He may have had to pull out of the show after injuring his foot, but Jamie Laing still at least managed to make it to the first Strictly Come Dancing live shows.

On tonight's (September 21) episode, the Made in Chelsea star was sat in the audience – broken foot and all – as he cheered on his former co-stars.

Co-host Tess Daly also stopped him for a quick chat during the show too, the presenter admitting they were sorry to see him have to leave the competition before it even began.

Speaking of being there, Jamie admitted: "It's amazing, because everyone out there is just so incredible, everything about it is amazing, so it was very upsetting."

The reality star also gave an update on his foot, saying: "I've got the boot on, Oti [Mabuse] signed it. It's mending, it's doing OK so it will be fine."

He also revealed he was "freaking out" because he was "nervous" for all the other contestants.

Jamie's replacement Kelvin Fletcher later spoke about joining at the last minute, admitting he felt like "the new kid at school" as he gave a shout-out to Jamie.

Speaking recently, Jamie opened up about doing the first dance on the launch show before breaking his foot, recalling that then-partner Oti made him continue dancing despite him feeling pain in his foot.

"I grabbed Oti and said, 'Oti, something's happened in my foot.' And she just went, 'Dance!'"
