But first, let’s take a look at the leaderboard which reflects an eventful evening on the Strictly dancefloor with plenty of tens dished out by the judging panel. 

Perched at the top is Louise Redknapp whose stunning Argentine tango won her and partner Kevin Clifton three top scores from Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli with Craig Revel-Horwood the only judge to dock a point. 

  Score Points
Louise & Kevin 39 9
Danny & Oti 38 8
Daisy & Aljaz 34 7
Ore & Joanne 34 7
Judge Rinder & Oksana 33 6
Claudia & AJ 33 6
Laura & Giovanni 32 5
Greg & Natalie 32 5
Ed & Katya 27 4

The pair were closely followed by Danny and Oti who opened the show with a jive to Little Richard’s Long Tall Sally, earning them their first 10s of the competition for a score of 38 – their highest yet. 

But languishing at the bottom of the table were Ed & Katya who – despite notching up a total of 27, their best score to date – couldn’t bag more than four judging points with their quickstep to Help! by The Beatles.
