There was so much respect and love for Lesley Joseph on Strictly's opening show


Birds Of A Feather legend Lesley Joseph was one of the first dancers to appear on the first full episode of Strictly Come Dancing, and fans at home were just so, so happy to see her.

She performed a beautiful waltz with Anton du Beke to her hit comedy series' theme song What'll I Do, so that was pretty cool in itself.

And on Twitter, people just could not believe that she is the oldest star in the current series at 70, dancing like THAT.

She looked stunning in a bright pink ballgown as she waltzed away with Anton, who loomed over her in a suave tuxedo.

And there was one majorly emotional moment when the camera panned to Lesley's Birds Of A Feather co-star Linda Robson...

The judges were mostly pleased with her effort, and she was praised for being "elegant and romantic".

Lesley was given 23 points overall to come joint bottom place on the leaderboard so far with Naga Munchetty, but there is no public vote this week so fans can relax.

You go, Dorien Green!
