Here is the celebrity topping the Strictly leaderboard this week

Strictly: Claudia checks on Nigel after being disappointed at scores

Strictly Come Dancing has reached Blackpool Week and the remaining stars will be competing in the prestigious Blackpool Tower Ballroom to fight for their place in the competition.

Last weekend, fans said goodbye to journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy who was axed following a dance-off against Angela Rippon.

The celebrity topping the leaderboard last weekend was Layton Williams and his partner Nikita Kuzmin.

They almost scored full marks for their spicy Argentine Tango, but judge Craig Revel Horwood handed them a nine.

Who will be at the top of the leaderboard this weekend – and will anyone get 40 points?
