Strictly’s Adam Thomas ‘constantly’ beating himself up as he ‘nearly’ cried

Strictly’s Adam Thomas has ‘one day’ to learn routine

Strictly Come Dancing’s Adam Thomas admits he’s been constantly beating himself up following his performance last Saturday.

The former Emmerdale star was left highly emotional after his Tango routine with professional dancer Luba Mushtuk.

After the feedback from the judges, who pointed out a few mistakes in the dance, the 35-year-old started to become visibly upset.

In the end, he was awarded a total of 23 for his performance, which put him joint eighth on the leaderboard alongside Zara McDermott.

Speaking to BBC host Janette Manrara on Thursday’s It Takes Two, the contestant revealed how he’s feeling following his routine.

Janette asked: “You said on your socials that you have been beating yourself up after the performance at the weekend and how much you’ve been stressing over how it went.

“How much have you been trying to put aside that self-critic and stay positive.”

The actor revealed that he was close to tears when he was finished dancing and is always putting himself down.

He confessed: “I’ve just constantly got this little voice in my head that’s beating myself up but you know what, mistakes are going to happen.

“I nearly cried on national television but it is what it is.

“I’ve just gotta pick myself up and get out there this Saturday night and enjoy it and not give myself too much of a hard time.”

During the show, Adam revealed he’ll be dancing the Jive to Take On Me which is in The Super Mario Bros Movie.

Although he’s currently eighth on the leaderboard, all is set to change this weekend as the remaining contestants tackle movie week.

Currently, actor Layton Williams and Nikita Kuzmin are top of the leaderboard with a total of 36, four points away from top marks.

Following close behind is Amanda Abbington and Giovanni Pernice with an impressive total of 32.

However, the show sadly said goodbye to Les Dennis who failed to impress viewers at home with his routine after he was awarded 15.

Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday on BBC One from 6.20pm.
