WILL Mellor became emotional as he apologised to his children during Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday night.
The former Hollyoaks actor, 46, sent a message to his kids while chatting to host Claudia Winkleman after performing.
Will appeared upset during the BBC show after making a mistake during his routine with professional partner Nancy Xu.
He misplaced his footing during the Salsa, which they danced to the sounds of Never Too Much by Luther Vandross.
Admitting he nearly tripped, Will told Claudia: “My mind just completely went blank. It’s the first time I’ve opened the show – whether it was nerves. It’s life, that’s what can happen. It’s live.”
Claudia then revealed that Will wanted to send a message to his kids, Renee, 13, and Jayden, 18,who he shares with wife Michelle McSween.

Will appeared choked as he said: “They’re at home watching. Sorry it wasn’t great for you kids. I tried my best.”
Claudia was quick to step in and support the emotional star, saying: “We will not have that" as the audience cheered.
Nancy also apologised to Will for "pushing him too hard" in last night's routine.
The pair saw their scores take a dive after a promising first week.
