Sara Davies, 37, shared an emotional clip of her and dance partner Aljaz Skorjanec, 31, backstage on Strictly Come Dancing yesterday. The Dragons’ Den star appeared visibly emotional as she bid farewell to fellow contestant Adam Peaty, 26, as he was voted out of the competition after losing in the show’s dance-off against Tilly Ramsay, 20.

Taking to Sara’s Instagram Story, Aljaz said: “Hello everyone, thank you for the support, for all the kindness we received after our Quick-Step.”

In response, the County Durham TV personality continued: “I know, I’m not going to lie, it’s been pretty tough, we have just had to say goodbye to Peaty and I just thought he was absolutely brilliant.”

Aljaz was also visibly upset over the Olympian’s exit as he grew misty-eyed while discussing his surprise departure.

He continued: “They both did and I think Tilly and Adam danced an incredible dance-off. Do you know what, I’m about to cry.”

Sara agreed: “So so proud of them both, just shows you how tough the competition really is.”

Aljaz also advised Adam to continue dancing even though his heart lies with swimming.

The latter and his dance partner Katya Jones performed a Jive to Little Bitty Pretty One by Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers one more time after finding themselves in the bottom two, but sadly it wasn’t enough to get them through to next week.

Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke all chose to save Tilly from going home, following her and Nikita Kuzmin’s Tango to Kings & Queens by Ava Max.

After the Olympian was eliminated, he sent a message out, criticising those who mocked him. 

Posting pictures of himself with Katya, he wrote: “What an experience @bbcstrictly has been.

“I’m so grateful for my time on this show, from the highs of performing in front of millions and the extreme challenge of learning a new routine within three days every week, it’s been incredible.”

He continued: “I didn’t know how much it meant to me until I got a bit emotional after my dance-off; however, I don’t think it was the dancing that pushed me over the edge, but the two years of the constant challenge with myself combined with the energy to win the Olympics and becoming a father at the same time.

“My emotions are one of my strongest attributes and I’m not ashamed to show that I’m human.

“It’s crazy to me because I thought I was ‘OK’ but I am not. We all have to wear a piece of armour to get the job done and it wasn’t until this week that I knew I could let it go. 

“I’m still healing from the trials and tribulations that elite sporting athletes go through but with that, I’m also adapting and learning from life. 

“Thank you Katya for being there every single day, you are incredible. I don’t have enough positive words for you and what an amazing person and dancer you are. 

“Thank you to everyone behind the scenes, you are brilliant. I’m so grateful for everyone who has made this experience so amazing. @tillyramsay you were incredible and I’m so glad you get to show how much of an amazing dancer you are again next week!”

Meanwhile, Sara shared a sweet selfie yesterday as she watched her son, Oliver, play football.

She typed: “No rest for the wicked! #footballmum this morning! Drove back up north after strictly last night, got in at 4am, a few hours kip and back up at 8am to support the little man at his big game.

“I’ve missed so much family stuff these past couple of months so the precious few moments I get for a bit of normality I’m clinging onto with both hands! 

“Even if it does mean freezing my butt off whilst struggling to keep my eyes open – the smile on our Oliver’s little face when he looked up and saw me walk into the ground (he didn’t know I was coming and had left the house with me fast asleep in bed still) was worth it all and more! #familytime.”

The Dragons’ Den star is mum to two children, Oliver, six, and Charlie, three, who she shares with husband Simon Davies.
