As Zoe inquired about his injured leg – which was wrapped in a leg brace – the table tennis star explained: “It is not about dancing, if I could I would really give it all I really would but it is just not ready. & # 39;

Janette also struggled to keep her upset that she and Will would not continue in the competition, and said to Zoe: & I am clearly super stripped that I could see sick getting better and better, specifically this week with the jive.

& # 39; He has learned it so quickly that I thought oh my god, we are building momentum, the only thing I have in my heart right now are so many incredible amazing moments I have shared with Will about life talk, i feel like a friend for life with him. We are now united forever. & # 39;

After watching a high-profile role from his time that danced with Janette, Will struggled to control his emotions and shed tears.

He said to Zoe: & # 39; It's really complicated that I didn't want it to end like this, even if we went out next week or whatever I didn't want it to end like this.

& # 39; I also had so many positive things I want to focus on, I never thought I could do half the things I owe Janette so much, I was really scared to embarrass myself, but she really believed me. & # 39;

He and Janette agreed during the series and agreed that their contemporary performance is one they would never forget.

& # 39; The last one we did was so special, it was just amazing, I understood the dance and every step meant so much & # 39 ;, he said.

Janette added: & # 39; It's not how we wanted to end it, but we ended it at such a peak and that dance is the reason why I dance.

& # 39; We dance to touch people, inspire people to motivate others and Will is the pinnacle of that and his journey in the show shows that anything is possible and that is the message I think we should leave in this show. & # 39;

Amazingly: the Paralympic star had a lot of praise for his professional partner Janette, flowing: & # 39; I was really scared to embarrass myself, but she really believed me & # 39;

Will also insisted that his handicap had nothing to do with the injury and said to Zoe: “It's not because I have a handicap, it can happen to anyone, it's just bad luck.

& (39) (Janette) deserves so much praise for what she has done for me, it all boils down to Janette that she has performed miracles, she is not only dancing with someone who has never danced and believes in me while many people do not did. & # 39;

The pro then ended things by saying to her partner: & As I said, you have so much enthusiasm and determination in life, the things that you survived in our youth are in themselves proof of the kind of person that you are.

& # 39; Thank you for putting your heart and soul into every step and being one of the best partners I could have asked for in the show. & # 39;

Speaking in the VT on the show, he further explained: & I jumped from a table and while I landed, I landed with my legs straight. I thought I broke my leg because I never felt anything like that.

& # 39; Hearing the words that I absolutely cannot dance was just very bad for me. But I have to recover now and come back even stronger next week. & # 39;

A representative of the BBC show said in an official statement: “Unfortunately, Will Bayley was injured during training and doctors have said he cannot dance in the show this weekend. According to the rules of Strictly Come Dancing, Will said goodbye next week. & # 39;

The 2014 world champion was born with arthrogryposis, which affects all four of his limbs and causes multiple bent joints from birth. The condition usually leads to stiff joints and muscle weakness.

Will learned to play table tennis when his grandmother bought him a table after his cancer diagnosis.

He became a member of the local club at the age of 12 and represented the strong men's team of Kent before winning the gold medal at the 2016 Paralympic Games.
