Strictly Come Dancing fans have praised this contestant for her incredible moves.

Last night's episode of Strictly (which aired Saturday, 23rd September 2023) seemed to get everybody talking. As well as Les Denis' dancing partner Nancy having a mystery injury, Angela's surprise leg lift left fans in awe, taking to social media to say she should win the show for the incredible move.

Was this just one of the most iconic moments of last nights #Strictly I wish I could do that !! Go Angela! You were amazing.

At 78, Angela is the oldest contestant to have ever appeared on Strictly Come Dancing.

And another joked, 'Angela Rippon in in her 70s, me in my 30s,' alongside an image of  Angela doing the high kick and a person in a full body cast.

While another wrote, 'My god, Angela Rippon’s dance will surely go down in #Strictly history. That was fantastic.'

And another wrote, 'Angela Rippon was unbelievable! That air split is unbelievable at 27 never mind 78! COMMON! She is SuperGran.'

And another said enthusiastically, 'Finally catching up on Strictly…wow! What’s Angela Ripon’s secret? Pep in the step if I ever saw one!!'

Looks like Angela could be a favourite to win this year's competition!

Stay tuned next week to see if she can top that incredible move.
