Strictly Come Dancing’s five remaining contestants all performed two dances on Sunday night during the semi-final. Coronation Street actor Will Mellor and partner Nancy Xu performed the Paso Doble and Couple’s Choice and left Tess Daly flustered after the button burst on his trousers.
They performed their fierce Paso Doble to Uccen by Taalbi Brothers and left the audience wanting more.
Making their way over to the judges to receive their comments, Will could be seen fiddling with his costume.
He commented: “My button burst, I think,” with Tess taking a peek down to his trousers and asked: “Did it?”
Will laughed and confessed: “Bit tight these pants,” and left Tess feeling flustered: “Oh gosh, they are quite tight. Wardrobe malfunction.”
The presenter quickly moved on from the incident and asked the judges what they thought of Will’s performance.
Head judge Shirley Ballas commented: “Well there were quite a few things missing for me in this dance. You had the arrogance part, you came out and delivered a good strong message.
“But Paso Doble is very much built and has been on an oval shape, it collapsed every time you picked her up, your arms were too straight out to the side.
“These are basic fundamentals from the very beginning, they were very much missing for me and when you choose to use a cape at the beginning, you have to extend it.
“It is an extension, that reaches and goes, so I didn’t get a good start from the beginning, I do believe you give 100 percent of your heart, and I love that but this is the semi-final.”
Anton Du Beke claimed he loved the flamenco section of the dance, whilst Craig agreed with Shirley and said the cape “needed air”.
Talking to Claudia Winkelman after the judge’s comments, Will felt he had let Nancy down and said: “Rubbish to be honest. I worked hard and I have let her down a little bit there.
“I am not fishing for compliments, but she taught me right and I have gone too aggressive, she told me to be calm and I have just forgotten a few fundamentals.”
Nancy stopped Will and expressed she hadn’t been let down and he had performed exactly the way she wanted him to.
Receiving the scores from the judges, both Craig and Shirley awarded their dance a seven, as Motsi and Anton awarded a nine.
Will wasn’t the only contestant to suffer a wardrobe malfunction, as Helen Skelton caught the back of her heel in her dress and ripped the back.
Tess praised their performance and asked: “Is your dress ok? I know it got caught a little bit in your heel.”
Helen laughed it off as the judges praised her “wonderful” performance and despite the wardrobe error the couple still managed to secure a score of 37 out of 40.
Hamza Yassin was dressed in a kilt for his fast-paced Charleston performance, but viewers noticed an error in the wardrobe department.
As he danced and lifted his legs, the kilt lifted and exposed the red pants he was wearing underneath.
Hamza and partner Jowita Przystal scored an amazing 39 out of a possible 40, putting them top of the leaderboard after the first dance.
Strictly Come Dancing final airs Saturday from 7:05pm on BBC One.
