A momentous 24 hours in politics draws to a close. It's the first Christmas election in almost a century. And it's the dawn of a political world: gone are the days of hung parliaments, of knife-edge votes, and of unstable, wafer-thin majorities.
Whatever your political stripes, there's undeniably a more stable situation here in Westminster. But Parliament still faces huge challenges in the weeks and months to come.
So what happened?
The exit poll dropped. It predicted a Conservative majority (correct) and suggested the Tories would get 368 MPs (only three out).
As results poured in through the night, the electoral map began re-forming.
It took until just before 15:00 for all the votes to be counted. The result? An 80-seat Conservative majority - the party's largest since 1987.
Here's how things shaped up:

Who said what today?
- Boris Johnson said the result will bring "closure" to the Brexit debate, telling the nation to "let the healing begin" in his first speech of this Parliament.
- Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would not lead the party into the next election, and said he did "everything he could" to get Labour into power.
- The Lib Dem's Jo Swinson said she was "devastated" by the result but insisted she was "proud" to have been the first woman to lead her party, adding: "One of the realities of smashing glass ceilings is that a lot of broken glass comes down on your head"
- SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon said the "overwhelming" victory of her party in Scotland "renews, reinforces and strengthens" the mandate for a second Scottish independence referendum, saying Mr Johnson had "no right" to stand in the way of indyref2.
What's next for...
- Labour Mr Corbyn said he would stay on as leader during a "process of reflection". He said it was up to the National Executive, the ruling body of the party, to decide when he would go, adding it was likely a new leader would be selected in the early part of next year.
- The Lib Dems Sir Ed Davey and Baroness Sal Brinton will act as co-leaders of the party, after Jo Swinson resigned. The party will hold a new leadership contest in the new year.
- The Conservatives Boris Johnson will be meeting newly elected MPs tomorrow, before announcing a cabinet reshuffle early next week. He plans to bring his EU withdrawal agreement before Parliament within the next week or so.
- The SNP Our Scotland editor Sarah Smith says the SNP will insist its result is a thumping endorsement of a second referendum. It's a debate that can only escalate as we leave the EU, Sarah says. Read her full blog here.
