Speaking to The Sun, Simon explains: “I had accepted that I would be going home when I was in the dance-off with Pixie.

“I thought I deserved to be in the dance-off because the competition was so high on Saturday.”

After admitting that he wasn’t quite as good at opening the show as Caroline Flack, Simon adds: “So when I got through, I was ecstatic. It was a massive shock.

“But I’ve been reading social media and I’m a bit worried everyone’s going to hate me because a lot of people thought Pixie was a better dancer and didn’t deserve to go.

"But Len is head judge and he chose me. With his trained eye, perhaps he saw something the public didn’t. I just want to work hard and try not to let Len down.”
