Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse sent the judges into hysteria with one of Strictly Come Dancing‘s steamiest ever routines, as they soared to the top of the leaderboard during Saturday’s live show.

The pair performed a rumba to Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers that was described as ‘filth’ by Craig Revel Horwood, left Bruno Tonioli ‘basking in the afterglow,’ and Shirley in the midst of a hot flush.

Kelvin and Oti earned a stellar 36 points out of 40, and once again proved they are one of the series’ frontrunners with the naughty routine. 

Wow! Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse sent the judges into hysteria with one of Strictly Come Dancing’s steamiest ever routines, as they soared to the top of the leaderboard

As Kelvin and Oti completed their sensual routine, the panel struggled to contain their excitement as they praised the steamy performance.

Motsi admitted she was somewhat outraged to see a man dance in such a manner with her sister, adding: ‘Goodness you just got me! You put a name on it well done guys so much good quality in there beautiful dancing!’

Shirley gushed: ‘Let me tell you I don’t know which bit to start with, a very vert masculine many with scintillated and sensual hip action with a beautiful leg action, with a sensitivity, you just sent my temperature through the roof, I’ve never seen a man rumba like that.’

Meanwhile, Bruno – who struggled to keep his cool after the dance – added: ‘I’m still basking in the afterglow so is most of the nation! The quality itself of the dance was absolutely excellent, you pushed it right through the body, most people try it went right through your body, I’ve never seen hips igniting quite so much.’

After performing one of the show’s most memorable routines to an Aladdin hit last week, Dev Griffin and Dianne Buswell were up next with a Cha Cha Cha to Dancing With a Stranger by Sam Smith featuring Normani.

Although the pair’s performance was technically strong, the judges noted that they need to show more personality and ‘really sell’ the dance, and they scored 27 points out of 40.

Motsi explained: ‘When you start dancing you make it look like the easiest thing in the world, we had a few times when you had the beat, sometimes you focus so much to Dianne that we lose you in the dance. You’ve got this boo you just need to bring it on.’

Bruno added: ‘We really like you you have such a natural great quality, you don’t know how quite to sell it yet and how to sustain a performance all the way through, and then there is like a barrier like you doubt in yourself. Go for it because you’ve got it within you.’

Catherine Tyldesley and Johannes Radebe brought a comedic twist to a Beyonce classic, with a Charleston to Single Ladies. 

The pair delighted a majority of the panel with the comedic routine, and scored a solid 30 points out of 40.

Bruno said: ‘An action packed pink explosion, you could not fit anymore in it. Every note had a step just keeping up with that is an achievement well done.’

Craig offered a more constructive critique, saying: ‘I thought the footwork was quite random and messy in places, the swivel was haphazard, but you’ve done brilliantly to get to this stage with that and I know if you had a second attempt at that dance it would be amazing.’

Meanwhile Alex Scott and Neil Jones also bounced back following his reported backstage row with estranged wife Katya last week, with a steamy Tango to Fleetwood Mac’s You Can Go Your Own Way.

The pair earned a mixed response for their biker-themed routine, and scored 23 points out of 40.

Bruno Tonioli said: ‘Oh Alex you’re turning nasty the little Hell’s Angel of Tango, it’s good try to explore different sides of your personality, it’s good to see that, something went wrong, and then you couldn’t get back on the actual technique of it, when you do this sequence of staccatos, you cannot be hesitant when attempting these difficult steps.’

Their appearance comes after Neil reportedly sparked a ‘huge’ backstage row with his ex Katya last Saturday night.

The pro dancer was said to have been irked by Katya saying: ‘I’ve never been better’ after taking a tumble during her dance with partner Mike Bushell. 

Neil reportedly thought the comment was not about the fall and was instead a thinly-veiled dig at him following the demise of their marriage.  

A source told The Sun: ‘Just after filming finished, a huge fight broke out backstage between Katya and Neil. 

‘He thought what she said was a dig, and didn’t appreciate it. He was really annoyed and told her so – but she denied it was anything to do with him.’ 

MailOnline contacted Strictly’s representatives for comment at the time/
