It was a tense weekend on Strictly Come Dancing last week, with a shocking dance-off which saw Layton Williams and Angela Scanlon perform to save their place in the competition.


In a moment no one was expecting, it was time for Angela to leave the competition, despite her best efforts in the dance off and receiving her highest score of the season just one week prior.

Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke all voted to save Layton, noting that it was an incredibly close call, with Anton saying neither of the pairs danced their best.

Elsewhere in the competition was Annabel Croft, who received her first 10 of the season for her paso doble to España Cañi by Trad. Thank you, Anton!

The 10 also helped Annabel and Johannes to receive their highest score of the run so far, and as this is Strictly Come Dancing, could Annabel continue to rise to the top to become an unlikely champion?

His performance received a standing ovation from the audience, and from judges Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse.

Shirley said the dance was "very charismatic" and had some of the "most beautiful, true movements through the body", adding that it was Brazier's best number to date.
