McFly’s Tom Fletcher gives first look at Strictly Moves as he brings his dance partner on stage in Manchester
McFly star Tom Fletcher had a special guest to present on stage in Manchester last night.
The singer, 36, was performing with fellow students Dougie Poytner, Danny Jones and Harry Judd at the AO Arena as part of their Young Dumb Thrills tour.
But it’s not just a cross-country tour that Tom has to worry about.
That’s because he’s competing in Strictly Come Dancing 2021 and will make his official competitive debut on Saturday night.

Last weekend, viewers saw him paired up with Amy Dowden for the BBC One series on the colorful launch show.
And with little time left before his first dance, Tom took the opportunity to bring Amy on stage in front of an energetic Manchester crowd.
The audience cheered as Amy was introduced to the stage, with her kissing Tom as she walked in in front of thousands of people.
âWe are dancing Cha Cha Cha on Saturday,â he told the raving crowd.
He then gave an impromptu sample of what viewers can expect on Saturday night.
âHoly shit,â Dougie yells repeatedly as Tom puts his guitar aside and gets into position.
Harry then gave them some music on the drums to do some movement – and it was impressive.
As they finished their brief groove, Harry shouted, âTom wins.
“Are you going to vote for me and Amy on Saturday,” he asked the worshiping crowd in a wave of screams.
Tom then jokingly mocked his Welsh dance partner as she said hello to the legion of McFly fans.
âI’m living my best life and I’m very lucky to be on tour with you amazing boys,â Amy added kindly.
This Saturday, the 15 celebrities will meet on the dancefloor for their first competitive dance of the 19th series.
Hollyoaks actress Katie McGlynn, Olympian Adam Peaty, BBC Breakfast’s Dan Walker and Loose Women’s Judi Love are among the stars of the 2021 series.
Strictly’s first live show airs on BBC One at 7 p.m. on Saturday 25 September.
