Strictly speaking, Hamza Yassin sacks THREE 10s when Shirley says his cha cha cha is “the best thing I’ve ever seen”.
Week 7 of Strictly Come Dancing got off to a great start on Saturday night when Hamza Yassin and his partner Jowita Przystal performed an incredible cha cha cha to the Four Tops’ ‘I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)’.
In fact, the wildlife presenter’s dance was so good that Shirley Ballas, Queen of Latin, called it “the best cha cha cha I’ve ever seen.”
Hamza and Jowita certainly set the bar high for the evening as they bagged an incredible three 10s with a near-perfect total of 39 points.

On last week’s Halloween special, both Ellie Taylor and radio host Tyler West topped the rankings with their sizzling performances.
But it was the end of the line for James Bye as he became the fifth contestant to leave Strictly Come Dancing as the EastEnders star faced Fleur East in the ghastly dance-off.
The remaining couples headed to the ballroom for a spooky-tacular Halloween special hoping to impress the judges, Craig Devil Horwood, Motsi Maboo-se, Phantom Du Beke and Head Judge, Scary Ballas and the voting public.
Both couples re-performed their routines, with James and his dance partner Amy Dowden performing their Charleston to Bumble Bee by LaVern Baker.

Then Fleur East and her dance partner Vito Coppola performed their salsa to Beyoncé’s Break My Soul to impress the judges and stay in the competition.
And when the judges announced their verdicts, all four opted to save Fleur, meaning James left the competition.
When asked by presenter Tess Daly about his time on the show, James said: “I’ve said this from the start, all I can do is go out there and do my best. I’m dancing against Fleur East, I did my best but she’s phenomenal.
Well done: In the end, it was Fleur and dance partner Vito Coppola who came out on top following a unanimous decision by the jury
Closing: James described his Strictly Come Dancing colleagues as “family” during an emotional farewell speech on Sunday night.
“I had the best time on this show and I have a friend for life [in Amy]all i can do is thank the family and i have a new family now.
“It’s a competition but you don’t feel that way backstage, you really feel like everyone has each other’s back and everyone just wants everyone to do their best!”
The dance-off wasn’t without controversy as the show faced another potential argument when it emerged Fleur East was allowed to repeat her dance-off performance after she fell over.
Well done: James and Amy were surrounded by their supporting colleagues before taking to the ballroom dance floor for their final dance
Fleur restarted her dance after a horrific fall that saw her ‘crash’ onto her partner, the moment not being broadcast or mentioned on the results show.
The Sun reports that the saxo hitmaker tripped over her prop and tripped her dance partner during her Salsa to Break My Soul by Beyoncé, with the decision they were allowed to start again once they had been checked out by medics.
A source said: “It was a deeply unfortunate incident and not Fleur’s or Vito’s fault at all. About five seconds later, when she was about to pull Vito in the support chair, her legs slipped.
‘She fell and took Vito with her. They landed incredibly hard – it was quite shocking and the audience gasped audibly. Poor Fleur looked stunned and devastated and no one really knew what was happening on or off stage.
Drama: The dance-off wasn’t without controversy as the show faced another potential argument when it emerged Fleur East was allowed to repeat her dance-off performance after she fell over
“Eventually the warm-up guy came and spoke to the audience while Fleur and Vito were checked out. They started dancing again and apparently this second version aired. There was also no indication of the fall from the judges.’
The source added to the publication that competitor James was “not at all bothered” by Fleur’s second chance and that he “really believed” she was the better dancer of the night.
A spokesman for Strictly Come Dancing told MailOnline: “Following an incident involving a prop at the start of Fleur and Vito’s dance performance, the decision has been made to drop proceedings to verify they have not been injured, and it has been done urgently.
Drama: It comes after Fleur addressed her Strictly Fall drama after it was revealed she was allowed to repeat her dance-off performance following a props error
“Since they had not started dancing prior to the incident, it was decided that they could resume performing once it was confirmed that they were capable of doing so.”
After the reports surfaced, the performer addressed the incident during a television appearance.
Vito said on Thursday’s Loose Women: “Basically what happened is the first few seconds of our number, I just fell on the chair. It was literally a bad fall.
“Everyone gasped but I showed them I’m fine and I can start again so thanks – I’m fine, I’m here today so all good. Many Thanks.’
Strictly Come Dancing returns on BBC One on Saturday at 6.55pm.
Speaking up: Now, Fleur and Vito have opened up about the controversy, explaining that she had a “bad fall” onto a chair within the first few seconds of the number
