I was so excited when Jamie was announced and I couldn’t wait to see what he could do, he looked like he was really getting into the idea of doing it and really happy to be there and to start dancing, it was such a shame that he couldn’t take part, and after finding out that he would have been partnered with Oti made me every more gutted as I think they would have been incredible. I really hope that Jamie does get to do it one year as I think he would be really amazing to watch.
I know that others may have different views, these awards are decided by my own opinion
