    Helen Skelton gave fans plenty to talk about after her latest dance on Strictly Come Dancing – because she appeared to include a middle finger in her routine.

    The Countryfile presenter, 39, topped the leaderboard during Friday's (December 2) quarter-final with a whopping 39 points from the judges.

    Helen and her dance partner Gorka Marquez performed a fiery Couple's Choice routine to Mein Herr from Cabaret – and it's fair to say they stole the show in more ways than one.

    Helen won a standing ovation for the powerful routine, but fans have also hailed it her "revenge" dance following her split from ex husband Richie Myler.

    And Gorka's fiancée Gemma Atkinson was clearly watching as she has now thrown her support behind Helen after the dance.

    The Casualty actress took to Instagram to point out Helen's "subtle middle finger" during the performance, posting a clip of the routine.

    Gemma had a giggle as her caption read: "It was the subtle middle finger for me [laughing emoji]. Yes, girl!"

    Eagle-eyed Strictly fans have dubbed the dance Helen's "revenge" routine as they reckon the presenter was sending a message to her ex.

    One fan shared a picture of Princess Diana in her so-called 'revenge' dress and tweeted: "The parallels. Oozing confidence. Completely owning herself. HELEN!"

    Another said: "Helen Skelton's revenge dance is the most iconic thing I've ever seen on Strictly btw."

    A third wrote: "Absolutely loving Helen Skelton from last night's Strictly. Makes Princess Diana's revenge dress look tame."

    The fans were referring to the late Princess' famous black dress she wore on the night King Charles confessed to cheating on her in a 1992 documentary.

    Helen announced the split in April, telling fans on Instagram that rugby player Richie had left the family home.

    It came just months after she had welcomed their third child, baby Elsie, and the sportsman is now expecting a baby with his new girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill.
