Caroline Flack and Jake Wood top the Strictly Come Dancing leaderboard... knocking Frankie Bridge into second place with Pixie Lott

By Sharnaz Shahid for MailOnline



Both Caroline Flack and Jake Wood along with their dance partners topped the Strictly Come Dancing leaderboard on Saturday evening.

Stunning the crowds with the Quckstep to We Go Together from the movie Grease, Caroline and her partner Pasha scooped an impressive 33, while the EastEnders star and Janette Manrara worked their magic with the Jive to Elvis Presley's All Shook Up 

The 40-year-old actor - who has been pretty much declared man of the match in the competition - was told by the judges that he needs to focus with his arm movements but hailed his performance as 'dynamic'.

After earning the first 10 of the series last week, The Saturdays' Frankie Bridge was the first to take to the dancefloor with her partner Kevin Clifton.

Dancing the Cha Cha Cha to Call Me Maybe, the judges thought it was a bit full on and that her footwork was a bit loose. However, Bruno Tonioli liked the detail and advised her to focus on tightening the legwork, while Craig agreed. 

Darcey Bussell was most complimentary by saying it was 'fast, fun and cheeky'.

Former TOWIE star Mark Wright wowed the judges as he and partner Karen Hauer went old school with the Quickstep to Tiger Feet by Mud, with Bruno saying: 'You didn't go wrong, it was very intricate.'

'You have improved. I can see you thought about it a lot,' Darcy added. 'You kept in sync and were very impressive.'

Head judge Len Goodman jokingly said: 'You were like a tiger trotting after dinner. I liked it overall. There was plenty of energy earlier on.' 

Mark and Karen both scored 29.

Next up was Judy Murray, who managed to get a standing ovation after performing the Tango with Anton Du Beke to Jealousy by Billy Fury.

The 55-year-old was previously lambasted as one of the show's worst contestants, and on Saturday Craig Revel Horwood told her: 'You had this bizarre vacant look, as if someone had been lobotomised.'

Turning to Anton he said: 'I did love how you threw her like a bowling ball.'

Darcy commented: 'I thought it was wonderful at the beginning and it was wonderful at the end. You gave us some attack. It's still too stiff but you came out and it was a lovely surprise.'

Judy and Anton scored 22, their best result so far.

Simon Webbe garnered plaudits as he showcased his moves to the Charleston to My Old Man, winning praise from Craig who claimed 'this type of dance really suits you'.

'Simon is back on track, alive and kicking. Tonight you were on it,' Bruno excitedly quipped, before adding: 'Your performance was focused that's the way you do.' 

Dazzling the crowds with her glitzy gold dress, TV presenter Alison Hammond and her partner Aljaž Skorjanec got the party started with their saucy Samba to Destiny’s Child Bootylicious.

'It was full of fun and energy,' Len went on to say. 'You've got your mojo back!'

When asked whether he was put in the party mood, Craig quipped: 'Sadly it did not. Your footwork needs work.' 

However, Darcy chipped in with: 'I have to say I wanted to be a part of that party on the dancefloor with you.'

Sadly it wasn't the best night for everyone as BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills and Joanne Clifton failed to impress the judges with their performance of the American Smooth to Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart.

Bruno kicked off with: 'It should have been an American Smooth but that looked like and American tragedy. 

'You had all these these pieces but nothing fitted together,' he added.

Craig was the most scathing, saying: 'I think you are an exception to the rule that anyone can dance. I was slightly concerned when you Jo ran like a banshee.'

'I saw improvements with you topline,' Darcy sympathised. 'It's not easy routine.' 

The radio DJ scored a mere 15, with Craig giving him a 2. 

Trying his best, antiques expert Tim Wonnacott and Natalie Lowe tried their luck with the Paso Doble Tina Turner's Simply The Best but scored a low 19.

Hailed as 'very watchable' by Len, wildlife presenter Steve Backshall sizzled on the dancefloor with his Salsa to Harry Belafonte's Jump in the Line and scored 27.

Darcey thought it oozed heaps of great energy and said that the lifts looked far too easy, but added it needed more hips. 

Casualty actress Sunetra Sarker also impressed the judges as she and partner Brendan Cole entertained the crowd with their Salsa to Turn the Beat Around by Vicki Sue Robinson.

Overcome with tears Pop star Pixie Lott gave a beautiful performance of Rumba to Stay With Me by Sam Smith, which earned her an impressive 32. 

Bruno said it was the 'most wonderful mood of love' he had seen in the studio, with Craig describing it as 'exquisite'.

The pretty songstress came joint second with fellow singer Frankie with a score of 32.  

Meanwhile, sports hunk Thom Evans and Iveta Lukosuite performed the Foxtrot to Build Me Up Buttercup by The Foundations.

Scoring a decent 30, Darcey thought the couple have improved during the competition, with Len thinking it was 'blooming lovely'.
