Luke Jacobz WINS Dancing With The Stars – with former victor Bec Hewitt missing out on taking the crown a second time
On Sunday’s finale of Dancing With The Stars Australia, Luke Jacobz took home the Mirrorball.
History failed to repeat for Bec Hewitt, with the former Home and Away star missing out, after her then-dancer partner, Michael Mizner, won the series in 2004.
It was a close competition, with judge Helen Richey admitting there was ‘almost nothing’ between the quality of the performers on the night.

When it came down to it, Bec Hewitt and her dance partner Craig Monley made in into the final alongside Luke Jacobz and his partner Lily Cornish.
Judge Mark Wilson heaped praise on Luke Jacobz and Lily Cornish, saying he had no idea who they would top last week’s Paso Doble – but they had.
The pair were awarded a total of 38 from the judges, with two tens and two nines.
Bec and Craig however smashed that result, with a series of perfect tens from the judges for a total of 40.
It was not enough to get them over the line, with the pair coming in second after the audience vote.
Luke said after his win: ‘To win is honestly the greatest achievement of my life. To experience it with Jorja, who is by far the most creative and talented person I know, is like a dream.’
