What a feeling!

On Saturday night British comedian Robert Webb won the charity Let's Dance competition for Red Nose day with his performance of this iconic Irene Cara Flashdance dance

Comedian Robert Webb won the public's heart with a leotard-clad performance of What A Feeling from '80s film Flashdance.
He narrowly beat Keith Lemon & Paddy McGuinness to the title of Let's Dance For Comic Relief Champion despite an impassioned performance from the pair of the famous final dance of another film favourite, Dirty Dancing.
After four weeks of tense heats and dance-offs the public made the final decision with a telephone vote, the proceeds of which will raise even more money for Comic Relief.
As he accepted the trophy he said: "I feel fantastic. It's been marvellous, it's been like falling in love with myself all over again."
Head panelist and Strictly Come Dancing favourite Anton Du Beke suspended his exacting judgement to heap enthusiastic praise on all the dancers' efforts. He said: "I wish we could have a big old tie, personally."
But guest panelists Denise Van Outen and Michael McIntyre both backed Webb as winner.
The show, hosted by Claudia Winkleman and Steve Jones, saw turns from sports stars Martin Offiah and Denise Lewis in an exotic Bollywood routine, The Bill actors Lisa Maxwell and Patrick Robinson doing Riverdance, TV presenters Dick and Dom reprising the Blues Brothers and Jo Brand as Britney Spears."

This is some performance, eh?
