Each couple usually appears together on It Takes Two after leaving Strictly, but unusually Danny chose not to take part. Host Zoe Ball told viewers: “Sadly, I’m afraid that Danny has decided not to join us tonight.”
Sitting alone on the sofa, Amy fought back tears as she answered Zoe’s questions.
“I was super emotional, I told myself not to cry tonight,” she said. “We did some amazing performances, the first 10 of the series and my first 10, something I will never forget!”
She added: “I’m so proud of Danny. He is such a talented performer. Danny, you belong there and I hope to see you on the stage performing very soon.”
Earlier in the day, Danny tweeted a message to his pro partner, saying: “I should have expressed my gratitude more often. You truly inspired me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the knowledge I have taken away with me.”

The two had previously admitted to a minor argument, although they played down reports in the press about a major falling-out.
“Things did get a little intense the other day in rehearsals,” Amy told Zoe on Friday’s It Takes Two. “Do you know what? We took a half-hour break and then got straight to it. I never felt bullied or threatened by Danny.”
