Week six was one for the books, with all of our celebrities taking part in an emotional tribute week. While we didn’t see anyone head home, we did see one couple dance their way to the top and receive immunity ahead of the first dance-off of the season, next weekend.

The show opened tonight with a high-intensity performance by all of the pro-dancers to George Ezra’s Green Green Grass. Dressed in dazzling cowboy boots and bright outfits they danced their way across our screens – a completely infectious moment for everyone in studio and at home.

Rory and his partner Denys wowed the judges and the voters at home with their moving performance in tribute to Professor Fiona Mulcahy, one of the first doctors who treated him when he was diagnosed as HIV positive in 1996. Thanks to the judges’ scores and the public vote, Rory and Denys have now received immunity ahead of next week’s dance off.
