The former ‘Coronation Street’ actress and her professional partner, Giovanni Pernice, had praise heaped on them by the judging panel, following their performance of the American Smooth during a special live episode at Blackpool Tower.
While Craig Revel Horwood called the pair “fantastic”, Bruno Tonioli called Georgia a “heavenly creature”, adding: “Pure ballroom bliss... it was fantastic, my dear.”
Together, the couple earned an impressive 38 of a possible 40 points, shooting them to the second place on the overall leaderboard, just behind ‘Call The Midwife’ actress, Helen George.

Surprisingly, Peter Andre was the lowest-scorer of the evening, following his Jive to Tina Turner’s ‘River Deep, Mountain High’.
While Len Goodman admitted it “wasn’t his finest” hour, Craig added that it had been “flat-footed” and “heavy”, though he did say: “Your commitment and your energy to dance is phenomenal.”
Other high-scorers on the night were Anita Rani and Gleb Savchenko on 37 points, while Kellie Bright and Kevin Clifton also managed the same score.
With just four weeks remaining until this year’s winning ‘Strictly’ couple are revealed, another dancing pair are set to go home in Sunday night’s results show.
