They were back to work their dance magic to Aston Merrygold's Get Stupid as they took to the floor to perform a fast-paced Cha Cha Cha.  

Following a sexually charged Cha Cha Cha, Shirley told them: 'You definitely brought lots of sunshine! Cool, took it in your stride. What I'd like to continue is a strong leg action for more fluidity, you're a great performer but I want you to start working on flow.'

Quick to put a damper on the complementary chat, Craig added: 'Thought you were a little bit stiff, it's what Shirley was suggesting but I get booed!
