Wow! Tess Daly looked sensational in a figure-hugging red dress as she posed for stunning snaps ahead of the live Strictly show on Saturday night 

Her phenomenal physique was on display in the tight midi number which featured silver belt detailing and was cinched in at the waist.

She completed the look with matching red heels and wore her blonde tresses in perfectly styled waves while opting for a slick of bright red lip. 

Meanwhile Claudia dazzled in a white sequin blazer which was teamed with black leather trousers, a black top and white heels.

Tess wrote in the caption of her Instagram post where she showed off her outfit: ‘Down to just 6 couples tonight, as they dance for their place in the quarter finals next week! See you soon!’ 

John Whaite and Johannes Radebe danced their way to the top of the Strictly Come Dancing leaderboard on Saturday night.

The former Great British Bake Off winner and his dance partner stole the show with their impressively intense Argentine Tango to The 5th by David Garrett, scoring an almost perfect score of 39.

Craig Revel Horwood gushed: ‘I absolutely loved it.’

Cynthia Erivo – who stepped in for Motsi Mabuse, who has been forced to isolate in Germany – clapped and said: ‘I was crazy for it… this is gorgeous.’

Referring to Craig, head judge Shirley Ballas then declared: ‘They are back! Fab-u-lous, I stole your line.’

In second place with a score of 36, AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington danced a Couple’s Choice to Make Me Feel by Janelle Monáe.

Hard-to-please Craig said: ‘You did brilliantly.’ Cynthia said: ‘I love you so much.’

Elsewhere, CBBC star Rhys Stephenson broke down in tears after his emotional Waltz to You Light Up My Life by Whitney Houston.

Shirley said: ‘You have astounded me … it was beautiful. ‘I felt your emotion, I never thought I would see that from you. I just want to give you a hug.’

The crowd booed when Craig laid into the routine and listed off a number of things he felt were wrong with it.

He admitted: ‘For me, technically, it’s not for me, darling.’

Newsreader Dan Walker, meanwhile, left the judges gobsmacked with his hip-thrusting actions to his and Nadiya Bychkova’s racy Rumba to Desperado by Eagles, and managed a score of 31.

Elsewhere, Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin scored 30 out of 40.

The YouTuber’s famous TV chef dad Gordon wiped away tears at the end of their Samba to Levitating by Dua Lipa.

And Tilly thought her dad was ’embarrassed’ speaking to co-host Claudia Winkleman.

Craig admitted he felt it was a little ‘awkward and disconnected’.

EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice kicked off the show with a tantalising Paso Doble to California Dreamin by Sia, which earned them a score of 33.

Shirley hailed Rose as a ‘class act’.
