    Fleur East has become the first contestant of the 2022 series to land a whopping high score of 40.

    The chart-topping artist has finally won over Craig Revel-Horwood as the judge has been dishing out 9s and lower in recent weeks – but Fleur managed to get a high score of 10 from the judge.

    Fleur, who was dancing to a remix from Destiny's Child as she looked utterly sensational in matching silver sequined outfits, became emotional as she heard the score.

    Fleur was joined by Vito Coppola as the pair secured the first perfect 40 from the judges while Motsi Mabuse said she needed to push her chair back so she could dance along to the performance.

    The artist described the moment as she landed the score as "full circle" adding that she grew up listening to the girl group which prompted her to become a singer.

    Craig had described Fleur's performance as "fab-u-lous", while Shirley declared it was "iconic" and would "go down in history".

    As Fleur fought back her tears, the camera soon panned to her mum who also had a rather emotional display as she gushed over her daughter's impressive routine.

    Fleur is currently topping the leaderboard as she attended Blackpool to put on a sensational performance.
