Twice as nice: It’s reportedly been a tough season for Vanessa Lachey and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. But if the actress and the ballroom dancer have any tension between them, they are keeping it well hidden on Saturday

Vanessa wore a black T-shirt and grey speckled leggings with black Nike trainers. She carried a tote bag and her pink cell phone.

Maksim was weighed down by what looked like a brief case.

He too had on a black top and grey leggings with black sneakers. The star added a blue cap with yellow embroidery.

 He carried coffees for two. It’s likely the other one was for Lachey.

When they last performed, Lachey lost part of her dress.

She put on an expert display on Monday night despite her skirt falling off 20 seconds into her quickstep.

She and pro partner Maksim didn’t let it affect them, gliding through the rest of the dance — and even earning their strongest score yet.

Co-host Tom Bergeron could even be seen running out onto the ballroom floor, and scooping up the jettisoned skirt during the live performance.

‘I lose my skirt right in front of the judges. It looks like bribery,’ she joked to Bergeron afterwards. ‘Hey, if it’s for extra points, I’ll take it.’

And earn extra points it did, securing nines across the board and the couple’s best performance so far.

‘It took me back to season one when Kelly Monaco had a wardrobe malfunction and it actually sent her over the top,’ judge Carrie Ann Inaba praised.

‘What I saw was you — something happened and you just let yourself go and it was such a fantastic performance! You are the epitome of class and grace.’

Lachey concluded: ‘Freedom, no skirt!’

before the dance, Maks and Vanessa described their preparation during rehearsals.

‘I got the quickstep on steroids. It’s [one minute and 40 seconds] of straight energy,’ Vanessa explained

‘This week has been the most work that we’ve done, but it’s also been the most fun that we’ve had.’

‘We’ve been dancing together for over a month now and we know what each other’s thinking,’ she continued. ‘Maks and I are more focused than ever right now and nothing is going to get in our way.’

Sadly for Vanessa and Maksim’s other halves — Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd — it their last dance, as they got the boot.
