Tom might be missing the gruelling dance lessons, but he has been well cared for by his wife Giovanna Fletcher and their three kids, Buzz, Buddy and Max whilst self-isolating.

The 33-year-old has also been spending time stretching. Sharing a picture of himself on top of a yoga mat, he wrote on Thursday: "Killing time in quarantine with some stretching. My body isn't happy with what I've been doing to it for the last couple of weeks."

Tom tested positive for coronavirus after the first live show but on Monday he reached out to fans to reveal that he was feeling "fine".

"Hi all, I know that a lot of you have seen by now that I tested positive for Covid. Thank you so much for all your messages, I'm fine," the clip began.

"But it means that I'm obviously isolating, and I can't finish the McFly tour, which I am sorry, so gutted about, it hurts so much letting you guys down, you have no idea."

The father-of-three went on to explain the shows would be going on and announced that a "good friend of ours" will be standing in for Tom.

The star also apologised for missing week two of Strictly. "I'm sorry to all of the Strictly team, to my fellow contestants, my brilliant partner Amy. I'm sending you loads of love Amy. I'll be watching you all Saturday, cheering you all on."

He then jokingly added: "I'll be back for week 3. Amy, I'm going to dance my little human heels off to hopefully get more than a four from Craig."
