Tom Fletcher showcases his ripped torso as he strips off for spray tan

‘Finding my inner sexiness!’ Tom Fletcher showcases his ripped torso while stripping off for a spray tan as he returns to the Strictly ballroom after contracting Covid


Tom Fletcher has clearly been putting in the hours in during dance rehearsal as he showcased his ripped torso in an Instagram post on Friday.

The McFly band member, 36, stripped down to a pair of shorts for ‘a good old spray tan’ in preparation for his salsa performance during Saturday’s episode of Strictly Come Dancing.

Striking a pose while displaying a pair of rarely seen tattoos, including an unmissable star on his chest, he wore his light brown locks in a tousled hairdo.

The singer wrote in his caption, ‘Ok, I know it’s not very “me” posting a shirtless pic (says the man who’s been naked on the cover Attitude mag).

‘But in the name of finding my inner sexiness for the salsa tomorrow (which has a pool party theme) I’m back to the good old spray-tan this week and very happy about it,’ he concluded. 

Tom and his dance partner Amy Dowden were both forced to miss the show two weeks ago after announcing they’d tested positive for coronavirus. 

A crisis meeting is said to have been held after Tom and his partner Amy tested positive for Covid despite having been double-jabbed.

Strictly bosses were reportedly considering ‘scrapping the show’s live audience and re-introducing quarantine bubbles for celebrities and their professional dancers,’ in the wake of Tom and Amy’s positive tests. 

A source has revealed ‘there is nothing they aren’t willing to consider’ in order to keep the show rolling full steam ahead.

They told The Sun: ‘These would be radical steps to take to increase safety on the set, but given the difficulties producers have had over the past two weeks, there’s nothing they aren’t willing to consider.

‘But if they did have to go down this route, it would be a logistical nightmare and might leave some of the stars with a dilemma as many of them are juggling their dance training with their day jobs.’

Strictly bosses previously admitted they ‘aren’t bulletproof’ to COVID-19 in the wake of Tom and Amy’s positive tests.

It’s understood that show producers were quietly ‘dismayed’ after hearing of their shock diagnosis on Sunday, with the pair now ruled out of Saturday’s show while they recover from the contagious respiratory bug.

Amy, who received her COVID-19 vaccination prior to contracting the illness, had previously accompanied Tom and his McFly bandmates during their current UK tour.

But the BBC told MailOnline there are no plans to increase testing because they are ‘satisfied’ the measures they currently have in place are as good as they can be.

‘Tom and Amy’s positive test was the worst possible news,’ an insider told MailOnline.

‘After days of negative headlines about dancers not getting the jab, producers had hoped the start of the show would see them turn a corner and put this story to bed.

‘So for Amy and Tom to go down with COVID was absolutely crushing news and left everyone dismayed.

‘But BBC bosses are refusing to panic. They believe the measures in place are as good as they can be. They’ve always been clear that nothing is going to be bulletproof and producers can only follow Government guidelines.

‘They are now just hoping nobody else comes down with the virus because that would really put the show in danger of being cancelled.’

The new series of Strictly has already been embroiled in controversy over reports that three of the professional dancers are unvaccinated, although there is no suggestion that either Tom or Amy were among this number.
