The Pussycat Dolls star wowed with a stunning dance to 'Orange Coloured Sky' by Natalie Cole, earning them an impressive spot at the top of the leaderboard with one mark off a perfect 40.

Head judge Shirley Ballas called it an "exquisite, classic Foxtrot" whilst Craig Revel Horwood was impressed that it was a "proper Foxtrot" with no tricks or gimmicks.

But Faye Tozer and Giovanni Pernice were hot on their heels with a stunning Tango to 'Call Me' by Blondie, and Darcey Bussell loved the "intensity, passion and precision".

Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton had Couples' Choice this week, a mix of Street and Commercial to Alicia Keys' 'Empire State of Mind'. Fighting back from a rib injury, Stacey wowed the judges with Bruno Tonioli praised the television host for acting and dancing it like a pro.

Danny John-Jules and Amy Dowden found themselves at the bottom of the leaderboard with their Quickstep to 'Freedom' by Pharrell Williams. Whilst their performance went perfect in rehearsal, there were many mistakes on the dancefloor. The judges praised Danny's ability as a showman to cover the mistakes up but couldn't do anything but score him low. Bruno pointed out how he started on the wrong foot and carried that through for most of the dance. However, Darcey tried to put a positive spin on proceedings, praising the "light and effortlessness" in the bits that went well.

'Strictly Come Dancing' returns on Sunday evening (04.11.18).
