Kellie Bright tops Strictly leaderboard

Kellie Bright and Kevin Clifton have topped the 'Strictly Come Dancing' semi-final leaderboard.

The 'EastEnders' actress and her professional partner received 34 points in total for their Rumba and wowed the judges with their second dance, an American Smooth for which they were awarded 39 points on Saturday's (12.12.15) show.

Bruno Tonioli called their performance "absolutely delicious" while Craig Revel Horwood said their second dance was "a classic, danced beautifully, shame about the end". Darcey Bussell praised them for a dance full of "glamour, flair and heavenly Hollywood quality".

And Len Goodman tipped them for the final, telling the pair: "you 100 per cent deserve to get to the final".

Kellie's performance was even more impressive as it came just one week after she found herself in the dance-off.

Meanwhile, things did not go quite so well for Katie Derham and her dance partner Anton du Beke, who found themselves at the bottom of the group of dancers.

They were awarded a lowly 24 for their Charleston while the pair received a total of 31 for their second dance, a waltz.

Georgia May Foote and Giovanni Pernice, Aliona Vilani and Jay McGuiness and Gleb Savchenko and Anita Rani also competed in Saturday's semi-final.
