Adam Thomas has broken his silence after his controversial exit from Strictly Come Dancing over the weekend. 

The Waterloo Road actor, 35, and his pro partner Luba Mushtuk trailed at the bottom of the leaderboard on Saturday with their American Rumba to Dancing On My Own by Calum Scott, scoring 27 points out of 40. 

And on Sunday's episode, he became the sixth contestant to be eliminated from the show after losing out to Angela and Kai in the dance-off. 

But despite Anton calling the dance-off the 'closest one' so far this series, all four judges ultimately chose to save Angela and Kai - a decision which has proven to be controversial. 

Fans were left fuming that the 'wrong person' went home after the fearsome showdown between the two couples.

Speaking on the Spin-Off show It Takes Two on Monday, Adam broke his silence after the surprise axe from the show, admitting he 'knew he'd be in trouble'. 

He said: 'Ah, I mean the Rumba was definitely one of those dances that I wanted to do - probably not the best dance to do on the back of a dance-off!

'But you know what, I enjoyed it. I thought we did a fantastic job. A really good job. 

'So that being said we can leave with our head held high. '

Host Fleur East went on to ask about him about the dance off: 'Was it tough?'

'I mean,' laughed Adam, 'I knew going up against Angela we'd be in trouble. She's amazing!

'But look, if anyone was going to send us home, I'm happy that it was Angela. She's amazing and I mean she was just so elegant. But yeah I'm really happy for her.'

After the decision to send Adam home, not everyone was in agreement.

One fan took to X, formerly Twitter, to say: 'Only caught the dance off of this week’s #Strictly and it was clearly the wrong decision?'

Another said: 'Sorry, wrong decision. Adam had a lot of potential to keep getting better, his scores have been consistently climbing. 

'Angela is great, especially considering her age, but she has a lot of experience, and realistically she won’t get any better than she is now. #strictly.'

When asked by Tess about his time on Strictly, an emotional Adam praised his 'incredible' time on the show and revealed he had joined for his kids. 

He said: 'Seven incredible weeks, what a journey it's been. 

'I honestly thought I was leaving in week two and the fact that I've got this far I'm so proud of myself, I've had an amazing time from start to finish. 

'I came here to learn how to dance and I've learned so much more about myself. The confidence and self-belief I now have in myself, it's out of this world I have to thank all these guys up here.' 

He continued: 'What a bunch to be on this journey with, I'm just very, very lucky! I know my kids are at home now
