Comedian Robert Webb has won Let's Dance for Comic Relief with his performance of What A Feeling from the 1980s film Flashdance.

The Peep Show actor beat off stiff competition from fellow comedians Keith Lemon and Paddy McGuinness and their routine from Dirty Dancing.

Webb's performance, which saw him dress-up in a black leotard and wig, became an instant favourite of the judges in the first round and he started the final as The Firm favourite to claim the prize.

On Saturday night, head judge Anton Du Beke, from Strictly Come Dancing, said he wished there could have been a tie between the two 80s inspired dances but fellow judges Denise Van Outen and Michael McIntyre both supported Webb's performance.

Speaking after his victory, Webb said: "I fell fantastic. It's been marvellous, it's been like falling in love with myself all over again."

His dance routine has become an instant classic on YouTube, with almost 400,000 people watching a clip of his first round performance.
