Strictly Come Dancing paid a moving tribute to the NHS last night after inviting frontline workers to the first live show.

BBC presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman opened the series by revealing that NHS staff had been invited into the audience as a thank you for their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic.

‘We’ve invited very special people into our audience tonight – some of our incredible frontline workers,’ Tess explained.

Claudia added: ‘We want to thank you for everything you’ve done for us. And to thank you for everything you continue to do. We hope you enjoy tonight.’

The first live show went off with a bang – and there were definitely some shocks and surprises from the celebs in terms of skill.

Maisie, who was at the top of the leaderboard throughout last night’s show, wowed the judges after she and her partner Gorka Marquez danced to Gloria Estefan’s Samba.

But it was darkhorse HRVY who took the lead when he performed the Jive with pro Janette Manrara.

All of the celebs were safe last night as there were no eliminations. However, Strictly fans think it will be MP Jacqui Smith, who will be voted off next week.

Metro.co.uk readers have cast their votes, and reckon that Jacqui and Anton Du Beke are the landslide favourites to be sent home after next week’s elimination.

In fact, 45% of people who gave their votes said she and Anton – who performed a foxtrot to Monty Python’s Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life – will be shown the door.

Jamie Laing and Bill Bailey came in joint second-place for the dance-off, earning 10% of the vote each.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday on BBC One.
