BLOG: I’m still speechless and I can’t thank you ALL enough

I’m writing this from a beach in Malaysia as my wife and I try – and repeatedly fail – to come to terms with an unfathomable last four months. It’s best if keep it short.


I said it many times and I’ll say it over and over again, I have loved Strictly Come Dancing since it first graced our screens in 2004. It has always been a dream of mine to take part in the show – I can honestly say the experience went beyond anything I could have ever dreamt!

Without my wife, the backing of my friends and family, the best partner and teacher a guy could ever ask for and YOU, the most unbelievable, supportive fans in the world, I simply couldn’t have done it.

Thank you for calling, texting, tweeting, paging, scrolling, all the above and below… I will be forever grateful. See you on Tour!

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Keep Dancing.
