Strictly Come Dancing star Tom Fletcher has taken to social media to candidly address his concerns over this week’s “risky” dance routine. The next live show will see the McFly star, 36, and his dance partner Amy Dowden, 31, perform the Salsa to Watermelon Sugar by Harry Styles, in a “risky” dance routine that has left him worried about injuring his dance partner.
It is risky, I might drop Amy on her head
Taking to Instagram, the blonde-haired dancer told her 268,000 followers that she and Tom were pulling out all the stops for their Salsa this week.
Appearing in the dance studio, Amy hooted before panning to her exhausted-looking dance partner.
“Look at Tom!” she exclaimed, while grinning at the camera.
“Hi,” Tom said, before Amy burst into laughter.
“Look at us sweat, look at my top!” she said while holding out her hot pink sports top.
“Look how much I’m sweating!” she added.
Panning around the dancefloor, Amy explained why it was that she and Tom had been working so hard.
“That’s because these two – they’re pushing us,” she said while introducing two dance professionals who were standing at the side.
“We are taking risks this week, aren’t we Tom?” she asked her dance partner.
Tom replied: “It is risky,” as he added, “I might drop Amy on her head.”
Hitting back, the Welsh native firmly put down any suggestion that the McFly star was going to make a mistake.
“No you won’t, you won’t! But there is a chance, but you won’t!” she said.
“Or you might kick me in the head?” Tom suggested.
Agreeing, Amy replied: “Or I could kick him in the head, seriously, or knock you.”
Tom added: “You’ve got me a few more times today than I’ve [got you]”.
Vehemently denying her dance partner’s claims, Amy thanked the dance professionals before ending her story.
Following the pair’s Foxtrot to Fly Me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra on Saturday, Amy and Tom finished in fifth place with a score of 29.
Currently in top place on the leaderboard is Sara Davies and Aljaz Skorjanec following their Tango which scored an incredible 36.
On Sunday, actor Greg Wise and Karen Hauer were the latest couple to be eliminated from the competition following a dance off with Loose Women’s Judi Love and dance pro Graziano di Prima.
Strictly Come Dancing continues 7.05pm on Saturday on BBC one.
