Strictly Come Dancing saw Dame Emma Thompson sit in on her husband Greg Wise’s rehearsals but her moves with Karen Hauer left viewers wanting to see more.
Greg channelled his inner 007 as he came out to perform a Paso Doble with Karen.
But beforehand, viewers got some insight into his rehearsal time with Karen, where they were joined by his actress wife Dame Emma.
Dame Emma couldn’t wait to get stuck in, with Karen showing her some steps from her upcoming routine with Greg.
‘I got to show her a couple of steps and she was actually pretty good!’ Karen told the camera.
She smiled as she went on to joke: ‘She’s doing exactly what I ask Greg to do and he’s not doing.’
Of course, those watching at home were quickly taken by the prospect of national treasure Dame Emma trying out the dance with pro Karen and called for her to have a stint on the show in the future.
Taking to Twitter, one shared: ‘Petition to have the fab Emma Thompson on the next season dancing with Karen properly #Strictly.’
Another wrote: ‘Lovely to see Emma Thompson on #Strictly again. She was great in the VT with Greg and Karen.’
‘Next year Karen as Bond and Emma Thompson as her Bond girl pls #Strictly,’ said a third.
Another fan echoed: ‘All I can think about is how much I want to see a Paso Doble from start to finish between Karen Hauer and Emma Thompson #Strictly.’
On the pair’s routine last week, which was dedicated to Greg’s late sister Clare, Dame Emma showed her clear support.
She gushed: ‘It was really moving at the same time as being really good fun, I just think you‘re extraordinary both of you.’
But Dame Emma couldn’t resist a light-hearted dig at her husband, cheekily commenting: ‘Watching Greg has been astonishing, I didn’t think of him as being a natural dancer – he’s very good with a chainsaw…’
Strictly Come Dancing returns Sunday at 7:10pm on BBC One.
