Watch Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton’s dance here
Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton danced the sixth salsa of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing tonight.
They performed the dance to a version of 1996 hit Ooh Aah…Just a Little Bit by Gina G.
They were the first act of the night directly following the opening number from Gloria Estefan.
Stacey made a memorable entrance riding on a giant piece of Blackpool rock.
The journalist was wearing a fringed red two piece, while Kevin wore a red and black bomber jacket, matching trousers and a brightly coloured floral shirt.
She got twirled and turned by not only Kevin but two backing dancers who assisted her into a midair cartwheel.
Shirley Ballas said: “You brought more than the donkey and a bucket and spade let me tell you.
“Those lifts, that rhythm in your body… you brought it today. Your one little tiny thing is to get your feet closed.”
Bruno Tonioli added: “It was wild and wonderful like a ride on the Big One.”
He then offered the greatest compliment: “The ensemble pieces were so good it was like watching Kylie in concert.”
Craig Revel Horwood, meanwhile, had more constructive feedback: “You need to be aware of your legs in all the lifts…getting out of the lifts was quite haphazard. But apart from that I thought your hip action was absolutely fantastic.”
Darcey Bussell rounded up by saying: “It was fun and exciting from beginning to end. I was buzzing. Your personality just fills this ballroom with ease the two of you together.”
Stacey and Kevin then went to speak to Claudia and Stacey revealed she accidentally hit one of the backing dancers during the number.
The judges then gave their scores for the opening number.
Craig gave them a seven, Darcey an eight, while Shirley and Bruno gave nines for a total score of 33.
Strictly Come Dancing continues tomorrow at 7.20pm on BBC One
