Talking to Fubar Radio’s Access All Areas, the reality star admitted that there was much more in history.

He explained, “To tell you a little secret, the reason I got it [the injury] it’s because I bought these little things called elevators on Amazon that give you a little more height in old shoes.

“Don’t buy this! Terrible things. “

The dance performance could have had a very different outcome if Jamie’s injury had not prevented him from participating.

And he even compared his dance to Billy Elliot, saying, “I would have won that king! One hundred percent, I had that!

“The very first show when I honestly thought I was Billy Elliot, I was like, ‘It’s my dream to be here right now. I’m going to win and I’m going to be the sweetheart from the UK. It’s written in the stars! »»

His injury landed him on crutches

Jamie’s injury saw him withdraw from Strictly 2019 programming just 48 hours before his arrival on stage.

BBC bosses said Jamie had no choice after doctors said he would not be able to meet the minimum weekly requirement of 12 hours of training.

The injury occurred after Jamie awkwardly landed during the routine involving all of the celebrities and the entire professional dance troupe.

Jamie landed awkwardly on his right foot and damaged a tendon, which appears to have caused significant pain – which means he could no longer continue the strenuous repetitions.

Kelvin Fletcher was dropped to replace the reality star – and ended up winning the whole series with Oti Mabuse.
