When it emerged that he had escaped the dance off for another week, fans on Twitter could barely contain their glee.

But Rinder's moves weren't all that was impressing the fans.

Viewers were also won over by the way he thanked Oksana for being his "teacher" and praised all teachers.

Will the fans carry the Judge all the way to the glitterball?
