Strictly Come Dancing’s Ashley Roberts’ perfect score as Melody Thornton cries

Strictly Come Dancing ‘s Ashley Roberts has finally landed a perfect score for her salsa – and it moved her pal Melody Thornton to tears.

The Pussycat Dolls star got 10s across the board from judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli after performing a salsa to (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life from Dirty Dancing with her professional partner Pasha Kovalev – including THAT lift.

The pair scored 35 the last time they danced the salsa.

The judges chose the dance for Ashley, telling her there was room for improvement from the last time they performed it.

The judges said they felt Ashley and Pasha could score a 40 this time around.


As Ashley ended her dance, cameras cut to the audience to show her Pussycat Dolls co-star Melody wiping tears from her eyes.

Giving her feedback, Shirley said she’d taken it to the next level.

She told Ashley: "Thanks for opening our final the way you just opened it. It was brilliant."

And when the scores came in, Ashley and Pasha walked away with a perfect 40.

Fans watching at home weren’t surprised.


One said: "Feckin 10’s across the board!! Well there’s a surprise!!"

Another posted: "If Ashley gets all 40s tonight she’ll have the most 40s ever"

And one said: "Soz but Ashley has had dance training previous to this show and I’ll be real sad if she wins. Yes she can dance – and so she should be able to… because she’s been professionally trained"
