'It's the boost we needed this week': Strictly viewers are delighted to spot Mary Berry in the audience... but are reduced to tears as Judge Rinder's granddad wells up on-screen
It was a show full of surprises, as Ed Balls left the judges speechless with his Gangnam Style salsa, whilst Danny Mac scored his first tens of the series.
But Strictly Come Dancing viewers seemed more concerned by who was in the audience on Saturday night, as they took to Twitter to discuss the surprise appearance by Mary Berry.
But the joy didn't last for long as viewers soon confessed they had been moved to tears by the sight of Judge Rinder's grandparents on the show.

Nice to see you! Strictly Come Dancing viewers were more concerned by who was in the audience than on the dancefloor on Saturday night, after spotting Mary Berry in the crowd
Following her cameo appearance in the Strictly final last year, Great British Bake Off host Mary was back, and whilst she may not have said a word, it seems she stole the show.
'Are they trying to convince Mary Berry to do next series? #Strictly' one viewer wrote, as another quipped: 'Mary Berry deserves to be top of the leaderboard #Strictly'.
One fan wrote: 'just saw Mary Berry in the #Strictly audience so my night is made,' as another pondered: 'I wonder who Mary Berry's favourite was tonight #Strictly'.
Meanwhile, one excitable fan merely wrote: 'BEZZA!! I love Mary Berry #Strictly #scd2016'.

The judges were also clearly pleased to have the iconic baker in the audience, littering her name in a number of comments about the dances.
Following Daisy Lowe's energetic performance with Aljaz Skorjanec, Bruno remarked: 'That salsa... I'm sure Mary Berry would approve wouldn't you darling!'
And when discussing Judge (Robert) Rinder's foxtrot, Len Goodman quipped: 'It was like a Mary Berry souffle, light and fluffy with no soggy bottom!'

But viewers were more concerned with the TV judge's grandparents, who spoke to Tess Daly ahead of the star's dance.
Introducing Harry and Francis, Tess was interrupted as a misty-eyed Francis interjected: 'We're willing him on every step of the way!'
And following the dance Robert, blew kisses at his grandparents as he explained: 'It means the world to me that they're here. We're here having this fun because of them.'
