The duo looked delighted with their scores as John told Claudia Winkleman their bond was stronger than ever, saying they have a "great relationship" as dance partners.

He added: "We've found us again this week. We said it's me and you, and nothing else matters." The pair even received a special message from former GBBO host Mary Berry, much to former contestant John's delight.
