Pamela Stephenson topped the 'Strictly Come Dancing' scoreboard last night (16.10.10).
The 80s comedienne wowed the judging panel with her dance partner James Jordan, who scored 35 out of 40 for their "mesmerising" rumba.
Judge Alesha Dixon told her: "That was so romantic, you were born to dance. Everyone in here was mesmerised."
The 60-year-old psychologist - who is married to Billy Connolly and currently works as a sex therapist - loves her time on the show and admits it has improved her confidence and sex life, despite being married for three decades.
She said: "My sex life has improved, even after 30 years of marriage."
Another female dancer to wow the panel was actress Felicity Kendal, who head judge Len Goodman has nicknamed Flexible Felicity.
The 64-year-old actress wowed the crowd with her rumba with partner Vincent Simone, and impressed with her daring moves.
Alesha said: "You are oozing sex appeal, your flexibility is incredible. I asked you last week to come out and blow me away, and you have."
Fellow judge Bruno Tonioli said: "I didn't know you could be so bendy."
Felicity was so shocked at the comments, she swore live on TV.
Meanwhile, rugby ace Gavin Henson failed to impress with his partner Katya Virshilas, as the pair earned just 22 points for their routine - a significant drop from last weekend's score of 28.
Former 'Coronation Street' actress Tina O'Brien was forced to pull out of last night's performance after falling ill with chicken pox.
However, the judges' marks only make up 50 per cent of the overall scores, and the public vote will decide who leaves tonight (17.10.10).
