Strictly Come Dancing returned to our screens this evening and Kym Marsh dedicated her performance to her late son Archie.

The actress and TV presenter explained to viewers in the VT before her dance that her baby son Archie was born premature and passed away at a very young age.

Marsh dedicated her performance to her son but also wanted to share her story to help others who are going through or have experienced a similar struggle.

She began to cry at the end of her performance when speaking with host Claudia Winkleman.

Kym and her professional partner Graziano performed the American Smooth to Chasing Cars by Cinematic Pop.

The pair achieved a score of 31 this week and are hopeful they will have done enough to secure themselves a spot in the Blackpool Tower ballroom next week.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC on Saturday, November 19 at 7.45pm.
