Many fans of the show chimed in in the comments section of the tweet, also jokingly thanking Jamie’s injury for allowing them to witness Kelvin’s dance moves.
One replied: “I love you Jamie but – yes thank god because I have never seen dancing like these 2! Wow.”
“If you don’t go back to strictly next year I will be writing a VERY angry letter to them,” said another.
Jamie reportedly landed awkwardly during the group dance on the opening episode of the show, causing a foot injury and forcing him to retract his participation in the show.
According to The Sun, he has damaged a tendon in his right foot, and has been spotted by paparazzi wearing a protective boot and using crutches.
