Daisy Lowe topped this weekend's opening Strictly Come Dancing 2016 scoreboard this evening.

It was the second live show as the remaining nine of the 15 celebrity contestants performed for the very first time in the ballroom with their pro partners.

Louise Redknapp & Kevin Clifton were first up and their natural themed Jive floated Len Goodman's boat.

Melvin Odoom & Janette Manrara were net up as they Loco In Acapulco with a Cha Cha but Craig Revel Horwood concluded: "Not your dance I'm afraid."

Things got emotional for Daisy Lowe as she Waltzed with Aljaž Škorjanec to 'Unforgettable' by Nat King Cole with the routine scoring a nine from Len Goodman, topping the weekend's scores with a total of 32.

Next, Len branded Danny Mac a "contender" after he and Oti Mabuse put everything into their Cha Cha to 'Cake by the Ocean' by DNCE

Tamika Empson "owned the stage" according to Craig as she danced the Paso Doble to 'El Gato Montes' by Ramon Cortez and 'Y Viva Espana' by Sylvia with her pro partner Gorka Marquez.

Anastacia and Brendan Cole's Cha Cha to 'Lady Marmalade' by Christina Aguilera, Mya, Lil' Kim and Pink was "boring on indecent" and Craig LOVED it while Darcey Bussell couldn't get over her splits.

Ed Balls & Katya Jones's Waltz to 'Are You Lonesome Tonight' by Elvis Presley received more than a few critiques to leave the pair bottom on the leaderboard but Darcey told him there were "glimmers" of potential.

Claudia Fragapane & AJ Pritchard's Cha Cha to 'What Makes You Beautiful' by One Direction was full of tricks but they didn't impress Len while Craig described the Cha Chaing as "stompy".

Closing the show, Will Young & Karen Clifton's Tango to 'Let's Dance' by David Bowie was branded "excellent" by Len and the acting left Bruno Tonioli overwhelmed.
