Fleur East has scored the first Perfect 40 of this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Last weekend's show saw the competition return to the iconic Blackpool Tower for the first time since 2019.

Fleur and her partner Vito Coppolo performed an energetic "couple's choice" routine to a Destiny's Child Megamix.

Fleur burst into tears after receiving her perfect score. She described dancing to Destiny's Child's biggest hits as a 'full-circle moment' as growing up listening to them inspired her to become a singer.

Head judge Shirley Ballas said it was "an iconic routine that will go down in history".

Craig Revel Horwood, giving his first 10 of the season, simply described it as "fab-u-lous!"

Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One.
