She continued: “What I’m very impressed with and what I’m realising is I never knew how long your legs were.

“To keep them coordinated with the upper half of your body is no mean feat.

Shirley discovered your legs, I discovered your smile!

“Simple choreography which you executed absolutely spectacularly.”

In addition, Craig Revel Horwood said: “I’ve got to say it was too stop and start for my liking.

“Also on the basic Charleston step, which you did many, you need to try and kick the back of your heel up a little bit more as well.”

He added: “The characterisation was very good although I thought you could go a little bit more over the top.

“You have wonderful elevation in your jumps. Such great height, it’s brilliant. Well done.”
