Strictly Come Dancing's Georgia May Foote wows at Blackpool's Tower Ballroom

Georgia May Foote topped the 'Strictly Come Dancing' leaderboard as the celebrities danced in Blackpool's iconic Tower Ballroom.

The former 'Coronation Street' beauty wowed the crowds with a stunning American Smooth to Whitney Houston's 'I Have Nothing', earning herself the top mark of 38.

Bruno Tonioli dubbed the performance - which saw Georgia descend to the stage sat in a sparkling crescent moon - "pure ballroom bliss" whilst head judge Len Goodman admitted he was "blown away".

Just pipped to the post was Anita Rani, who scored 37 points for her fiery and passionate Paso Doble.

Craig Revel Horwood praised the "drama, character-driven, Spanish line, total theatre, right up my strasse [street], magnificent," whilst Darcey Bussell added: "It blew me away, forceful intent but beautifully classy."

Other stars who impressed were Jay McGuiness with his salsa and Helen George for her Charleston.

Kellie Bright and Kevin Clifton ended the spectacular night with a quickstep, which secured them joint second place with 37 points.

Failing to impress was Peter Andre, who was at the bottom of the leaderboard with 29 points, scoring a 6 for the first time.

Earlier in the evening, the remaining celebrities and professionals performed a show-stopping dance to 'Bills' by LunchMoney Lewis.

'Strictly Come Dancing' continues tomorrow (21.11.15).
