TOM Fletcher broke down in tears as he opened up about his shock exit from Strictly Come Dancing.

The McFly singer and his partner Amy Dowden were eliminated from the competition last weekend and, while appearing on spin-off show It Takes Two, he was overcome with emotion.

Tom got emotional as he discussed his exit

As he discussed their exit, Tom, 36, said: ...I'm only crying because I had the best time and I am so lucky to have done the show....

Tom joked he'd end up crying when he and Amy were shown their best bits and told host Rylan Clark: ...Don't be nice to me. I will cry and when I start crying, I won't stop....

Discussing their performance to On My Own from Les Misérables, Tom admitted that leaving the show after the dance was ...kind of perfect....

And, revealing that he had a personal connection to the song, Tom added: ...You don't want to let them down, and obviously it's Les Mis and everyone loves Les Mis, it's an amazing song so you know there's things like that. But you try to put it to one side....

Tom and Amy's exit came amid yet another ...fix... row from fans with some claiming on social media that the judges had voted strategically to keep certain acts safe.

After Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin scored a perfect 40, one fan wrote on Twitter: ...The judges are definitely trying to keep Tilly out of the dance off with them scores it’s actually laughable!!!! The best dance of the night has been Aj and Kai and that’s on fact....

But dad-of-three Tom focused on the good times he'd had during his time on Strictly and, after it was revealed he'd be leaving the show, he told host Tess Daly: ...Honestly I’ve had the best time, I’ve loved every second of it.

...I’ve made the best friend in Amy, you’ve been amazing thank you so much for teaching me how to dance.

...I know it was a struggle at times. It’s an amazing show, everyone that works on it, all of you guys have been amazing, I’ve loved getting to know you.

...Thank you so much, it’s been the best experience and I don’t regret a single minute of it, so thank you everyone so much. I’m gutted to leave....
