Strictly Come Dancing star Tom Fletcher and his professional dance partner Amy Dowden's first dance back to the show has been revealed.

The McFly star, 36, and pro, 31, had to miss last week's episode due to them both testing positive for Covid with the duo since "self-isolating separately".

However, Tom and Amy will be returning to the dance floor on Saturday's episode following their quarantine period for the BBC One dance show's popular Movie Week.

The duo will be performing a jive to Johnny B Goode from Back To The Future. Tom and Amy's last dance on the show was a Cha Cha to Earth, Wind and Fire’s September.

Ahead of their comeback, the duo have been virtually rehearsing together during their quarantine period and sharing updates of their progress on social media.

Taking to Instagram on Monday, Tom shared two hilarious snaps of him practising his dance moves while on FaceTime to Amy as he quipped: "How it started vs how it’s going!"

He continued: "Isolation is NOT stopping team #MCFLOWDEN on MOVIE WEEK! Can’t wait to do this dance on Saturday! Giving it everything I’ve got. @amy_dowden @bbcstrictly."

It was revealed last month that Tom and Amy had both tested positive for Covid.

The BBC confirmed that the duo were "self-isolating separately" and would miss out on Saturday's live 2 October episode.

It had previously been announced that Tom had pulled out of McFly's Glasgow gig on Sunday 26 September due to feeling unwell.

A BBC spokesperson told OK! at the time: "Tom Fletcher and Amy Dowden have tested positive for Covid-19. The pair are now self-isolating separately following the latest government guidelines.

"While they will both miss Saturday’s live show, Strictly Come Dancing protocols mean that all being well, they will return the following week."

Amy took to Instagram to confirm the news at the time, writing: "Unfortunately @tomfletcher and I have tested positive for Covid-19. I’m not suffering any symptoms but am now isolating at home.

"I have no doubt that over the next 10 days my mind will be going crazy with choreography ideas ready to get back on the strictly dance floor for the live show in week 3!
