Fans of the popular BBC programme Strictly Come Dancing were left "crying" after an "emotional" routine inspired by the Disney Pixar movie Up.

The routine was performed by English cyclist Jody Cundy and professional dancer Jowita.

The dance saw Jody don a pair of black glasses and channel his inner Carl Fredricksen.

The athlete revealed that he was struggling ahead of this weekend's show after his infected leg became swollen.

Jody had one of his legs amputated when he was just three years old after being born with a deformed foot.

His recent problems forced him to stop rehearsing for two days after weeks of lower scores on the BBC show.

This new dance comes amid Movie Week on the show, seeing the dance partners perform film-themed routines to impress judges Anton du Beke, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood.

Strictly Come Dancing fans left 'crying' after emotional routine based on the Disney movie Up

Viewers took to social media to express how the performance from Jody Cundy and professional dancer Jowita made them feel.

One Strictly Come Dancing viewer said: "Ahh man that dance too UP made me emotional #Strictly."

Another said it made them physically cry, adding: "I'm crying again!#Strictly," while another simply said: "Oh my god :( #strictly."

Unfortunately, the judges didn't feel the same way, rewarding the pair with just 20 points. The pair were previously given 16 last week.

Strictly Come Dancing continues every Saturday and Sunday on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
