"You'll start to see people starting to put runs together and really start improving," Ore continued, explaining how the former magician's assistant could be looking good to go all the way. "That's all you want; you want to see them improving."
Last weekend, Debbie received a standing ovation for her Frankenstein-themed Charleston during the Halloween special, scoring a massive 39 points from the judges to steal the top spot on the headboard yet again.
The week before, her romantic Rumba also saw her beat her competitors, coming ahead of Joe McFadden, 41, with his passionate Paso Doble as well as frontrunners Aston Merrygold, 29, and Alexandra Burke, also 29.
Ore and Debbie herself both attended the Pride of Britain Awards in London last night, where she was pictured looking cosy with her professional dance partner Giovanni Pernice, 27.
