FIRST DANCE SCORES

I thought it might be fun to include the average scores awarded by all the judges for the first dance of each celebrity. In some earlier series, the contestants were split into groups and the first dance wasn’t necessarily on the first night, or even the first week, but this table shows the lowest, highest and average scores awarded by each judge of all the first dances they’ve scored, with the lowest and highest total score for any celebrity, and a combined average total score for all celebrities. The highest total score for a first dance is 35 for Zoe Ball & Ian Waite’s waltz from series 3, while the lowest total score is held by Quentin Wilson & Hazel Newberry’s cha cha cha from series 2.
