Speaking to the Capital FM website, he said that the mum-of-five, who was eliminated last week, gave him some lovely words of encouragement after the show.

Sonny said: "I waited for her after she was voted off to say she’ll be missed and that sort of stuff, and she said to me, 'You’ve got to go out there now and you’ve got to win this thing' and I said, ‘If I win do you promise me I can get a signed Jamie Vardy top?'"

Sonny and partner Angela Egan have impressed fans

The 27-year-old is a huge fan of Jamie's team, Leicester City, and it sounds like he's also a huge fan of Jamie's wife.

"Rebekah Vardy will be a big loss backstage because she’s one of the kindest people, she always talks to everyone," he reflected.

The star also shared his excitement on making the semi-finals, saying: "I’m one week away from getting to the actual final, which is mad. In my eyes I’ve already won because I’ve got a lot further than I ever thought."
