He told me Mirror: & # 39; Last week was the most difficult emotionally. I had a bad cold and I didn't go to the races very often, & he says.

& # 39; The dress rehearsal was so bad that no one would look me in the eye. Katya said: & # 39; Don't think about it, don't look at it & # 39;

& # 39; So finally Katya realized for the first time that we had turned off the dance. It was as if I was 3-0 at home for a non-competition team and then came back in the last minute. The relief and discharge of emotions was intense. & # 39;

Mike was also questioned about Katya's personal life outside the show, but he insisted that her estranged husband Neil Jones strongly support her.

Earlier this week, Katya also insisted that her hysterical tears were relieved after their quick step routine.

The Russian dancer told the Loose Women panel that after her disastrous dress rehearsal with Mike, they were both excited to endure the dance that triggered her emotional response.

Katya also referred back to fans' claims that she was drunk when she fell during a performance last week, and admitted that & # 39; sad & # 39; was to see responses on social media calling for her to be fired.

On Saturday, Mike and Katya went onto the dance floor to perform a Quickstep to Come On Eileen from Dexys Midnight Runners.

After a bumpy start to the competition, the pair surprised the judges with their performance and scored 32 points out of 40.

Katya burst into hysterical tears and collapsed after the dance and, embracing Mike, repeatedly said she could kiss him.

Speaking of her reaction, the dancer explained that she and Mike were terrified of the show after a general rehearsal ended in a disaster.

She said: & # 39; The problem with Quickstep that you lose one step the rest of the routine is so hard to pick up. & # 39;

Mike added: & # 39; That one small step went wrong during the dress rehearsal and the whole thing fell apart. & # 39;

& # 39; I told him & # 39; & # 39; don't even repeat it, you've got this, we've done it a million times. & # 39; & # 39; I just told him that we imagine dancing in your little village house for your daughters, & # 39; Katya told the panel.

& # 39; I was so relieved, people are happy to see Saturday night shows, they don't see the week we're going through. & # 39;
