Giovanna Fletcher shares lovely Strictly backstage moment with ‘dance-in-laws’


Giovanna Fletcher has turned the idea of ‘in-laws’ on its head as she supports husband Tom Fletcher.

The I’m A Celebrity 2020 winner has been seen in the audience of Strictly Come Dancing as her other half competes for the Glitterball trophy.

Giovanna was seen wiping away tears on Saturday night as Tom and professional partner Amy Dowden were heaped with praise.

The dancing couple impressed with their paso doble to Amparito Roca by Jaime Texidor.

Craig Revel Horwood told Tom: “My goodness you did such a fantastic job, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Paso from a male celebrity that convincing,” while Motsi Mabuse praised him for “such a strong performance”.

They were then awarded a score of 38 thanks to their first 10’s, giving them their highest score of the series.

And just as Motsi gushed that she had ‘loved’ the performance, the cameras cut to Giovanna shedding tears.

Host Claudia Winkleman then later brought the moment to their attention, telling him that she had been ‘brushing back tears.’

But behind-the-scenes there was a bit of a union between both Tom and Amy’s families.

Taking to Instagram, Giovanna shared a snap of her, Tomy and Amy alongside her mum and Amy’s parents.

“Meeting the dance in-laws,” the mum-of-three shared alongside the post with to her 2m followers.

“So proud of @tomfletcher and @amy_dowden last night. What a dance!! What commitment!

“So happy to be there with my mum and meet Amy’s lovely parents too!!”

Giovanna also cuddled up to Amy for a snap, commenting: “I have so much love for this delightful woman @amy_dowden.”

Amy has firmly become part of the Fletcher family since pairing with Tom for the BBC One show.

The Welsh professional dancer has been teaching Tom’s sons to dance, even buying them special dance shoes.

Last month Giovanna shared an adorable video of Amy dancing with the couple’s eldest son Buzz.

Giovanna is heard cheering as Tom closely watched his son’s skills unfold.

Tom also proved just how much they’re getting on, sharing a selfie of himself with Giovanna and Amy sat opposite him on a table, writing: “I didn’t get a word in! @mrsgifletcher @amy_dowden.”
