Strictly Come Dancing: Kelvin Fletcher and Karim Zeroual top the leaderboard

A lot of 10s flying about...

Karim Zeroual and Kelvin Fletcher wowed the judges to find themselves at the top of the Strictly Come Dancing leaderboard.

The CBBC presenter and his professional partner Amy Dowden impressed with their couple's choice dance to Drops of Jupiter, earning them 38 points.

Bruno Tonioli told them: "Brilliant! What I loved is the change in the dynamics how you mixed the movements. It had that freedom of spirit that I loved."

Motsi Mabuse added: "I stand tonight, as a dancer, I'm amazed at what you bring to the show.

"Your technique is unbelievable. I love that you always give 100%. To watch you is a gift."

Meanwhile, Kelvin also danced a couple's choice performance to Do I Love You, with Shirley Ballas branding it "absolutely impeccable".

Bruno said: "That was my cup of tea! It was so original, clever, charming. It was inspired by everyday life and you made it extraordinary."

Craig Revel Horwood added: "I absolutely loved it."

Viewers were somewhat distracted from his dance moves by his trousers this week, though...

Elsewhere, Saffron Barker and AJ Pritchard found themselves in joint bottom place with a samba to Walking On Sunshine, with a score of 26.

Shirley said: "We're in the tenth week now and we're seriously looking for the best of the best.

"Was there a few little issues, yes, here and there. For one of the most difficult dances, I was quite pleased for you."

Alex Scott and Neil Jones' Argentine tango also found them with a score of 26.

Motsi said: "You look like a dancer, you behave like a dancer."

Chris Ramsey and Karen Hauer scored an acceptable 31 for their Paso Doble.

Shirley told him: "How you go from being jovial and bright to being that arrogant and angry. But generally overall, I think you executed it with flare."

Motsi shared: "I'm so proud of you and you should be so proud of yourself. I absolutely adored it."
