When his stint was unveiled, a delighted Kelvin enthused taking part in the show was a ‘dream come true’.

The hunk said in an Instagram post back in September: ‘Hey guys, just thought I’d say how just absolutely I’m overwhelmed by the response I’ve been receiving so far. I can’t believe it, it’s a dream come true.’

Admitting he’s not the best dancer, the racing driver added: ‘Those who know me, after a few beers, I love music and I love to dance, but that doesn’t mean I’ll be any good! Once you put choreography and a few dance moves, who knows?’

This year’s Strictly has been fraught with drama after Paralympic star Will Bayley was also forced to pull out mid-series with a knee injury. 

James was the first celebrity to be eliminated from Strictly alongside pro Luba Musktuk, and following his exit the star was forced hit back at claims he had to be ‘calmed down backstage.’ 

Footballer Alex Scott also had to adjust to last minute change in partner during Halloween Week, after her professional partner Neil Jones injured his leg just hours before the live show.
