Continue speaking before his performance Strict, he commented, “I’m SO gassed to join the Strictly family! When I started writing this, I was already getting cramps. It’s going to be a crazy incredible journey that will no doubt be SO far out of my comfort zone.

“It’s a show that means so much to me and my family, and I can’t wait to get some serious dancing on this shiny dance floor…with a side full of sequins.”

As for being in it to win it, he said: “Oh yeah, 100 percent I’d love to lift the Glitterball. I would be my mother’s favorite son for the rest of her life.

“To pick up the Glitterball by a 14-year-old who used to never speak to anyone or come out of his bedroom on a south London council estate would be an amazing achievement and a dream come true.”

At week four, the couple achieved a Strict first when they danced Couple’s Choice to a British garage megamix. They scored 37 points and took third place in the leaderboard.

For the BBC Centenary Special they danced to a remix of the Doctor Who topic and scored 32 points.

In week eight, West’s fiery Paso Doble was so good that Shirley Ballas got up from her seat. Craig Revel Horwood, meanwhile, said it was “not for me” as it was too “square and edgy”. Nevertheless, he did better than the week before with 31 points.
