Greg Rutherford gets tearful following Strictly performance

Greg Rutherford and his partner Natalie Lowe got tearful following their Strictly Come Dancing performance on Saturday night and not only because they were dancing to the emotional Evanescence track Wake Me Up Inside.

The pair were given a mixed bag of comments from the judges' with Craig Revel-Horwood deeming it "not a rumba".

Craig handed them a lowly four in contrast to 7 apiece from Darcey Bussell and Len Goodman and an eight from Bruno Tonioli.

Despite positive remarks from Darcey and Bruno, the pair got a little tearful in their post-dance chat with Claudia Winkelman.

Despite the mixed scores, Greg and Natalie still managed to top last week's score.
