At the end of the night, it was popstar and presenter HRVY who topped the leaderboard.

His jive with pro partner Janette Manrara was branded "absolutely spectacular" by Craig while Motsi said it was "the best first dance I've ever seen".

It scored the best marks of the opening night with 25 points out of a possible 30.

Also getting their Strictly journey off on the right foot were broadcaster Ranvir Singh, boxer Nicola Adams and actress Caroline Quentin who performed a Paso Doble, Quickstep and American Smooth respectively to score 21 points apiece.

At the other end of the leaderboard, Jacqui Smith and Anton Du Beke left us with plenty to remember with their Foxtrot to Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.

They scored just 13 points in total - with Craig awarding only three points - after the routine.

Also finding themselves at the wrong end of the leaderboard was Jamie Laing who returned to the show after injury ruled him out last year.

Shirley said he "showed potential" but his debut routine - a Cha Cha Cha to Think About Things with Karen Hauer - needed more work on the technique.

As usual, there was no public vote or elimination this first weekend but the judges' scores will carry forward to Week 2 where they'll be added to the marks for their second routines.

Week 2 will then see the public given their first chance to vote this year, with viewer votes combined with the judges' marks to decide which celebs face the dance off.

Then the first celebrity will be eliminated in the Sunday results show.
