A great series though it has to be said!

After a running since the beginning of January, last night saw the conclusion of Dancing With The Stars on RTÉ One.

The grand finale saw Carl Mullan, Suzanne Jackson Brooke Scullion, and Damien McGinty compete for the glitterball trophy - but only one could come out on top.

At the end of it all 2FM breakfast presenter Carl Mullan and his dance partner Emily Barker were crowned the winners.

Contrary to the voting system in the last few weeks of the show running, the vote for the overall winner was down entirely to the audience. So while the pressure was on for them to perform their dances perfectly, the judges had no say in the final vote.

The standard was high and the competition was tough but Carl Mullan came out the firm favourite at the end.

Speaking in interviews immediately after the winner, Carl seemed to be completely in shock.

"Thank you so much for all the love and support online and in the streets" he said after thanking his wife Aisling and his family for being his "rock" throughout the series.

While Carl was immensely popular (and that shows in the final vote!) there was undoubtedly some people online who weren't too happy with the result.

Some complained that the show has been reduced to a "popularity contest" rather than being based on the contestant's genuine dancing abilities.

Meanwhile there was plenty of support for Carl Mullan online too, with many recognising that he was the most improved dancer of the series.

We're with Paul, we think after this year there should definitely be another series!
