Katherine is a favourite to win Dancing With The Stars

Katherine Jenkins has come up trumps again on this week's US show Dancing With The Stars.

The Welsh opera singer and her dancing partner Mark Ballas showed their soulful side in the special Motown-themed show.

The star was a whirl of gold glitter as she danced an energetic samba to The Temptations' hit track I Can’t Get Next To You.

Their sterling performance topped the leader board with a whopping 29 out of a possible 30 points from the judges.

Len Goodman, who scored 9 points while neighbouring judges both gave full marks, commented on Katherine’s consistency.

“I'm going to call you the midwife because you keep delivering week after week,” he said in one of his classic one-liners.

The couple also beat their fellow rivals at the Motown marathon, which earned them a further 10 points. All eight remaining couples performed the cha cha as one, before being eliminated one by one by the judges.

From the start, Katherine has been a favourite to win the programme’s coveted mirror-ball trophy, and this week it seems she is a few dance steps closer.
