However, it emerged later that Fleur started her dance again after a horrific fall which saw her come ‘crashing down’ on her partner, with the moment not aired or mentioned on the results show.
A Strictly Come Dancing spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘After an incident with a prop at the beginning of Fleur and Vito’s dance off performance, the decision was made to halt proceedings to check they were not injured, as a matter of urgency.
‘As they had not begun to dance before the incident occurred, it was decided they could start the performance again, once it was confirmed they were fit to do so.’
Now Fleur and Vito have opened up on the controversy, explaining she had a ‘bad fall’ on a chair within the first few seconds of the number.
Speaking on Thursday’s Loose Women, Vito said: ‘Basically what happened, in the first few seconds of our number, I just fell down on the chair.Literally was a bad fall.
‘Everyone was gasping, but I showed them I was okay and able to restart so thank you – I’m fine, I’m here today so all good. Thank you very much.’
“It was health and safety, wasn’t it? That’s why you did it again” interjected Denise Welch.
Vito said: ‘We were continuing, because we always say to each other, “If anything happens, let’s just keep going, keep continuing” and literally I was trying to stand up and continue, and when I turned around she was spinning the wheel…’
Fleur said: ‘I was ready, I was like the show must go on. And then production decided to stop the music.We were like, “Oh, okay”.’
