Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin have scored a perfect 40 during Musicals Week on 'Strictly Come Dancing.'

The 20-year-old TikTok star and pro Nikita, 23, dressed in school uniforms and performed a routine to Revolting Children from 'Matilda: The Musical, which earned them their first perfect score.

Following their performance, head judge Shirley Ballas said: "I struggled to tell who was the professional. That's how good it was. No disrespect to you [Nikita] but she kept up with you every step of the way."

Shirley's fellow judge Anton Du Beke, 55, called Tilly - who is the daughter of TV chef Gordon Ramsay - a "fighter" and remarked that she was an "inspiration to children" following her performance as the Roald Dahl character.

Guest judge Cynthia Erivo, 34, called the performance "awesome", claiming that it was filled with "fight and energy" while Motsi Mabuse, 40 said the pair were a "force to be reckoned with."

Upon receiving the perfect score which took them to the top of the leader board, Tilly burst into tears as host Claudia Winkleman noted that all of her hard work had "really paid off."

Tilly gushed: "It really did. That's just amazing so thank you, wow!" whilst her partner Nikita added: " I'm just so excited. It's just incredible. Oh my God, I'm lost for words."

'Strictly's' official Twitter account said: "The Nicest Kids in Town become Revolting Children! Tilly and Nikita served so much Matilda mischief and magic tonight. These revolting children are top of the class! A perfect score for Tilly and Nikita! #Strictly" '

Elsewhere this week, Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pierce were hot on the heels of Tilly and Nikita as they scored 37 for dancing the Quickstep to 'Love Is an Open Door' from 'Frozen.'

McFly star Tom Fletcher and his partner Amy Dowden landed in last place for their dance to 'On My Own' from 'Les Miserables', joint with Dan Walker and Nadiya Bychkova for their attempt at the Charleston to 'Good Morning' from 'Singin' in the Rain.'
