But despite winning rave reviews from the judges, they only scored two tens and two nines and viewers are calling it a fix.

Bruno called the dance “extraordinary” while Craig Revel Horwood, who gave Alexandra and Gorka a nine, simply said: “You never cease to amaze me, that was incredible.”

Darcey Bushell continued the gushing saying she “loved the passion” of the dance while Shirley Ballas added: “I thought it was superb.”

However, when it came to scoring only Shirley and Bruno gave the dancers tens with Craig and Darcey awarding them nines.
