Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Denise Van Outen tops leaderboard again

Denise Van Outen (Strictly Come Dancing)

Denise Van Outen topped the Strictly Come Dancing leaderboard for the second time this weekend.

Up first was Fern Britton and Artem, who got the show off to a rather luke warm start with their Charleston to get 23 points, one down on last week.

Artem said afterwards: "I'm a little disappointed with the judges comments"

Victoria Pendleton was next on stage but "fizzled out" according to Bruno, but Craig was more positive: "I'm beginning to see an actress emerging and it's fantastic."

Michael Vaughan once again struggled, with timing issues and hip action that left Bruno very disappointed!

Former supermodel and (apparently) actress Jerry Hall failed to improve her posture, while Sid's rocky tango saw him get a poor 17 points from the judges.

Kimberley Walsh bounced back from last week's "limp" performance to post her best score yet, followed by Denise Van Outen who once again scored top marks.

Denise's Toy Story inspired Foxtrot earned her top marks from the judges with 32 points out of 40 for a second week running.

Richard Arnold bounced back from being the bottom two last week to score his best marks of the series, while Dani and Vincent matched Kimberley with their Foxtrot.

Closing the show, Nicky scored top mark for his Quickstep while Louis and Flavia failed to win over Len Goodman with his Dirty Dancing routine.

Tomorrow night will see the judges' votes combined with the public votes, and one more celeb will be eliminated.
