Tom Fletcher, 36, “couldn’t be happier” to have made it through to another week of Strictly Come Dancing, however this has not stopped him criticising his performance. The McFly member took to Instagram last night to speak out on what happened on the dancer floor, detailing a number of issues.

I know I could have danced so much better.

Tom posted a picture of himself and his dance partner Amy Dowden eating pizza after the show, still in their devil costumes.

He captioned the picture to his 2 million followers: “Two very relieved, very happy, very hungry devils.

“We are SO grateful to be through to dance another week.

“I was so disappointed with myself after my performance last night, aside from the mic mishap and the little slip, I know I could have danced so much better than that and I was getting prepared to be in that dance-off so I can’t thank you enough for voting for me and @amy_dowden and giving me another week on this INCREDIBLE show.”

He added: “Looking back now, although it didn’t quite go the way I’d hoped, I still loved everything about it.

“The makeup, the music, the dance, and now I get to spend another week learning another awesome dance and I couldn’t be happier about it. Thank you. We celebrated with pizza and showers.”

Fans were quick to comment to reassure Tom about his performance in the post’s comments.

Alsaandralessamc said: “Don’t be so hard on yourself!

“You guys danced very well.”

Fan page Amysdowden added: “Don’t be disappointed, you were still amazing!

“So proud of you both and can’t wait to support you for another week.”

Tom and Amy closed Saturday’s show with a tango to Highway to Hell, with the pair trying their best to ignore the blunders.

During the dance Tom appeared to fling his mic, with Tess Daly noting after the dance that it was missing.

Tess said: “Well done for carrying on.

“It is live and these things do happen, so you picked it up and you carried on.”

During the dance Tom did not seem flustered by his “mishap”.

Judge Anton Du Beke said: “The great thing about sitting here is that I can see everybody’s journey.

“Everyone is developing and everyone is dancing so well.”

He continued: “Unfortunately this wasn’t your best week.

“I can see your improvement through the weeks but this was just a bit loose.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2021 continues Saturday at 6.45pm on BBC One.
