AJ Odudu earns an impressive 34 points from a possible 40 during her debut outing on Strictly Come Dancing.

AJ Odudu was left stunned on Saturday night as she topped the leaderboard after the first Strictly Come Dancing live show.

The TV presenter and pro partner Kai Widdrington earned a stunning first-week score of 34 for their jive routine - including nines from both Anton Du Beke and Shirley Ballas.

Team GB swimmer Adam Peaty also impressed on the night, with Craig Revel Horwood saying that he loved "every inch" of his "masculine" performance with partner Katya Jones.

The pair shared second spot on 30 points with John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, who made show history with the first performance by a male-male coupling.

At the wrong end of the leaderboard, Dragons' Den star Sara Davies and partner Aljaz Skorjanec could only muster up 17 points for their Cha-Cha-Cha to Diana Ross anthem 'The Boss'.

As is customary for the first week, none of the celebrities is eliminated, with the week one scores being combined with the week two scores and the viewers' votes to determine who goes into the dance-off.

2= John Whaite and Johannes Radebe - 30 points
