Dancing with the Stars judges 'so impressed' by one couple as latest choreography described as 'incredible'

Suzanne Jackson clocked the highest points from judges on this week's Dancing with the Stars, as Carl Mullan and Brooke Scullion set out to impress as well.

Following on from last week's season-opening episode, it was time for the girls to dance ballroom and the boys to try their hand at Latin.

First up was Brooke Scullion and Maurizio Benenato, who performed a quickstep. Judge Loraine Barry told her: "I am so impressed. The speed you have across the floor is incredible." They scored 23 points.

Next, Damian McGinty and Kylee Vincent danced a salsa. Judge Brian Redmond described it as "summery as sangria on a sunbed" and they earned 20 points.

Dr Marie Cassidy and Stephen Vincent were next on the floor with a tango. Arthur Gourounlian said: "It was a lovely dance but I want it to be more fierce and passionate, but your tango was strong." They received 16 points.

Following that, Kevin McGahern and Laura Nolan lit up the dance floor with a jive. Loraine Barry said: "Jeepers creepers, that was a great jive. I really like you and Laura, you two smashed it." They got 21 points.

Last week Stephanie Roche and Ervinas Merfeldas found themselves at the bottom of the leaderboard. This week they performed a foxtrot and scored 13 points. Arthur told them: "You look absolutely elegant and I love the partnership you have."

Leah O'Rourke and John Nolan were up next with an American smooth. Brian said the dance needed to be smoother, while Loraine described it as Hollywood glamour but encouraged her to let herself go a bit more. They scored 10 points.

Following on from that, Shane Byrne and Karen Byrne took to the dance floor to show off a highly entertaining cha cha, which earned them 12 points. Brian said: "You taught me to be careful for you wish for, this week I asked for more entertainment value, and that's what you did!"

Paul Brogan and Salome Chachua turned the heat up with a samba, which saw them take 14 points from the judges. Loraine told them: "I acknowledged the entertainment value, it was sky high. I wanted to see more samba, but it was very clever."

After making history last week, Panti Bliss and Denys Samson returned for a waltz which earned them 19 points. "It just really proves the versatility you have, you looked beautiful in frame," Brian said.

The penultimate performance came from Suzanne Jackson and Michael Danilczuk, who danced a Viennese waltz. Arthur said: "That was beautifully executed, you are the one to watch in this competition." They got 25 points.

Finally, Carl Mullan and Emily Barker danced a paso doble. Loraine gave him a standing ovation and told him it was an amazing one man show, dubbing him as the most improved dancer of the week.
