Judge Rinder just stormed the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom

Judge Rinder took to the dancefloor on Strictly Come Dancing tonight and it was pretty epic.

Robert Rinder and his partner Oksana Platero danced an outrageous Cha Cha to 'Mercy' by Duffy to win a mixed bag of comments from the judges.

Craig Revel Horwood complained: “It looked like you’d have excessive collagen procedures.... The open trout pout darling, you need to look at that."

Darcey Bussell reacted: “It was extraordinary, that was the wildest surprise I think I've ever had!"

Len Goodman quipped: "If entertainment is a crime then you’re guilty”."

And finally Bruno Tonioli commented: “I think the jury is hung, a pace like this requires scrutiny!"

Craig actually gave his highest sore of the night (up to that point) with six points, matched by both Len and Bruno making for a total of 25 with Darcy's 7.

But away from the judges, Rinder's moves - and his body - immediately won over the hearts of most viewers with the ridiculous routine to kick off this year's live shows.



Have we found our Strictly winner already?!

Well the final is a long way off for now, we've still got the first half of this weekend's opening live show at 6:30PM on Saturday night on BBC One.
