Giovanna Fletcher shares adorable video of Strictly's Amy teaching son to dance

By Jessica Sansome

Tom Fletcher isn't the only person in his house learning to dance at the moment.

The McFly star made an energetic return to Strictly Come Dancing this weekend after being forced to miss a week.

Tom and his professional partner Amy Dowden tested positive for coronavirus two weekends ago meaning they had to isolate separately for 10 days.

The pair continued training via zoom and were finally reunited in-person on Wednesday ahead of Saturday night's movie week.

And the couple pulled off a brilliant comeback with their Jive to Johnny B Goode from Back to the Future, bagging a score of 32 from the judges.

But the Strictly bug is making its way through the Fletcher household.

Tom's wife, I'm A Celebrity winner Giovanna Fletcher, took to Instagram on Sunday with an adorable video of Amy dancing with the couple's eldest son Buzz.

Giovanna is heard cheering as Tom closely watched his son's skills unfold.

The author and presenter shared alongside the brilliant video: "The love. The joy. The respect. The concentration. The inspiration. The admiration. The elation.

"LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Xxxxx @amy_dowden @tomfletcher @bbcstrictly."

And the post was flooded with messages.

Tom's McFly bandmate Harry Judd said: "Buzz! Great job dude."

"Like wow!!!!!! What a talent all you guys, it’s actually mind-blowing! Love it," former Strictly winner Ore Oduba added.

Strictly pro Johannes Radebe added: "My poor heart."

Amy then shared the video to her own Instagram story, commenting: "Look at Buzz!! (I'll get him dancing Blackpool before you know it."

She added: "Adore the Fletcher household! Sorry you're stuck with me forever now guys."

Tom also proved just how much they're getting on, sharing a selfie of himself with Giovanna and Amy sat opposite him on a table, writing: "I didn’t get a word in! @mrsgifletcher @amy_dowden."

Tom and Amy safely made it through to week four of the BBC One dance competition on Sunday night.

Hollyoaks actress Katie McGlynn became the second celebrity to be eliminated from Strictly alongside partner Gorka Marquez.
