BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid performed a near-perfect dance on tonight's episode of Strictly. The Croydon-born host scored 39 out of 40 from the judges, after a stirring, passionate pasa doble alongside her professional partner Kevin Clifton. Darcey Bussell, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli all gave the Crystal Palace fan a perfect 10, while even notoriously tough-to-please judge Craig Revel-Horwood was moved to award Susanna 9 out of 10. The former Croham Hurst and Croydon High pupil's 39 was the highest score of the series so far, though her feat was matched tonight by Coronation Street actress Natalie Guemede. Such has been Susanna's Strictly success that some are even suggesting it might rub off on her beloved Palace. Selhurst Park mascot Pete the Eagle tweeted: "Wow! @susannareid100 just got the highest score of the series in Strictly! That must make her the bookies favourite...for the Palace job!"
