Richie and Giovanni, who places second on the leaderboard last week, danced the Samba to Hakuna Matata from The Lion King. 

The pair took to the dance floor in animal costumes as they played the iconic Pumbaa the waterhog and Timon the meerkat.

Bagging 27 out of 40 points, the performance was dubbed ‘one of your best numbers so far’ from Shirley Bassey.

The pair put on a united front during the show and appeared to brush off recent rumours of a fued behind the scenes – following reports that they ‘haven’t clicked’ off camera.

Craig Revel Horwood didn’t appear as impressed as Shirley as he claimed the steps ‘needed more bounce’ but he ‘loved the characterisation’.

Kym Marsh and her partner Graziano Di Prima took on the Charleston to If My Friends Could See Me Now from the movie Sweet Charity. 

Bagging their highest score yet, 33 out of 40, Craig dubbed it her ‘best dance yet’ with Shirley agreeing and claiming it could be the best dance of the series. 

Kym and Graziano appeared thrilled with her score, as he picked her up and soun her around – after the star expressed her fears over the spinning nature of the dance earlier this week, due to her vertigo.

She previously explained: ‘Well, you see I have got visual vertigo. I had an ear problem about six years ago and it left me with visual vertigo, so basically even moving lights make me feel weird.

Before she took to the dancefloor, her daughter who was in the audience said: ‘Watching her confidence grow, she struggled for the first two weeks nerve wise and getting to grips with everything but this week she text me saying she’s enjoying it. We are so proud, she’s going to smash it.’

Next up was Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystal dancing the Rumba to the Theme from Jurassic Park. 

The cameraman, who explained he ‘enjoyed the Rumba’, and his professional partner bagged 25 out if 40 points this week.

Craig once again expressed his touch criticism and ‘thought it was too placed and it needed more expression’ as ‘it was a bit dull’.

Ellie Taylor and Johannes Radebe took to the dancefloor and performed the Cha Cha Cha to The Shoop Shoop Song (It’s In His Kiss) from Mermaids. 

The pair scored 21 out of 40 points putting them on the lower end of the leaderboard – with Craig telling the pair it ‘looked stompy’.  

Anton thought there was a lot to like but there is a ‘fundamental down-below flaw’.

Up next were Matt Goss and Nadiya Bychkova, who found themselves in the dance off last week, but dance the Viennese Waltz to Hold My Hand from Top Gun.

Anton recognised Matt’s improvement from last week as he thought it was a ‘huge improvement but a bit loose in the frame’.

The pair bagged 21 out of 40 points, which they didn’t seem thrilled about compared to 22 points last week. 

The show kicked off with a sensational group performance from the professional dancers to the viral song We Don’t Talk About Bruno.

With a plethora of movie themes to choose from throughout the years, this week’s songs were a mixed bag with film soundtracks from the likes of The Full Monty and Top Gun to Dirty Dancing and The Little Mermaid!
