Former Strictly professional questions Tom Fletcher’s dancing history ahead of the show.

In a recent podcast, a former Strictly professional questioned TOM FLETCHER’s dance background.

Former Strictly Come Dance pro Joanne Clifton, 37, questioned Tom Fletcher’s dancing history. Joanne discussed this with her brother, Kevin Clifton, 38, a fellow Strictly professional, on his podcast The Kevin Clifton Show.

“I don’t believe it will provide him a significant advantage.”

Kevin talked all things Strictly with his sister in one of his most recent podcasts (23 August), and they shared their impressions on this year’s line-up.

Tom, 36, was the first contestant to be revealed as the Strictly pros discussed what viewers should be looking out for.

“He went to Sylvia Youngs for dance training, so he has a little bit of ballroom and Latin,” Joanne explained.

“However, Sylvia Youngs is a kids theatrical school for when you’re a youngster.

“I don’t believe it will provide him a significant advantage.”

Tom was educated at London’s Sylvia Young Theatre School, where he met his wife, Giovanni Fletcher, when he was 13 years old.

“I think the general audience of Strictly doesn’t mind as much when a male celebrity has a little training; they don’t like it when a female celebrity has training experience,” Kevin said.

Joanne, on the other hand, does not feel Tom’s childhood training will help him on the show.

Tom has some large shoes to fill, Joanne and Kevin acknowledged, and they think he’ll be a tough competitor.

Harry Judd, Tom’s McFly bandmate, and Aliona Vilani won the show in 2011.

Giovanni, his wife, is the current Queen of the Jungle, having won the title in the most recent season of I’m A Celebrity. I Have to Get Out of Here!

“The thing about Tom Fletcher is that he seems to me to be in the same category as Harry Judd and Jay McGuiness, who both won from boy bands,” Joanne added.

“I believe he is pretty competitive.”

Jay, 31, from The Wanted, won Strictly Come Dancing with Aliona in 2015.

Kevin said of Tom, “I don’t know Tom Fletcher, but from what I’ve seen and heard, he appears to be a really pleasant guy, the type of guy people take to on Strictly.”

Both siblings are aware of the situation. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
