Emma Barton and Anton Du Beke left Strictly viewers in awe after their stunning Viennesse Waltz routine.
The pair carefully carved out their routine with grace and elegance, as well as the emotion put into their facial expressions which completely wowed the judges.
The EastEnders’ actress admitted it was going to be an emotional performance as she spoke in a VT.
She wore a stunning purple dress which was embellished with sparkles, as her hair was pinned back into 90s style curls.
Meanwhile dance professional Anton rocked a matching purple silk suit and shirt.
Twitter fans were quick to jump in and have their say about their sweet performance.
A third added: ” @TheAntonDuBeke is such a dream to watch in ballroom with a good partner. Well done.”
Host Tess Daly congratulated the pair at the end of the “gorgeous” performance, and proudly told the pair she was swept away as it was so lovely.
Judge Bruno Tonioli said: “Your best dance yet,” as the audience cheered in the background.
“Apart from the dancing, what you did so beautifully was the interpretation of the character.”
He admitted he had goose bumps from their beautiful performance.
Hard-to-please Craig Revel Horwood told the pair: “I thought it was classy, I thought it was super stylish.”
Motsi praised Emma for being the “queen”, and she also gushed over their performance.
“That dance spoke for itself, I don’t think you have to say so much about that dance, because it was just so beautiful – just so special.”
Motsi confessed she felt the story, the dancing and the music in their emotional waltz.
Emma and Anton received compliment after compliment, which left them in a higher position than last week.
An emotional Emma, who looked like she was about to cry, admitted: “It’s wonderful,” as Strictly host Claudia turned to her and said: “Your friends in the audience were sobbing – just so you know.”
They scored a high 35 in total for their heartfelt dance routine.
