Aliona Vilani QUITS Strictly Come Dancing after winning with Jay

In quite a shocking turn of events, Aliona Vilani has quit BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing after seven years of being a professional dancer on the show. 

Aliona won the competition in last weekend's final, yet took to Twitter today to announce her departure. 

The blonde beauty shared a picture of her and Jay on Twitter and captioned it, "Going into Strictly Come Dancing Series13, I decided that no matter what would happen, it will be my last one."

And in another tweet she added, "After 7 years on Strictly Come Dancing, as my finale, this has been my best Strictly experience ever by a long way!"

The dancer previously won in 2012 with another boyband singer, Harry Judd from McFly.

And as she says 'goodbye' to Strictly, she says 'hello' to Florida. Aliona posted a snap of her and her husband at the airport today before their long haul flight (putting those Jay romance rumours to bed).
