.

“The great thing about ballroom dancing is no-one goes to find ouut who is the best - they go to have fun, and everyone was doing that. “
