‘It was filth and I loved it!’ Craig Revel Horwood praises Strictly star Harry Judd for his sizzling Argentine Tango that left girlfriend giving him the silent treatment
Harry Judd and Aliona Vilani set television screens on fire with their passionate Argentine Tango.
Their electric performance on Strictly Come Dancing tonight also tipped the leader board with an impressive 37 out of 40.
However, a certain young lady might not be too happy about this particular routine.
Sizzling: Harry Judd performs an electric performance with Aliona Vilani that left him top of the leader board on Strictly Come Dancing
Compromising position: Harry revealed earlier this week that girlfriend Izzy Johnston gave him the silent treatment after watching rehearsals
Earlier this week, the McFly drummer revealed girlfriend Izzy Johnston was so riled by his dirty dancing that she gave him the silent treatment.
He said: ‘When she (Izzy) came to watch us practice the tango, Aliona warned her that it was raunchy.
‘I was almost biting her neck and really getting into it to show off… On the ride home Izzy was really quiet. She was freaked out a bit. She said, "Just don’t talk to me now – speak to me in the morning."’
Passionate: Craig Revel Horwood told Harry and Aliona their performance was ‘filth’
Even hard-to-please judge Craig Revel Horwood rewarded them with a nine, saying: ‘It had authority, dominance, command, control. It was filth and I loved it!’
Bruno Tonioli doled out a generous 10, and couldn’t resists flirting and turning Harry’s cheeks red.
He said: ‘You’ve never been stronger. You’ve never been more attractive.’

Alesha Dixon agreed and also gave top marks, while Len Wiseman was less easy to please.
Despite saying the routine was ‘very clever’ he moaned: ‘The Argentine Tango is the about mood, yes the steps were good, but it was clinical and neat.’
He also shouted at Craig, saying: ‘There was no passion you silly little sod’ before having a slice of humble pie and apologising in order to evade any viewer complaints.
Elegant: Despite not coming top of again, Chelsee Healy scored an impressive 36 for her Foxtrot with Pasha Kovalev
Chelsee Healy and parnter Pasha Kovalev matched their score of 36 from last week, but it wasn’t quite enough to catapult them to the top spot and landed them in second behind Judd and Vilani.
They looked over the moon as Alesha awarded them a 10 for their Foxtrot, saying she looked ‘elegant and graceful’, adding ‘you truly are a lady, absolutely stunning.’
Craig continued with his kinder streak, giving them a nine and revealing: ‘You’re starting to tick all my boxes, well done.’

Bruno showered the Waterloo Road actress with praise, adding: ‘You are a gorgeous little thing, so sophisticated tonight. It really was like the soft wings of a dove. I adore you.’
Holly Valance performed incredibly with new partner Brendan Cole, after Artem Chigvintsev damaged his back with a spinal injury and had to pull out of the competition.
Dancing the Rumba, the Australian beauty looked dazzling in a pink sequined frock that no doubt helped to influence the score up to 34.
Camp extravaganza: Russel Grant and Flavia Cacace put on a glitzy performance that will no doubt save them for another week
The wow factor: Russell may not be very good technically, but the audience can’t seem to get enough of him
Alesha applauded the new pairing, saying: ‘Considering you’ve had to change partners, you have done exceptionally well. I did feel the emotion, I just think there’s so much more to come from you.’
Typically, Craig couldn’t resist a quip at Cole, adding: ‘I thought we got rid of you Brendan, but I’m pleased you’re back as I’m loving this new partnership.’
Bruno, who scored the performance with a nine, got a little hot under the collar and seemed to fumble with his words as he said: ‘You have so much sex within you!’
Cheeky: Despite being 60, Grant shows no signs of slowing down or giving a more modest performance
Robbie Savage and Ola Jordan proved to be one of the most popular couples still left in the competition, drawing the loudest cheer from the audience.
They made a small improvement of two points on last week, scoring a total of 31.
Alesha gushed: ‘You are constantly moving in the right direction. Great job!’, while Bruno told him he was ‘becoming a smooth operator’.

The comedy performance of the night typically came from Russell Grant and Flavia Cacace.
They put on a camp extravaganza with their American Smooth, prancing around in gold costumes to reign in a score of 26 – two more than last week.
Len accused him of looking like ‘a giant Ferrero Rocher’, but said the performance made him laugh, Alesha added: ‘We’ve just had a snapshot of your imagination, which looks like a fun place to be.’

Despite their low score of 20, Bruce Forsyth revealed Audley Harrison and Natalie Lowe are still his favourite.
Their Cha Cha Cha drew the worst insult of the night, as Bruno said: ‘National Rail on a Bank Holiday has better timing.’
He added: ‘At this stage, you should give us more impact. I’m sorry, as I do like you a lot.’
Agile: Even though husband Brian May was in the audience, Anita did not hold back with partner Robin Windsor
Len tried to continue the theme of the joke, quipping: ‘The only way you’re going to Wembley Arena (where the Strictly tour will take place) is on the Jubilee line.
‘Your timing was good, you had rhythm. It wasn’t your best dance, but you did your best.’
Jason Donovan looked disappointed with his comments, although did score a reasonable 35 for his Viennese Waltz with Kristina Rihanoff.
Tender: Jason Donovan put in another good performance, but the other celebrities are starting to steal his thunder
There was also a pre-recorded message from former Neighbours co-star Kylie Minogue wishing him luck and saying: ‘You still look as good as you did 20 years ago.’
While Alesha was complimentary, calling the performance ‘dramatic’, it was Craig that left Donovan down in the dumps.
Sealed with a kiss: Kylie sent Jason Donovan a good luck message, saying she thinks he still looks as good as he did 20 years ago
He said: ‘This dance could be a 10, but it’s not because your arms are letting you down, they’re wooden. You have to have shaping otherwise it will remain a poor Ballroom.’
Alex Jones made a comeback from last week’s disastrous performance that saw the netting of her dress get caught on the heel of her shoe and an impromptu collapse on the floor.
Youthful: Alex Jones called on her inner cheerleader for her fun Jive with James Jordan
Together with partner James Jordan, they kicked off the show with their Jive and managed a reasonable 31.
Len told her she was ‘blossoming, adding: ‘It could have been sharper, but it was so full of gusto. I thought it was terrific.’
Graceful: Ola Jordan looked typically stunning as she took to the dancefloor with ex-footballer Robbie Savage
Alesha said it was a ‘credible opening to the show’, while it was unclear if Bruno’s comment was a compliment or insult after saying: ‘You have the enthusiasm of a manic cheerleader.’
Anita Dobson and Robin Windsor performed the same dance as top scorers Harry and Alino, with their Argentine Tango getting 33.
Bottom of the table: Audley Harrison only scored 20 out of 40, but host Bruce Forsyth said he was his favourite
Bruno was impressed, saying: ‘You unleashed her basic instinct. Sexy mama, queen of tango!’
While Alesha was overwhelmed with how good she looks for 62, adding: ‘You totally drew me into the story and you look sensational.’
