Pamela Stephenson has scored straight 10s for the second consecutive week on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 61-year-old former comedienne - who is partnered with professional James Jordan - received top marks from each of the BBC One show's judges in last night's (11.12.10) semi-final after performing a faultless quickstep.
Craig Revel Horwood told the pair: "One word, three syllables, starts with f. Fabulous!"
Dressed in matching top hat and tails, the couple's routine to Irving Berlin's 'Stepping Out With My Baby' drew a rapturous applause from the audience, and even resulted in a standing ovation.
Len said: "You are a class act and that was brilliant."
Meanwhille, Bruno Tonioli described the psychologist - who is married to comedian Billy Connolly - as a "Broadway babe".
He added: "The Broadway babe! It was a beautiful correct quickstep, pure cinematic joy."
However, Pamela and James weren't the only contestants to draw praise for their routine from the judges and audience alike.
Former 'EastEnders' star and her partner Artem Chigvintsev received a standing ovation for their sizzling rhumba, receiving a near-perfect score of 39.
Bruno gushed: "That was ravishing darling, you are a goddess of love. The quality of your dancing is of a standard that's professional. This was brilliant."
Pamela and Kara - alongside fellow semi-finalists Matt Baker, Gavin Henson and Scott Maslen - will now wait to hear which two acts have received the lowest combined scores and will be exiting the competition tonight (12.12.10).
