The competition is certainly hotting up on Strictly and it appears that Kimberley Walsh is set to reach for the stars on Saturday night's show.
The Girls Aloud singer, 30, has pulled out all the stops for this week's performance and viewers will see her perform in a suspended hoop more than six feet above the stage.
Kimberley and her partner Pasha Kovalev were seen practicing their moves on Friday night and by the looks of things the singer has mastered the tough routine.

Kimberley was dressed in a pair of black leggings and two vests one of which boasted a queen of hearts print across the front.
The singer will no doubt be slipping into sparkling ensemble for Saturday night's performance in a bid to secure points to move up the leader board.
