The adopted Mackem, who lives with her family in Boldon, has dazzled judges and viewers alike with her precise performances - and here's hoping her success continues this weekend.

Faye has not been away from the top of Strictly's leaderboard since the competition's start last month, coming joint-top in week one, second on week two and first again in week three's movie special with an incredible 36 points out of 40.

But can this week's dance deliver similar results?

On Saturday, 42-year-old Faye will don her Latin hat once again for a slow and sensual Rumba, performed to SIA's hit song Chandelier.

Partnered with Giovanni Pernice, who came runner-up in last year's Strictly with Debbie McGee, Faye will take on the only Rumba of the weekend - and the first of the competition so far.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine last week, the couple discussed life on Strictly - with Faye revealing that husband Michael and son Benjamin are getting on well with her professional partner.

Benjamin has also been giving his mum a few tips in the training room, learning some Waltz and Cha Cha Cha steps from Giovanni.

Last weekend saw Blue star Lee Ryan voted off the competition, following in the footsteps of Susannah Constantine, the first celebrity to be eliminated in week two.
