ZARA McDermott showed she’s smoking hot on the dance floor during the opening show of Strictly Come Dancing last night.
The documentary filmmaker, 26, shone in white for the cha-cha-cha with her partner Graziano Di Prima, 29, during her first appearance in the BBC competition.
She scored 19 points out of a possible 40, with judge Anton Du Beke, 57, commenting: “I think you’ll be one to keep an eye on.”
Meanwhile, former newsreader Angela Rippon, 78, received a standing ovation from judges Shirley Ballas, 63, and Motsi Mabuse, 42.
And judge Craig Revel Horwood, 58, described the routine as “stunning” after she lifted her leg up to her head during her routine with 28-year-old professional Kai Widdrington.
Meanwhile, 20-year-old EastEnders actor Bobby Brazier scored 29 points despite admitting he had never watched the show before signing up.
He danced the foxtrot with his partner Dianne Buswell, 34, to McFly’s “All About You,” bringing tears to the eyes of his father Jeff Brazier, 44, who was sitting in the audience.
Shirley said: “Your energy is enchanting, your posture, it was absolutely beautiful, we were shocked by your footwork.”
But it was Casualty actor Nigel Harman, 50, who “stole the show” with his pasodoble as he and his partner Katya Jones, 34, topped the leaderboard with 32 points.
Craig said, “I wouldn’t want to compete with you darling, that was the dance of the night.”
