The news comes after Tilly was faced with the prospect of going home on Sunday night's Strictly Come Dancing results show.

Tilly who has been riding high in the competition alongside her dance partner Nikita Kuzmin hit a bump in the road when she received the fewest public votes over the weekend.

However, when faced with Adam Peaty and Katya Jones in the dreaded dance off, the young star received three out of four votes from the judges.

Taking to Instagram after the results show, shared a video of herself and Nikita dancing and penned: "What an emotional rollercoaster.. WOW, even though I always knew this might happen, it’s definitely very hard to be in a dance-off!!

"I’m so grateful to still be here another week and to have the opportunity to learn another dance. I'm definitely not ready to go yet!!"

She also thanked the judges for saving her and wished Adam and Katya well.
