Strictly Come Dancing: Viewers are all saying the same thing after Helen Skelton blew judges away with her sexy cabaret dance… after her split from ex-husband Richie Myler

Strictly Come Dancing fans were left blown away by Helen Skelton‘s ‘sexy’ routine during Friday’s live show, claiming it was her ‘revenge’ dance after her split from Richie Myler.

The impressive number saw Helen show off her dance moves in a petite black mini dress and heels as she climbed across Gorka’s back, did the splits and was hoisted into the air by an array of backing dancers.

She received a standing ovation from the audience and viewers were quick to take to Twitter to heap praise on Helen for her very ‘sexy’ dance.

Some viewers claimed the raunchy dance was her way of getting ‘revenge’ on her ex-husband Richie Myler following their recent split.

Fans quipped the intense routine was Helen’s version of Princess Diana’s now-famous ‘revenge dress’ – referring to the Christina Stambolian black ruched mini dress she wore on the night King Charles confessed to being unfaithful in a 1992 documentary.

Helen shared her devastation in April when rugby league player Richie, 32, moved out of their family home just months after she gave birth to their third child.

Claiming her dance was her ‘revenge’ on her ex-husband, one viewer wrote: ‘Just caught up on last night’s Strictly and I think we can all agree that Helen Skelton’s fantastic performance was the equivalent of Diana’s “revenge dress”.’

‘Absolutely loving Helen Skelton from last night’s Strictly. Makes Princess Diana’s revenge dress look tame,’ another added.

A third penned: ‘Helen Skelton’s revenge dance is the most iconic thing I’ve ever seen on Strictly btw.’

While a fourth said: ‘Helen Skelton does revenge as a dish served red hot and with very much sass #strictly *applauds*.’

Wow! The number saw Helen show off her dance moves in a petite black mini dress and heels as she climbed across Gorka's back and was hoisted into the air by an array of backing dancer

Helen’s cabaret dance proved just as much of a hit with judges as she topped the leaderboard in joint first place alongside Will Mellor and Nancy Xu.

Giving gushing feedback, head judge Shirley Ballas said: ‘Wow you have grown so much, what a sensual performance, it was off the charts and a memory I will treasure forever. Is this really a mummy of three or the shy timid girl we saw on week one!?’

An astounded Anton Du Beke added: ‘I got emotional as I just thought ‘go on!’ and it makes me ecstatic to see you dance!’

While Craig Revel Horwood said: ‘This style is particular and I thought you did one of the most brilliant jobs so well done!’, and Motsi Mabuse added: ‘That was all about you! You were a leader, commander and you had intention, what a strong performance’.

Overall they scored 39 – one point of a perfect 40 – with three tens from Shirley, Motsi and Anton, and a nine from Craig – the same marks as her co-stars Will and Nancy.

It comes after Helen was also seen seeking ‘revenge’ against her estranged husband by clearing his belongings out of their home and selling them on a TV show.

Strictly Come Dancing contestant Helen flogged an antique vaulting horse, which was given to the former couple as a wedding present, as well as a Victorian dentist chair and two Art Deco armchairs. 

A source told The Sun: ‘Helen needed a huge sort out after the break-up and despite some of the items possessing many memories, she felt it was best she sold them on.’

First place! Overall they scored 39 - one point of a perfect 40 - with three tens from Shirley, Motsi and Anton, and a nine from Craig - the same marks as her co-stars Will and Nancy

She sold a total of 18 lots which fetched £965 at auction, with the star saying on the show: ‘This is a great opportunity to get rid of a load of stuff.’

Helen revealed in April she had split from Richie after eight years of marriage in a statement on her Instagram Stories, where she told how Richie had ‘left the family home’.

She said in the statement: ‘Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co parent our small children.’

It came just four months after they’d welcomed baby daughter Elsie Kate. The exes also share Ernie, six and Louis, five. 

Richie then moved on with Stephanie Thirkill, the daughter of the multi-millionaire president of Leeds Rhinos, and they are expecting their first child together.
