Dragon’s Den star Sara Davies and Aljaz Skorjanec have been putting in consistently strong performances each week and will be hoping for more success on Saturday with a Quickstep to Dolly Parton’s 9 To 5.

The EastEnders actress and her professional partner left the judges gobsmacked after they took to the floor with a sexy Tango to Ed Sheeran’s new track, Shivers, for the Halloween special. 

Rose, the show’s first deaf contestant, gave it her all on the dance floor on Saturday night and the couple nailed the flawless tango, filled with fancy footwork, ‘out of this world’ technique and plenty of attitude.

The incredible dance left head judge Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse on their feet, while Craig Revel Horwood simply said that Rose ‘smashed it’.

Much to Rose and Giovanni’s delight, Anton Du Beke said: ‘I’ve written a few things down, and they all basically say perfect. Congratulations!’

While Shirley gushed: ‘You are absolutely brilliant! One of the best parts of that tango is how you keep your body closed and your head to the right and that little extra shoulder that went in. Wasn’t she fabulous darling.’

Meanwhile, a particularly excited Motsi said: ‘I’ve been sitting and judging for 14 years, I’ve been a couple of numbers, but this one will remain epic. This was absolutely one amazing dance.

‘From the beginning, your acting skills, the way you two dance together, the technique in the dance, this was out of this world!’

Rose was dubbed the ‘Queen of the tango’ by Tess Daly, while the judges were true to their praise and each awarded the couple 10 marks, giving them a total of 40 – the earliest a perfect score has ever been given out in the show’s history. 

Strictly Come Dancing will return on Saturday 6th November at 6:45pm, with the results show on Sunday 7th November at 7:15pm on BBC One.
