Gymnast Fragapane and her partner AJ can be happy with their performance however, with Bruno Tonioli awarding them their first 10 of the series for their Lion King-inspired salsa.

In the first week without Strictly fan favourite Ed Balls, Judge Rinder finished bottom of the Strictly leaderboard – but with the viewer vote still to come, he could yet survive another week.

The results will be announced this Sunday on BBC1, with the show starting at 7.20pm.
