The two couples received an incredible 39 points each and both can boast a whopping 11 score.
Unfortunately, that left Kate Silverton and her professional dance partner Aljaz Skorjanec, Dr Ranj Singh and Janette Manrara, and Seann Walsh and Katya Jones at the bottom of the scoreboard with a combined 20 points from the judging panel.
There were some more surprises however, as favourite Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton managed a whopping 35 points with a solid 10 on the board after their unusual Doctor Who Tango.
Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell also received the same praise from the judging panel with 35 points, and head judge Shirley Ballas even put her bets on the YouTube star getting to the Blackpool ballroom on the competition.
Next was former Red Dwarf actor Danny John-Jules and his partner Amy Dowden, as the pair received a solid 30 points from the judges.
This was a drop from their previous efforts as the performer’s Quickstep last week earned him his first 10.
Lauren Steadman and AJ Pritchard were just beneath them with 29 points.
Last week Charles Venn and Karen Clifton smashed the naysayers when they bowled over judges and viewers with their contemporary dance, but this week their Time Warp routine suffered a reduced score of 25.
Clearly excited to be doing Michael Jackson classic Thriller, cricketer Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse didn’t seem fazed by the scoring, as they also received 25 from the judges.
The bottom three in the competition was a joint triple tonight, as three couples really suffered with their dance routines.
Dr Ranj and his partner Janette put together a wonderfully heartwarming dance to Disney Pixar animation Monsters Inc., but it only earned them 20 points.
Despite the fact Dr Ranj had an incredibly cumbersome costume as the monster Sully from the film, judge Craig Revel Horwood warned the contestant he couldn’t use his “furry feet” as an excuse for all the mistakes.
Journalist Kate and her partner Aljaz delivered an immensely emotional performance, but the judges insisted she still had a way to go before reaching the big leagues of Ashley and Faye.
While Seann and Katya were completely blasted by Craig, who declared he “wouldn’t be surprised” if they were in the bottom two yet again tomorrow night.
Tonight also saw Nicole Scherzinger in the audience as she showed up to support her former Pussycat Doll bandmate.
The former X Factor judge even gave Ashley a standing ovation for her electrifying performance on the ballroom dance floor.
But who will end up going home tomorrow night? And will the public choose to save Seann and Katya from potential danger?
