Marie Osmond was so giddy after her samba on the latest episode of Dancing with the Stars that she fainted and hit the floor with a thunk.

Producers quickly cut to a commercial break and when the show came back, Marie was up and OK. She and her partner eventually received 21 out of 30 points, which meant that as well as hitting the deck she was in the bottom two and will face the public vote on Tuesday evening.

Not a good night for the 48-year-old former pop star.

Jane Seymour and partner Tony Dovoloni fared much better with their rumba. Bruno Tonioli said: “The lady has gone steamy and sexy and yet never trashy, always Rodeo Drive.”

She scored 26 out of 30.

Better still was Scary Spice Mel Brown. She and Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced a samba, prompting Len Goodman to say: “You flew around that floor. It was fantastic.”

Tonioli called it ‘the best samba of the night’ and they were duly rewarded with first equal tally of 29 out of 30.
