Joe McFadden doesn't have a job.

The 42-year-old actor was crowned the winner of this year's "Strictly Come Dancing" and, despite winning over the hearts of the nation, he has admitted he's currently unemployed after his alter-ego Raf di Lucca was killed off in "Holby City" last week.

Speaking after winning the ballroom and latin show over the weekend, he said: "I am [unemployed]. I've just finished two jobs, one after the other. I'm very optimistic about the future, things are looking up. I'm feeling really good and looking forward to having a really good rest over Christmas.

"I'm going to lie in a dark room for about a week and sleep. I have no idea. It would be lovely to put all the dancing into practice, it would be a shame to let all of that go."

And the handsome star is hoping that his fancy footwork will help bag him a girlfriend.

He said recently: "We filmed it a couple of months back. It has been hard to keep a secret because I've been doing lots of interviews for "Strictly" and people have been asking me about "Holby".

"I always dreaded the day when I would leave. It has been four years since I've done a play or been on stage. "Strictly" has certainly given me a hunger."

Just two weeks ago, Joe revealed that he wanted to leave the medical drama in an "explosive storyline", but told fans they had a little longer of him on screen.

He said at the time: "If and when it does happen it would be nice to have the big exit, as an actor no-one wants to leave in the back of a taxi even if it means being killed off. And obviously a big stunt would be brilliant!"
