In the first week, Jayde burst into tears after receiving a standing ovation on her Samba to Dirrty by Christina Aguilera.
The star gave a sassy, attitude-packed performance with her partner Karen, leaving the audience behind and the judges standing and giving thunderous applause.
Motsi Mabuse, who stood next to Shirley Ballas after Jayde’s performance, excitedly claimed: ‘Samba, you’re in trouble, you’ve never met this woman!’, while Shirley joked: ‘I haven’t seen that much attitude in week one – Just fantastic!’

When presenter Tess Daly asked her how she felt when she received a standing ovation for her performance, she put her hand over her face and looked down without being able to say a word.
After getting her score of 23 out of 40 from the judges, Jayde struggled to hide her emotions while paying tribute to Karen.
None of her fellow celebrities cheering when she received her score, Jayde said, ‘I love you all so much! If I think about it too much, I’ll cry.’

Turning to Karen, she added, “We get to do this once a week, and you’ll say it to your partners too. It’s all about you, honey.
“This Strictly experience is through you and I am so proud. It was a great time rehearsing with her, it was great.”
And in week two, when Scottish television host Kaye Adams was eliminated in the first public vote, Jayde and Karen won 26 out of 40 points from the judges for their Tango to Adele’s Rumor Has It.
The dramatic number saw Jayde wearing a glamorous red jumpsuit embellished with diamond detailing on the waistband and collar, with her hair in an updo.
Prior to her appearance on the BBC favourite, Jayde Adams revealed she is doing Strictly Come Dancing for her late sister Jenna, who died of a brain tumor 11 years ago at the age of 28.
The comedian shared how it was “so emotional for her” to take part in the BBC competition honoring her sibling – who studied contemporary dance at university.
