"You went into this wanting to make us proud, and you've surpassed that. You've brought dance into our lives - made us dance on the kitchen tiles again and encouraged three little boys to shake their booties with great enthusiasm."

Ending the beautiful tribute, she added: "Hold your heads high and be proud of all you've achieved - and the friendships that have been formed whilst doing it! Xxx."

Amy, who on Sunday accompanied Tom to one of his McFly concerts, also had special words for her partner, but also to Giovanna for welcoming her into the family.

"I don't know where to begin! I have so much to say (as always). But as I said on the show I've had an unbelievable experience and time! @tomfletcher you always gave me your all with your humble, caring, hardworking attitude. I'm so proud of each dance we achieved together with our 'Amy/Tom' brand and how you always stayed true to yourself! We went out on a high with a number that meant so much to you and I love that I got to share this moment. I felt every step."
