Will Mellor tells his kids he’s fine as he continues to cry over his father’s death
Will Mellor was very emotional on the last episode of Be sure to come dance.
On the Saturday night (November 12) episode of the show, the actor waltzed to the song “Three Times a Lady” with his professional partner Nancy Xu.
He chose the song because his late father used to sing it to his mother.
In the introduction before the dance, Mellor was shown in a video call with his mother that he wanted to use the dance to “pay my respects to my father.”
Mellor’s father Bill died in 2020 just two weeks after being diagnosed with cancer.
Due to social distancing guidelines in place in 2020, Mellor was unable to personally comfort his close family.
After the waltz, which received 38 points from the judges, Mellor was very tearful and unable to speak. He once turned to the camera to tell his children watching at home that he was fine and not to worry about him.
Many Strict Viewers were moved by the scenes, especially given that Matt Hancock, the former Health Secretary who broke his own Covid guidelines, is also currently appearing on a reality show: i am a celebrity
“Will made me cry,” tweeted one fan.
“Will Mellor be crying on #bbc #strictly about losing his father to Covid and his dance partner Nancy saying it’s for people who haven’t been able to say goodbye to loved ones whilst Matt Hancock will be on the other side, to justify himself,” posted another.
A third wrote: “After watching Will Mellor dance, which Waltz dedicated to his father’s death during the Covid pandemic, the truth is that Matt Hancock is asking for forgiveness as he attempts to write a book that will changing the narrative of his role in all of this stays in my crush the more #Strict.”
A fourth wrote: “Will and Nancy are dancing on #Strictly and the message is such a stark contrast to Matt Hancock’s pathetic performance on #ImACeleb. Just highlights the absurdity, doesn’t it?”
Mellor was joint second at the Strict Ranking this week with 38 points. Check out the rest of the results here.
