Danielle Hope, who pipped runner-up contestant Sophie Evans, also revealed that she is surprised she didn't cry on the show.
Speaking to TV Times, she said: "That pause before it was announced was unbearable - I thought I was going to be sick!
"I was so sure Sophie had got it. I didn't expect [it] at all. When I heard my name, I don't know why I didn't cry, I think I was too shocked!"
The star added: "Andrew was lovely. He said he was really pleased for me and couldn't wait for us to start working together."
