Opening up on the routine, Greg said: “I got through it – it was touch and go, it was very emotional, I did not mess up, neither of us fell over and neither of us died.

“That is a success in my books.”

Meanwhile, Karen praised her partner for his incredible lifts during the sequence.

The professional dancer said: “It was gorgeous and he’s so good at lifts…

“That night he nailed every single one of those lifts.”

But some viewers weren’t convinced by their partnership.

What did Strictly fans say?

According to some, Greg and Karen showed a lack of body language.

They noted that the dancer was sitting at a distance from her partner.

On Twitter, one said: “#Strictly @karen_hauer and Greg on #ItTakesTwo very negative body language. She doesn’t like him…”

The user continued: “Could almost see her flinching when he put his arm on the back of the sofa. He’s creepy…”

A second speculated: “I’m fascinated with body language (or lack of it) between Greg and Karen #guarded #ItTakesTwo.”

A third added: “#ItTakesTwo can Greg and Karen sit any further apart?? No other couples sit miles apart. This is a very strange relationship.”

Meanwhile, one viewer compared the couple to fellow stars Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu.

She doesn’t like him…

They tweeted: “The difference in body language between Greg/Karen and Rhys/Nancy is STARK #ItTakesTwo #itt.”

However, another fan shared: “I’ll look forward to that Paso by Greg and Karen #ItTakesTwo.”

Greg and Karen will perform the Paso Doble to The James Bond theme tune during movie week.
