The 'Broken Heels' and her professional partner Gorka Marquez wowed with an electric performance to 'Finally' by Cece Peniston, which the judges branded "fabulous".

Craig Revel Horwood told her it was "absolutely fab-u-lous" whilst Darcey Bussell admitted she "was jealous and wanted to be at your private disco".

She praised the pair for the "great details" and promised she would "get into Bruno's speedos" if she didn't make it to the final.

Bruno Tonioli told them: "It might be December but it felt like mid summer in Puerto Rico. I love you!"

Alexandra also impressed with her Viennese waltz, which Bruno described as "elegant and classy".

He added: "But more than that, it had a dream like quality. It felt like the softest, silkiest pashmina. Brilliant."

Joe McFadden and Katya Jones also impressed with their American Smooth and Argentine Tango.

Of their American Smooth, Darcey said: "You did bring plenty of glamour, lovely sweeping lines. Just what I wanted. Thank you."

Whilst commenting on their Argentine Tango, head judge Shirley Ballas praised the pair for their "spectacular" dance.

It was a good night for Debbie McGee and Giovanni Pernice, whose jive "shocked" Darcey.

She said: "Debbie, I have to say that was fast and sweet. Your agility ... I'm shocked. It's extraordinary."

Unfortunately for Mollie King and AJ Pritchard, their Samba didn't get them off to a good start.

Craig told them: "All the rolls looked really awkward. You weren't actually dancing to the rhythm. That wasn't great darling."

However, the pair redeemed themselves with a beautifully emotional waltz to 'Angel' by Sarah McLachlan.

Gemma Atkinson and Aljaz Skorjanec were praised for their "determination and passion" for their tango whilst Bruno said their rhumba was "sensual".

'Strictly Come Dancing' continues on Sunday night (10.12.17).
