Social media star Saffron Barker and her professional dance partner AJ Pritchard topped the leaderboard on Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday night with a score of 38 - their highest of the series of far.

The duo delighted the judges, the audience and the other couples with their Foxtrot to New York, New York, using canes to bring some old school style to the start of the performance.

After a standing ovation, Barker and Pritchard received maximum 10 scores from Motsi Mabuse and guest judge Alfonso Ribeiro, with fellow judges Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood each giving them scores of nine. 

Ballroom lover Barker told presenter Claudia Winkleman: "We haven't been able to do a dance like this yet. It's been nice to be able to show our personalities."

"You caned it," added partner Pritchard.

Former footballer David James and professional dance partner Nadiya Bychkova were bottom of the leaderboard on the night with 16 for their Jive.

Sunday's results show airs at 7:15pm on BBC One.
