Danny Mac's perfect Strictly score

Danny Mac and Oti Mabuse received another perfect score on Saturday's (26.11.16) 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The former 'Hollyoaks' star and his professional partner received a standing ovation from the judges and audience for their Samba to 'Magalenha' by Sergio Mendes and they were also awarded a score of 40.

Head judge Len Goodman said: "He's a tease. Started slow but, 'hello' I thought, hint of a shadow roll and then suddenly wallop.

"I tell you, your hips were like a snake. It was fierce like a puma and hotter and steamier than the Amazon jungle. It was fabulous."

Darcey Bussell added: "Danny you have certainly put the hours in to achieve that in one week.

"It was like the most perfect samba master class. Clean isolation, travelling using the dance floor. It was really outstanding."

And Bruno Toniolo gushed: "What are you doing to me? At this time of night, look at the state of me? I need a doctor, a pill, a drink, a cold shoulder.

"It was like watching a Pagan mating ritual between a magnificent, exotic species."

Danny's success on the show comes as a surprise as he recently admitted he turned down the show quite a few times as he was worried about failure.

He said: "I've actually turned it ['Strictly Come Dancing'] a few times, I've been so scared of doing it. But I thought it was time to face my fear. So despite my better judgement, I'm going to attempt to be myself on camera while learning to dance wearing blue sequins."
