Strictly Come Dancing viewers couldn’t believe their eyes when they spotted Hollywood actress Famke Janssen in the front row on Saturday night.

The X-Men star was seen clapping and smiling in the live studio audience as the eight remaining couples battled it out for a place in Blackpool.

Eagle-eyed fans instantly were amazed to see Famke, 55, sitting beside former Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh , 37, and rushed to Twitter to comment on the film star’s presence.

While it is not known why Famke attended the show, fans speculated she could be in the UK filming series two of The Capture, while others are convinced she’s simply a big fan of Strictly.

Another fan questioned: “Spotted Famke Janssen in the Strictly audience. Does that mean series 2 of The Capture is currently filming here?

While a third was sceptical of the star’s appearance: “Is that Famke Janssen in the audience?”

Meanwhile one sharp-eyed fan noticed the famous guestlist.

They tweeted: ” So we have Karen, Bernie and Gray from EastEnders, Tracy from Emmerdale, Kimberley Walsh and ummm…. FAMKE JANSSEN!? What a lineup.”
