Strictly’s Amy Dowden in stitches as Tom Fletcher falls asleep in rehearsals

We've all heard about how tough the Strictly training schedule can be, and it looks like it's finally defeated Tom Fletcher.

That's because the McFly singer had to take a nap in rehearsals this week as he rehearses with Amy Dowden for their Viennese Waltz ahead of the live show on Saturday (November 13).

The Viennese Waltz is a notoriously tricky dance, and having to practise new routines for the judges every seems to have caught up with poor Tom, so he decided to have a kip.

Unfortunately for him, Amy wasn't going to let him get away with it that easily, and she managed to film his slumber for the whole of Instagram to see.

Taking to Instagram, Tom shared the hilarious video clip which showed him snoring away audibly as he laid on the floor on his back.

Halfway through the video, Tom woke up with a start and finally realised he was being filmed, as Amy burst out laughing.

Tongue in cheek, Tom penned the caption: "When Amy talks you to sleep…"

Amy then shared his story with a string of laughing face emojis as she sarcastically replied: "Good chat".

Last week, Tom and Amy scored a whopping 38 points from the judges for their traditional paso doble – their highest score of the series to date.

However, Tom's wife Giovanna risked getting Tom into trouble when she accidentally leaked his next dance on Zoe Ball's BBC Radio 2 show.

Tom gave the I'm A Celebrity 2020 winner a telling off on in a clip posted to his Instagram story.

Speaking about her husband's Strictly journey on Zoe Ball's radio show, Giovanna admitted that it could be a "stressful" experience at times.
