Strictly: Ryan Thomas cries at Adam Thomas’ performance
Strictly Come Dancing star Adam Thomas has admitted he was an emotional wreck just seconds before performing his latest routine with dance partner Luba Mushtuk on Saturday evening.
Reflecting on his American Smooth, the Emmerdale star, who had felt unwell in the run-up to the live show, was worried about the routine and relied heavily on Luba for guidance during the live performance.
Minutes before going onto the dance floor, the 35-year-old said his emotions got the better of him and he ended up in floods of tears on his knees while the VT was on.
Adam’s brother Scott Thomas shed light on the moment on their Mancs on the Mic podcast alongside Ryan Thomas.
Scott said: “I tell you why that was your best performance, because you gave that charisma you actually gave that energy where you just threw yourself into it.

“I think it was a lot of emotions, obviously people don’t know this at home but you broke down crying, you were watching the VT in the studio and then you broke down.”
Sharing further details, Adam went on to spill: “I watched the VT and obviously you can hear it in the studio and everyone can watch it on the screen and literally seconds before I was about to do the dance.
“I was on my knees crying and then the whole crowd was going ‘come on Adam you can do it…’ , and they [announcement] went ‘and dancing, the de de de, Adam and Luba!,’ I just had to pull it together last minute.”
The actor also admitted it was the first time he had asked his brothers to vote for him, as he feared being in the bottom two.
“I mean, I didn’t really know it… throughout the whole dance I was just looking at Luba going, ‘what am I doing next?’.”

But despite his doubts, Adam expressed his relief at getting through the routine and receiving 32 points from the judges, which included a nine.
He added: “We got through it. I got a nine… I didn’t expect to get the results that I’d gotten.”
In the run-up to his latest performance, the actor had been under the weather, leaving Luba to appear on Strictly: It Takes Two alone on Friday night.
She told viewers art the time: “It is so strange to be here by myself. He is resting now.
“He just didn’t feel very well but he is resting and getting ready for tomorrow night.”
Despite his high scores, the pair ended up in the bottom two on Saturday alongside Love Island star Zara McDermott and Graziano Di Prima.
After each couple performed again however, all four of the judges opted to save Adam and Luba.
