Strictly Come Dancing viewers thrilled after EastEnders star makes surprise appearance in the audience

Tracey was BACK!

Strictly Come Dancing viewers got a surprise on Saturday evening as EastEnders' barmaid Tracey popped up in the audience.

Actress Jane Slaughter - who's played the legendary soap extra for years - dropped by the BBC studios to support her co-star Davood Ghadami in the competition.

As host Tess Daly asked the audience: 'Is everyone ready for another weekend on the dance floor?', the camera then panned to show Jane clapping alongside 'Enders star and former Strictly finalist Kellie Bright, who plays Linda Carter.

And obviously fans of the show couldn't handle the excitement as they took to Twitter after spotting the Queen Vic barmaid.

One fan said: "Loving Tracey being there watching @DavoodGhadami #strictly #EastEnders".

Another joked: "Just seen Tracey from the Vic in the audience. Nice to see her having a night out 'cos she's had a hell of a time. #Strictly".

While a third excited viewer exclaimed: "TRACEY THE BARMAID IS IN THE AUDIENCE ON #STRICTLY!!"

A fourth added: "They let Tracey leave The Vic! Tracey for #Strictly 2018 please."

And the EastEnders stars definitely picked a good week to support Davood, who plays Kush Kazemi on the soap, as his latest performance scored an impressive 35 from the judges.

Elsewhere on the show It was a big night for Debbie McGee after she became the first of this year’s celeb faces to be given a perfect score.

Debbie was awarded 40 points for her incredible Tango routine as she and partner Giovanni Pernice performed to Black Eyed Peas’ ‘I Gotta Feeling’.

Even Craig Revel Horwood came out from behind the judges’ table to bow down at Debbie’s feet after her dance, before the star made Strictly history by getting the first 40 this early on in the competition.

It means Debbie topped the leaderboard for the third week running while unfortunately This Morning's Ruth Langsford and partner Anton Du Beke scored the lowest marks of the night after they lost their balance during their paso doble.

Poor, Ruth!
