Tearful Rhys Stephenson received a perfect score for his routine with partner Nancy Xu, with judge Motsi Mabuse declaring it the ‘best Charleston we have seen’, during Saturday’s Strictly Come Dancing.  

The presenter, 28, and his professional partner, 30, performed the faultless routine to The Charleston by Bob Wilson and his Varsity Rhythm Boys.

Judges Anton Du Beke, 55, Craig Revel Horwood, 56, Motsi Mabuse, 40 and Shirley Ballas, 61, gave the performance glowing reviews before awarding him straight tens.

Motsi dubbed it the ‘best Charleston we have seen’, while Shirley gushed: ‘I have never ever seen a Charleston like that!’

Anton praised: ‘You absolutely smashed the place up, unbelievable!’ and Craig brought out his trademark three syllable ‘a-ma-zing.’    

Meanwhile presenter AJ Odudu, 33 and Kai Widdrington danced the Pasodoble to Game Of Survival by Ruelle, a performance which didn’t wow the judges to the same extent as the previous week, where their Charleston topped the leaderboard with 39.

Wow: Judges Anton Du Beke, 55, Craig Revel Horwood, 56, Motsi Mabuse, 40 and Shirley Ballas, 61, gave the performance glowing reviews before awarding him straight tens

Hard-to-impress Craig said: ‘You needed a stronger Spanish line. I was a little bit disappointed. I felt like you were less connected to one another.’

Providing some words of encouragement among the criticism was Motsi: ‘It was not a good dance for you, I felt the nerves today. I also know you’re a fighter.’ 

They scored 11 lower than the previous week, with 28.   

Tilly Ramsey, 20 and her pro partner Nikita Kuzmin, 23, found themselves in the dance off last week but were keen to put that behind them when they performed the Quickstep to I Won’t Dance by Damita Jo. 

They scored 29, with the judges collectively agreeing there had been some improvements.

‘I do see improvement in your performance skills. That was a really great start to the evening!’ Motsi said.

Journalist Dan Walker scored his first 9 with Nadiya Bychkova, following their American Smooth to King Of The Road by The Proclaimers

‘I don’t get nines!’ he joked, ecstatic about the news.

Craig scored drastically lower, awarding him a 4. ‘It lacked any feeling. It wasn’t for me,’ he said, to which his fellow judges wholeheartedly disagreed. 

‘Give yourself some permission to enjoy it, you are representing the men who have never danced before!’ Shirley praised.    

Elsewhere in Strictly news, it was reported on Saturday that Katya Jones threatened to quit her role on the show after landing in the dance off with partner Adam Peaty.

The professional dancer, 32, is believed to be convinced that the ‘public have it in for her’, after the dance couple were eliminated from the show last Sunday.

Katya is apparently disappointed that she hasn’t finished past the half way mark since she was crowned champion with Joe McFadden in 2017.

The Russian native is reportedly worried that the backlash from her kiss with partner Seann Walsh in 2018 is affecting her scoring with the public.

Earlier on this week, Adam addressed claims that his mother made regarding Strictly Come Dancing being a ‘total fix.’

The Olympic swimmer, 26, was the latest celebrity to be voted off the glitzy dance competition, which resulted in his mum Caroline branding the show a ‘total fix.’

BBC Breakfast’s Charlie Stayt asked Adam during an interview on Thursday his thoughts of the remarks, to which he said: ‘Mums are always going to support their own. She wanted to see me every Saturday night, you know how mums get, bless her.’
