He told IE backstage: “Maybe you shouldn't wait till you're 72 to start dancing!”

Rivera dressed up as his friend Donald Trump, complete with blonde wig and spray tan, while his partner, Edyta Sliwinska, channeled Trump's wife Melania.

Trump’s ex-wife Marla Maples thinks the Republican frontrunner would like the Fox News senior correspondent’s get-up.

“I'm sure Donald will get a kick out of it,” she said backstage to IE.

Whatever happens @DancingABC, I'm sure there's no future for me either as a dancer or @realDonaldTrump impersonator

Maples and her partner Tony Dovolani heated up the dance floor with a tango. Backstage, she shared her excitement for her former step-daughter, Ivanka Trump, on the birth of her third child.

She said: “Ivanka's the most beautiful mommy, so proud of her.”
