Strictly Come Dancing viewers praise Ellie Simmonds' 'dreamy' waltz as judges get emotional

Paralympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds impressed judges and viewers alike with her 'dreamy' waltz in the second Strictly Come Dancing live show. The gold medallist, who asked for another dance at the start of the week, was praised by viewers who called her and Nikita Kuzman's waltz 'dreamy' while the judges were full of praise scoring her 30 points.

Motsi Mabuse said Ellie and Nikita gave her 'goosebump' praising the relationship between the two: "I love the expression in your arms and your hands, but mostly between you two, there was a little section over there when you were dancing and you just looked up at Nikita and you look into his eyes and you smile and I just got the biggest goose bumps."

And Maggiebob also tweeted: "This is a really dreamy waltz from Ellie & Nikita."
