James sighting comes after he appeared to wipe away tears after his debut performance was slammed by the judges and awarded an 11 out of 40 on Saturday.

The Olympic rower took the dance floor with pro Luba to perform a Tango to Gold by Spandau Ballet, but was branded 'lethargic' by Craig Revel-Horwood.

Many viewers took to social media to slam the judge's scoring, with several claiming that Lioness Alex Scott should have earned more points.

Following his first dance, James appeared downcast as he left the dance floor with Luba, and host Claudia Winkleman asked if he was alright.
