Finally, Nicky managed to get his highest score of the season, making tonight's show his personal best!
And it certainly has been a long time coming, especially after he fell into the bottom two last week.

Nicky danced the Charleston and did an absolutely solid job, managing to get rave reviews from all the judges.
Yep, even grumpy Craig Revel Horwood gave Nicky good comments.
In fact, all four judges gave Nicky a big fat NINE!
So we say, come on #TeamByrne, let's go for the win!
Meanwhile, Victoria Pendleton and Brendan Cole did not have such good luck.
Despite Vic getting her abs out, Brendleton failed to inspire the judges with their salsa and the common thought was that Victoria's hip action 'lacked fluidity'.
Victoria looked totally upset and even had a little cry after she ran up the steps to speak to Tess Daly.
Did anyone else just really want to give her a massive cuddle?
We think it might have been Bruno saying: "You look fabulous... when you stand still" That pushed her over the edge.
