Danny Mac gets Strictly 2016's first 40, but Ed Balls steals the show

Updated: 

Danny Mac and Oti Mabuse may have scored the first 40 of this series of Strictly Come Dancing - but as usual, Ed Balls stole the show.

Actor Danny took on a Charleston to Puttin' On The Ritz and people were amazed yet again by how good he was.

The judges heaped adoring praise on him and awarded him the first full marks we've seen on the programme this year, which we all probably expected Danny to achieve first.

But the only thing that dulled his shine was being immediately followed by people's favourite Ed, who danced the Jive with partner Katya Jones to Great Balls Of Fire.

And all of a sudden, it was as if poor old Danny's four perfect 10s had never even happened.

He may only have scored 23 points, but in the fans' hearts it was definitely a full 40.
