Claudia said: “Don’t worry, that’s fine,” as she asked a question to Nancy.

Nancy said: “I think that he did amazing. We wanted to dedicate this dance to anyone who has lost their loved ones and didn’t get a chance to say goodbye.”

Wiping away tears, Will said: “I’m alright, I’m emotional,” as he reassured his loved ones he was okay.

The judges then gave their scores as Will received an incredible 38 out of 40.

Both Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse gave Will a 10.

Strictly Come Dancing viewers watching were in bits over Will’s dance.

One said on Twitter: “Wow Will Mellor, blown away. Such an incredible, emotional dance that brought me to tears. A beautiful dedication.”

I can’t talk at the moment, sorry.

Another admitted: “Stunning @Mellor76 tears in my eyes and then the look up to what I believe was a nod to your Pops.

“@Nancy_xuxi you are brilliant too. You completely broke me.”

A third wrote: “@Mellor76 & Nancy have me in floods of tears. A beautiful dance. Made me miss my Dad even more.”

Will has previously opened up about losing his dad, Bill.

Speaking to ED!, Will said: “I just thought you’ve got to grab life. You’ve got to do things and say yes to more stuff and create memories and that really is what life’s about.

“You realise that when you start losing people. I just thought ‘what am I afraid of?’”

He said: “My dad passed away three days ago. It’s horrendous. What do you do when you lose your hero?

“I also know there are a lot of people who are going through this out there. I just want you to know I feel your pain.”
