The couple obviously had to include the iconic lift made famous by the film’s stars Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, and they completed it without incident.

As Pasha held Ashley, 37, aloft, the studio audience cheered, and the viewers at home took to Twitter to praise their efforts.

One wrote: “Not gunna lie, when she went to take the run for the lift I stopped breathing #strictly”, while another added: “Ashley’s just in a different league #Strictly.”

A third tweeted: “THE LIFT!!! THEY SUCCESSFULLY DID THE LIFT!!!”

A fourth was equally astounded, writing: “Ashley omg! Absolutely fantastic loved loved loved” while a fellow fan added: “Ashley and Pasha oh my goodness. That lift!!! Just OUTSTANDING #Strictly.”

The judges were full of praise for the pair, although Craig Revel Horwood had some critical comments to make as usual.
