Strictly speaking star Will Mellor has revealed he was in tears this week as he learned a dance routine to one of his late father’s favorite songs.
The Four Pints actor, 46, suddenly lost his father Bill in 2020 – just two weeks after he was diagnosed with cancer.
Will appeared on Thursday’s Loose Women with his professional dance partner Nancy Xu and admitted he was struggling to get through rehearsals.

He continued, “I want to do it right as I want to celebrate him. He’s one of the reasons I do Strictly. I want to embrace life and embrace it.”
Will has said he’s in it to win it, adding: “It’s like climbing a mountain. It’s really hard, but when you get to the top it’s all worth it.”

Last week, Will and Nancy watched Robbie Williams’ Quickstep to Soda Pop with Michael Buble.
They earned 33 points, placing seventh in the leaderboard.
Back in September, Will opened up about how his father’s death has changed his perspective on life and pushed him to try new things.
The star admitted the loss had “crippled” me and “changed everything” – the star shared that the grief prompted him to finally go to the dance competition.
The Hollyoaks star told MailOnline: “I’ve been asked before, it’s just the right timing. I would generally say no to these things because I was always worried about what other people would think and what they would say. But then I lost my father in 2020 and everything changed.

“It crippled me and I just thought I’ve got to pack life and do things. It really changed my way of thinking.”
And while the loss changed perspective for him, Will’s participation on the show is also an ode to his mother, Shirley.
The star shared that Strictly is her “favorite show” and went on to say that he does it to bring something positive into her life too.
“She’s been having the worst time lately so I just thought we need something positive in our lives. She lost her husband, brother-in-law and sister-in-law within a year, so I’m doing this for me, but also for her,” he said.
