She's donated four dresses, and they're going up for auction from December 23.

She's not only the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 winner - Joanne Clifton has been a hospice ambassador since last year, and she's donated four dance dresses from her personal collection for us to auction!

The Grimsby-born champion dancer has donated three show gowns and one rehearsal dress.


Jane Whenham-White, head of income generation at the hospice, said: “Since Strictly Come Dancing returned to our screens weeks ago, every weekend we have been glued to the television and rooting for Joanne. It was such a thrill to hear her name announced as the winner, and we are all over the moon for her.

“Jo is a lovely woman and her family are very kind and generous, having been supporters of the hospice and it’s work for many years, so we were delighted when she was officially appointed as a St Andrew’s ambassador in April last year.

"She pledged to do whatever she could to help us, and she has brought out the stops by donating four wonderful dresses from her personal collection for us to auction. They are the ultimate memorabilia for ardent Strictly fans, so we hope Joanne’s own generosity is rewarded through the generosity of bidders.”




The dresses Joanne has donated are from her own personal collection, which she has worn during her high-profile career. The lots are:


  • A beautiful red gown with a high neck, long sleeves and satin flared skirt, decorated with red diamante beads.


  • A black and white dress with cut-out panels in neutral fabric, heavily decorated with diamante beads on the bodice.


  • A black crepe dress used for rehearsals. It has a flared skirt and a low-cut boat-shaped neck.


  • A lime green feathery gown with a high neckline and low-cut back, heavily decorated with beads.
