Denise Van Outen tops Strictly Come Dancing 2012 leaderboard

Denise Van Outen

Denise Van Outen has topped the Strictly Come Dancing 2012 leaderboard for the second week in a row.

The West End performer scored the highest score of the series with four nines from the judges for a Paso Doble.

Kimberley Walsh was in second spot and earned herself a new nickname from Len Goodman and her best score of the series with 34 points for her Waltz.

Louis Smith was back on form with 33 points from the panel for his waltz, while Victoria Pendleton overcame her problems in training to get 30 points from the judges with her quickstep.

On the other hand, Michael Vaughan went from his top score to land bottom of the leaderboard with 26 points after his Salsa to Jackson 5 hit I Want You Back.

Also struggling with the salsa this week was Fern Britton, but she managed to achieve her highest score of the series with 27 points, however it wasn't enough to avoid the bottom two.

It was the fourth time in six weeks that Denise had topped the leaderboard, yet it's Louis Smith who remains the favourite to win the show.

The public now get their say ahead of tomorrow's elimination!
