Danny Mac scores perfect marks for fabulous Charleston on Strictly's Blackpool special


Danny Mac's Charleston won him the best marks of Strictly Come Dancing 2016 so far with a perfect 40.

It was the latest live show tonight as the remaining seven dancers took to the ballroom once again.

But this week was the Blackpool special with all the couples performing live at the iconic Tower Ballroom.

Danny Mac and pro partner Oti Mabuse danced the Charleston to ‘Puttin’ On The Ritz’ by Gregory Porter.

Darcey Bussell commented: "The speed of it! There was a step to every beet of music. Unbelievable. It was actually difficult to distinguish who is not the professional dancer now."

Bruno Tonioli said: "That really was a table topping showstopper. It was like watching a Broadway show, it was that standard. Technique, performance, the content... it was pure good dancing."

Len Goodman added: "It was almost choreography overload. The thing I like about dances is when they're on the edge. You held it, it was fantastic."

Craig Revel Horwood concluded: "One word, three syllables.. Fab-u-lous."

When it came to the scores it was 10s all around as the pair scored the first perfect 40 of the series.

But will it be enough to keep the pair in the competition and see them through to next weekend?

As always, the judges' scores from tonight's dances will be combined with the results of the public vote to help determine the bottom two dancers in Sunday's results show.

Those two celebrity couples will have to dance again for the judges in Sunday night's results show at 7:15PM on BBC One where one of them will be eliminated.
