And as for Alex and Neil's performance, the pair had the daunting task of being the first to hit the dance floor on the first of the live Strictly episodes this series.

Dancing the quickstep to the classic 'I Get a Kick Out of You,' they earned 21 points and new judge Motsi Mabuse claimed they were "dangerous".

"You look comfortable in the hold with Neil so I think we just need to work on your presentation, so [you] know it's a show 'I've got to put it on'.

“Then you've got all the goods we need, girl. You're dangerous," Motsi said.
