Newly-crowned Strictly Come Dancing champion Tom Chambers' coveted title was his second celebration in a matter of days - after taking delivery of a new Fiat 500 last week.

The former Holby City star, together with professional dance partner Camilla Dallerup, was on top of the world on Saturday night after wowing ballroom fans across the UK with a stunning final routine to win the TV crown. But just the day before, Tom was dancing for joy following the arrival of his new Fiat 500 1.4 16v Lounge in fabulous Funk White.

Fiat fan Tom, who already owns an original Fiat 500, will use his new car to travel the country when he joins the Strictly Come Dancing live show early next year. Its award-winning blend of comfort, style and fuel economy will certainly earn a maximum score from the Cha-cha-cha champ.

"What an amazing last few weeks," says Tom. "I recently got married, I've won Strictly Come Dancing and now I have one of my favourite cars to drive. This is a fantastic finale to the year.

"I have always loved Fiat 500s and bought the old one two years ago for my wife Clare. I am really pleased with this new car and am looking forward to driving home to Derbyshire in it for Christmas. It's the perfect end to a brilliant 2008."

Available with a choice of three frugal, ultra-low emissions, Euro 5-ready engines: 69 bhp 1.2-litre and 100 bhp 1.4-litre petrol, or 75 bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet turbodiesel, the new Fiat 500 can be ordered in three different trim levels - Pop, Sport and Lounge.

With a starting price of just £7,929 on-the-road, the new Fiat 500 represents outstanding value for money and positions the car well below benchmark rivals. The car being driven by Tom costs only £10,671 - a price that includes air conditioning and alloy wheels as standard.
