Paired with regional treasure Greg Rutherford - what more could we ask for on a cosy night in front of the TV?

The Olympian danced a technically tricky jive with partner Natalie Lowe, which put him at the top of the leaderboard on Friday evening.

It was clear to see that Greg is used to being the centre of competition as he kept himself in the middle of the pack after stand out performances from Daisy Lowe and Louise Redknapp.

Daisy Lowe finished at the top of the leaderboard but home-grown Greg wasn’t far behind with his “speedy jive” and 27 points, with just five couples in front.
