TEARFUL Shirley Ballas comforted a crying Will Mellor after he dedicated his dance tonight to his dad.
Hollyoaks actor Wille and pro dancer Nancy Xu waltzed to Three Times A Lady by Commodores in memory of his father Bill, who died in April 2020 after being diagnosed with cancer two weeks earlier.
He became tearful after the performance and also left judge Motsi Mabuse speechless.
Judge Anton Du Deke described the footwork as “immaculate” and praised how they had moved together as a couple.
Nachher, Will wiped away a tear and admitted he still was unable to speak.
Stepping in for him, Xu also became tearful as she said: “We wanted to dedicate this dance to anyone who has lost loved ones and didn’t get to say goodbye.”
He earned 38 points out of a possible 40.
