Fans of Strictly Come Dancing were at a loss for words as they watched Layton Williams rip up the ballroom floor on Saturday night’s show.
The Bad Education star, 29, surprised the judges with his and partner Nikita Kuzmin’s dance cha cha to Whitney Houston’s Million Dollar Bill.
Head judge Shirley Ballas claimed the male pair were ‘back in the game,’ Anton Du Beke thought their performance was ‘simply wonderful,’ and Craig Revel Horwood stated’million dollar bill, million dollar dance’.
Motsi Mabuse gave them a 10 and stated she could watch them ‘day and night,’ which added to their total and handed them the honour of highest series score thus far.
Fans were puzzled as they watched the celebrity soar into the air and land in a splits stance with ease.
Taking to social media, one penned: ‘Layton just changed my life with this’, while another said: ‘If that wasn’t worth 40, I’m not sure what dance is!!!’
