STRICTLY Come Dancing fans are all saying the same thing after Tyler West's performance at the iconic Blackpool Tower.

Fans of the show have given praise to Tyler West after his "mind blowing" lifts during last night's show.

One fan said: "Tyler really does have rhythm and groove and the lifts were seriously impressive" whilst a second added: "Those lifts were mind blowing for a celeb to pull off and his synchronicity with the other pros was just incredible."

Strictly Come Dancing has returned to the iconic Tower Ballroom for the first time in three years due to the Covid pandemic.

It comes as Fleur East turned in the performance of the night, dancing a Couple's Choice to a Destiny's Child megamix and scoring the first 40 alongside her partner Vito.

    How Strictly helped Molly Rainford

    Molly Rainford is the youngest celeb in this year’s Strictly, however, she explained how the show helped her to grow from a girl into a woman.

    She said: “Strictly is definitely bringing out a different side in me, but it was tricky not feeling awkward about being that sensual and feminine.

    “Of course, it was important that this dance was more than a sexy rumba — we also wanted to show this romantic story and the passionate side of us.

    “But it was great to show the adult side of me and not just be the kid of the competition.”

      Aj Pritchard DUMPED by girlfriend just two months after leaving Abbie Quinnen

      Strictly star Aj Pritchard has reportedly been dumped by Zara Zoffany just two months after he left his partner of three years Abbie Quinnen.

      A source said: “AJ was totally smitten with Zara but as time went on she got bored of him.

      “It was all very intense on The Challenge and they fell for one another. But outside in the real world when they started dating it was all very different.

      “Zara is really outgoing and she thought AJ had changed. She really wasn’t happy and ended it.”

      Tony Adams opens up about his time on Strictly

      Opening up about his journey on the BBC dance show, the former Arsenal star told The Sun readers: “It was hard work.

      “I’m looking forward to getting back to what I know.

      “It was interesting learning a new skill in that amount of time. It was really scary.

      “I’ve been playing football since the age of six, so you’ve got something to fall back on.

      “When you’re doing something you don’t know about it, and aren’t very good at, it’s like ‘ahhhh, what’s all that about?’’

      “You should see the outtakes from my first dance actually.

      “It was frightening.

      “I’m hanging up my dancing shoes for good.”

        Could Tony Adams be on his way to the jungle?

        After bowing out of Strictly in week 8, former Arsenal star Tony Adams hinted he could be set to join I’m a Celebrity next year.

        Former King of the Jungle Harry Redknapp joined Tony on a panel at The Sun’s World Cup Preview this week.

        Asked if he was headed for I’m A Celeb by host Shaun Custis, Tony laughed: “That’s it, I’m on my way. What do you think, Harry?”

        Harry replied: “Oh absolutely. They’ll pay you a million quid.”

      • Joseph Gamp

        Why was there no dance-off in week 8?

        Usually, the public votes for their favourite performances of the night, putting two couples at risk of leaving the show.

        The couples then take part in an intense dance-off, where they battle it out to stay, leaving the final decision in the hands of the judges.

        However, due to a serious injury, Tony Adams, who was one of the celebs vulnerable of going home, had to make the choice to end his time in the competition.

        This decision meant the dance-off did not go ahead, and lucky Tyler West and pro-partner Dianne Buswell went through to next week’s show.

        How many siblings does Oti Mabuse have?

        Oti Mabuse has become one of TV’s hottest properties.

        After launching to fame on Strictly Come Dancing back in 2015, she made the decision to switch to ITV and join Dancing On Ice in 2022.

        But before that fans will remember her working alongside her sister Motsi on Strictly.

        However, the two siblings actually have another sister, who was once dubbed the “best dancer of the three”.

        Born in 1984, Phemelo, who is the middle child of the family, keeps away from the limelight as she works as a mechanical engineer in South Africa.
