Stepping Out week two round-up: Denise Welch and her husband eliminated

Week two of Stepping Out was a mixture of highs and lows last night, as Denise Welch and husband Lincoln Townley became the first celebrity couple to leave the show.

But they weren't the only ones who left disappointed.

After a tough week of rehearsals, former Dempsey and Makepeace stars Glynis Barber and Michael Brandon failed to impress the judges. Their line dance routine was scored just 21 out of 60, putting them at the bottom of the leaderboard before the public vote.

Former Westlife hunk Brian McFadden and his wife Vogue Williams were far more impressive as they danced to Adele's Set Fire to The Rain. Their panel score of 47 put them in second place.

Next up, boxer Carl Froch's sizzling Bhangra dance with girlfriend Rachael Cordingley scored 34.

Denise and Lincoln followed the duo, in what turned out to be their last dance. But while they may be going home, they both seemed to very much enjoy the Rumba to Shakira's Underneath Your Clothes. They scored 26.

JLS star Oritsé Williams and his girlfreind AJ Azari proved themselves to be the clear frontrunners with an incredible 58 points, in no small part thanks to Oritsé's boy band training.

Finally, Laurence and Jackie Llewelyn-Bowen proved themselves the surprise hit of the night as they danced to Nat King Cole's Love Was Made For Me And You for a cheeky 36 out of 60.

Britain's Got Talent dance troupe Flawless then performed before the result of the public vote was revealed.

So it's goodbye to Denise and Lincoln, but who will be heading home next week?

Find out when Stepping Out returns to STV next Saturday at 6.30pm.
