Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Lisa Riley tops the weekend leaderboard

Lisa Riley (Strictly Come Dancing)

Lisa Riley was a surprise stand out in tonight's second Strictly Come Dancing 2012 live show

Kimberley Walsh opened the show with an energetic cha cha, winning 28 points from the judges and the nickname of Nimble Kimble from Len Goodman.

He told the Girls Aloud star: "Kimberley, I’m going to call you nimble Kimble, it was clean and it was precise, so it was lovely.

“Your legs have got to be a little big stronger, but you can’t win Strictly Come Dancing in Week One, but you’ve made a good impression.”

Sid Owen followed with a respectable 26 points for his Waltz, while Johnny Ball struggled and scored just 17 points from the judges.

Model Jerry Hall "took minimal to a whole new level" with her cha cha, but still left the dance floor with 18 points.

Closing the show was Olympic star Louis Smith, who achieved 27 with professional partner Flavia Cacace.

But Lisa Riley was the stand out of the night, scoring the highest marks of 30 points with her fun and camp cha cha with Robin Windsor.

Even Craig was won over, saying: "Three words darling: you can dance."

Fortunately for the stars, no one leaves this week, with those scores being carried forward to next week's show.
