The dancers have performed, the scores are in and Strictly viewers have an anxious wait ahead of the dreaded Dance Off and elimination!


Danny Mac and his partner Oti Mabuse danced away with the highest score of the night, nabbing two 10s from Bruno and Len for their Argentine Tango.

Judge Rinder & Oksana33 4

The pair were closely followed by last week's leaderboard toppers Louise and Kevin, who charmed the judges with glittery Hollywood American Smooth to the tune of Big Spender.

But languishing at the bottom of the table were Ed Balls and Katya Jones, who stole the show with a stunning salsa set to Psy's Gangnam Style.
