‘You’re a real showman, I loved it. If you could put that sequin jacket back in my room I’d be absolutely delighted,’ jested Anton.

And discussing the dance backstage following the performance, Richie explained: ‘This dance required a lot of good posture. And look at me, I’ve got the posture of Mr. Bean.’

Continuing: ‘Thank you for being so patient,’ as he turned towards Giovanni.

As Giovanni gushed: ‘Very very proud of you, we can definitely see improvement, You delivered a good performance, well done’.

The pair managed to bag 32 out of 40 points, over ten points above their debut performance the week before.

And their display of support comes after the partners have been plagued by rumours of a fued off of the camera, with sources telling The Sun that professional dancer Giovanni was becoming frustrated with Richie not listening to him in rehearsals.

One insider said: ‘The pair haven’t clicked. Richie is so swept up by the whole experience that he is talking 100 words a minute, and it can be hard for Giovanni.

‘He has told pals that Richie talks instead of listening during training, and it is frustrating.’

They then added that it was early days and they were still getting used to each other: ‘Giovanni thinks Richie has real potential in the competition.’

However, a source close to the pair told MailOnline: ‘Talk of them not getting on is nonsense. They are having such a laugh and were thrilled at the reaction on Saturday night.’

Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One at 7:15pm on Sunday – when one couple will be eliminated from the contest for the first time this season.
