“I’m sure you’ll understand that I’m disappointed not to be partnered with a celebrity on @bbc strictly for this series,” she wrote.

“It’s an amazing show to be a part of and I’m still so excited about all the group numbers, performing with some of our musicians and more.”

She finished by adding: “I’m also looking forward to supporting my fellow professionals and I want to wish all the couples the best of luck in the competition this year.”

During the episode, hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman paid a very touching tribute to Amy Dowden who is currently undergoing chemotherapy and is therefore not competing in this year’s competition.

The Caerphilly-born dancer went public with her cancer diagnosis back in May. In an exclusive interview for HELLO!star said: “I’ve been through a lot in my life and this is another hurdle.

“But if I’m positive and strong, I have a really good chance of getting back on the dance floor as soon as possible… Just don’t think it’s going to happen to you. I didn’t think it was possible to get breast cancer at my age. My mom had cancer breast, but she had it at a later age, in her 50s.”
