Strictly Come Dancing 2020 LIVE: JJ Chalmers risks facing dance-off as stars battle for semi-final in the Results Show

JJ CHALMERS risks facing the dance-off as he lands at the bottom of the leaderboard ahead of the Strictly Results Show.

The presenter and his partner Amy Dowden performed a Charleston to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang during Musicals week.

But JJ failed to impress the Strictly judges by only scoring 20 points.

Also at risk are Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer, who received 24 points for their Jive to Everybody's Talking About Jamie.

Fan-favourites Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse also scored 24 points for their Argentine Tango to Phantom of the Opera.

However, someone riding high is HRVY, who stormed to the top of the leaderboard.

The social media sensation, who looked glitzy in a gold suit, went all out dancing the American Smooth with pro partner Janette Manrara.

They got a standing ovation from the Strictly judges and even Mr Nasty, Craig Revel Horwood, said the youngster reminded him of himself.

    Strictly Come Dancing fans know their stuff – and were quick to point out a mistake by head judge Shirley Ballas.

    The judge was heaping praise on the professional dancer for her choreography for her celebrity partner HRVY and the

    As they tried to catch their breath, Shirley said: “You definitely brought theatre to this ballroom.

    “But can we take a moment as I think its Janette's first time in the quarter final, and let me tell you lady that was beautifully choreographed from start to finish.”

    However, die-hard Strictly fans were quick to point out Shirley's American Smooth.

    Janette, who has been on the show since 2013, made it to the semi-finals with EastEnders actor Jake Wood in 2014.

    One fan wrote on Twitter: “Eh. Jake and Janette got to the semi finals. Can't be Janette's first time in the quarters or did I hear that wrong?”

    And one viewer said: “He kissed her head and i have feelings about it”

    Strictly Come Dancing fans were ecstatic yesterday as Gorka, Giovanni and Johannes performed in drag during the spectacular Musicals Week opener.

    With many theatres across the country still closed due to Covid-19, the BBC dancing show wanted to pay tribute with this year's Musicals Week.

    The opening number had a Priscilla Queen of the Desert theme and part way through, it saw the three male professionals swap their denim and vest tops for full drag.

    As they came out from behind the camper van at the back of the dancefloor, they sported colourful wigs, heels and makeup while showing off their moves and flicking their fans.
