Ricki Lake - Ricki Lake Wows Dwts Judges

Ricki Lake came joint top of the leaderboard on last night's (24.10.11) 'Dancing with the Stars'.

The former talk show host and her professional partner Derek Hough earned an impressive 29 out of 30 for their quickstep routine to 'Luck Be a Lady' and was thrilled to hear such positive feedback from the judges.

She said: "It is amazing because you really want to do your best out there. I'm just so happy that everybody liked it!"

Ricki and Derek shared first place with war hero J.R. Martinez as he and partner Karina Smirnoff also impressed with their quickstep.

Judge Len Goodman told him: "You are truly relentless, you just keep on keeping on. Tonight you have really come up a notch."

While Len was impressed with Ricki and J.R., he clashed with Hope Solo's professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy following their rumba to 'Seasons of Love' from the Broadway Musical 'Rent'.

After criticising their routine, Maksim lost his cool and said: "As long as the audience likes our journey, we're good."

Len then told him: "Let me tell you, Maks, the audience likes the effect. I've been in this business for nearly 50 years", to which the dancer retorted: "Maybe it's time to go."

Chaz Bono and his partner Lacey Schwimmer came bottom of the leaderboard after they failed to wow with their tango to the theme song from 'Phantom of the Opera'.

Other stars to perform last night included David Arquette, Rob Kardashian and Nancy Grace. The results are revealed tonight (25.10.11).
