John Whaite and his professional partner Johannes Radebe have topped the 'Strictly Come Dancing' leaderboard.

The 32-year-old star and Johannes, 34 - who are the first-ever all-male partnership on the BBC show - wowed the judges with their latest performance, as they danced the Charleston to 'Milord' by Edith Piaf.

The duo scored an impressive 38 out of 40 points to put themselves at the top of the 'Strictly' leaderboard.

Elsewhere, Rose Ayling-Ellis and her partner Giovanni Pernice also impressed the judges, scoring 37 out of 40 for their latest performance.

The 'EastEnders' actress - who plays Frankie Lewis in the long-running soap - danced the Viennese Waltz to 'Fallin' by Alicia Keys.

Tilly Ramsay and her professional partner Nikita Kuzmin achieved a score of 36 out of 40.

The 19-year-old star and Nikita wowed the crowd with their dance, which they performed to the sound of One Direction's 'Little Things'.

Following their routine, Anton Du Beke said to Tilly: "You are joyous! I'm convinced you'd be a joy to dance with."

Craig Revel Horwood also praised Tilly's performance, describing it as "absolutely gorgeous".

On the other hand, Ugo Monye and his partner Oti Mabuse earned a paltry score of 20 out of 40.

The rugby star and Oti performed the Rumba to 'Leave The Door Open' by Bruno Mars, Anderson Paak and Silk Sonic - but the judges were underwhelmed by their efforts.

Sara Davies and her partner Aljaz Skorjanec failed to impress, too.

The duo only managed to score 25 out of 40 with their Rumba, which they performed to 'You’re Still The On' by Shania Twain.
