Strictly fans ecstatic as Fleur East finally gets recognition in best Samba ever seen

Strictly Come Dancing viewers were left ecstatic on Saturday night's 2022 final as Fleur East "finally got recognition" in the "best Samba ever seen" on the BBC One show.

During the latest episode, Fleur, 35, and her pro partner Vito Coppola performed a Samba to Hot Hot Hot by Arrow as their judges’ pick.

And the sizzling routine left the judges Anton Du Beke, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and head judge Shirley Ballas impressed as they all awarded 10, giving a total of 40 incredible points.

While presenter Claudia Winkleman pointed out: "In Strictly history, you are the second couple to ever score a perfect score for the Samba, in Strictly history, that’s fantastic!"

Viewers were also left delighted that talented Fleur "finally got recognition" for her incredible routine on the hit BBC One dance show.

Taking to Twitter, one person said: "Fleur finally getting the recognition she deserves #StrictlyFinal #strictly."

A different account put: "Second couple EVER to score a perfect 40 on the samba, ONLY couple to score a 40 this series and they’ve done it TWICE. Fleur deserves TO WIN !!! #StrictlyFinal #Strictly."

Another follower wrote: "Fleur’s Samba was amazing. And to get 40/40 is so well deserved #strictly."

While a different viewer added: "Yes finally. 40 for Fleur and Vito's samba #strictly."

It comes as four couples – Fleur and Vito, Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystal, Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu, and Helen Skelton and Gorka Marquez – are hoping to lift the 2022 Glitterball Trophy on Saturday night.

Each of the finalists have topped the Strictly leaderboard at some point – Hamza five times, Fleur and Helen twice and Molly once – during their time on the show and will be fighting to win the most public votes on Saturday evening.

During the show, the four stars will all perform a routine chosen by the judges, their own favourite dance and finally a show dance.
