The local lad, and professional partner Karen Hauer, took on a party-starting Salsa routine at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom for the weekend’s show, netting 33 points and a place in the next live show on Saturday, November 23.
As the results show aired on BBC One on Sunday, November 17, the comedian and dad-of-one took to Twitter to say he was “over the moon” and thanked fans for keeping him and Karen in the competition.
The pair have begun their rehearsals for another week, and as the hard work gets underway the South Shields community has once again flown the flag for with supportive messages across social media, urging their favourites on.
Here is what you had to say on the Gazette Facebook page, and on Twitter:
