The seventh week of Strictly Come Dancing brought some electric performances with the remaining nine couples taking to the ballroom. Once again the celebrities and their partners brought their best moves to Blackpool Tower ballroom, and we finally saw the first perfect score of the series.

Fleurito’s 40 meant only one thing - Strictly’s toughest judge had dusted off his 10 paddle. That’s right Mr Craig Revel Horwood gave out his first maximum score of the season. The notoriously hard to please judge also uttered his famous phrase ‘fab-u-lous’ when giving feedback after the couple’s performance.

Helen Skelton and Gorka Marquez, and this series’ standout Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystal, were not far behind East with top scores of 39, and 38 respectively.

As always though, praise from the judges and audience doesn’t always mean you are safe as the couples faced Sunday’s dreaded elimination show, during which the contestants with the fewest votes from the public have to compete in a dance-off.

So, who left Strictly Come Dancing in the Week eight dance off? Here’s everything you need to know about this week’s show.
