Ashley Roberts tops the "Strictly Come Dancing" leaderboard following tonight's (24.11.18) performances.

The 37-year-old pop star and her professional partner Pasha Kovalev moved to the summit of the leaderboard following the Lindy Hop-A-Thon, which followed the traditional "Strictly" dances.

At the end of the first phase of the show, singer Faye Tozer and TV star Stacey Dooley actually sat joint-top of the standings on 39 points each.

Shirley Ballas was one of three judges who awarded Stacey a score of ten for her eye-catching pasodoble.

She said: "Stacey looked like a star - it was brilliant."

Craig Revel Horwood said: "I loved it, graceful, elegant, gorgeous rise and fall."

Darcey Bussell described their routine as "exquisite".

And Bruno added: "[It was] effortlessly classic, refined, polished and poised."

However, Ashley - whose first dance was awarded a score of 36 by the judges - moved to the top of the leaderboard after winning the Lindy Hop-A-Thon round, which gave the contestants the chance to add some extra points to their earlier scores.

As a result of winning the round, the former Pussycat Dolls star was awarded an additional seven points.

On the other hand, Lauren Steadman and AJ Pritchard are propping up the table with an overall score of 24.
