Strictly judge Motsi Mabuse was left too emotional to speak tonight after one contestant's moving performance.

In a clip shown before their couple's choice routine, the table tennis champion described how he was born with arthrogryposis - a condition which affects his hands and feet.

The 31-year-old said: "I didn't think I would struggle as much as I am with just balancing and things like that but you know the hard things you go through make Saturday all the more enjoyable.

Mike Bushell reveals his Strictly weight loss as he makes an appearance on Loose Women with partner Katya JonesDuring their time on the show, Russian dancer Katya was asked about her now infamous fall during the couple's live performance on Saturday – and the cruel remarks that followed suggesting she was drunk. "In the dance hall, it's such a normal thing [to fall over]," she explained. "I just wanted him to carry on – that's all I cared about.

"I had a great childhood but it was really challenging. I was born with a condition called arthrogryposis which affects my hands and my feet.

"I had to have [my feet] broken and put back in place but there was nothing the surgeons could do with my hands.

"When I was seven I went to St Ormond's Street and was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. As a seven-year-old to have cancer was so scary but the doctors and nurses were just amazing, they gave me positivity."

Will's mum Chrissy Bayley added: "When he was born his toes were facing each other and his feet were over.

"He did have a lot of corrective surgery and didn't walk until he was three and a half but where there's a will there's a way so he used to walk on his knees."
