Richie told the host how happy he was with their high scores on Saturday night after a slow start to week one.

The pair scored 32 from the judges, 9 more than last week with an 8/8/8/8.

Richie said: “I thought they swapped my scores with someone else. That’s the kind of thing you dream about. To be in front of the judges and get 8, I never thought it would happen in a month Sunday.”

He added: “One thing we worked so hard on during training was to curb the enthusiasm because I’m on the dance floor and I’m a bit like a kid in a disco.

“Less is almost more.”

Gio echoed his comment, saying, “Adrenaline. When you get on the dance floor, there’s adrenaline and we spent all week taking a step back.”

But some who watched at home were confused by their body language, and one tweeted: “I don’t think Gio is very happy with Richie as a partner”

Another commented: “Why are Gio and Richie sitting in separate chairs while Kaye and Kai were sitting on a couch?

“Gio looks a bit out of his kind idk?”

And a third saw the pair clash over their upcoming Samba to The Lion King’s Hakuna Matata.

The viewer said, “The way Giovanni said, ‘I’m Pumbaa!’ with such pain and indignation at the fact that his warthog was refused”
