All eyes were on comedian Seann Walsh and his pro dancer partner Katya Jones last night on Strictly Come Dancing following their kiss scandal.
The show’s producers held the couple until the penultimate slot, ensuring we had to watch the whole show in order to see them. Aside from a cheeky mention by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman at the top of the show, nothing was said about the week’s scandal.
Stacey Dooley and her partner Kevin Clifton topped the leaderboard for the first time this series, narrowly beating Ashley Roberts and Pasha Kovalev. At the bottom was Katie Piper and Gorka Marquez, closely followed by Kate Silverton and Aljaž Škorjanec.
The leaderboard for the evening was:
Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton – 33
Ashley Roberts and Pasha Kovalev – 32
Faye Tozer and Giovanni Pernice – 29
Vick Hope and Graziano Di Prima – 29
Seann Walsh and Katya Jones – 28
Danny John-Jules and Amy Dowden – 27
Dr Ranj Singh and Janette Manrara – 27
Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse – 26
Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell – 26
