Don’t worry, though, folks. Katya turned out to be just fine - and promptly put Ed in his place for not being focussed.

While it has to be said that Ed isn’t the most impressive dancer ‘Strictly’ has ever had, viewers have been won over by watching him improve each week, and last week he even managed to bag an 8 from one of the judges.

He and Katya will be returning to the ‘Strictly’ dance floor in Saturday’s (5 November) live show, kicking off at 6.55pm on BBC One.
