“I’m going to ask you, you’ve lost weight haven’t you?”

However, Richard corrected him and said: “Over a stone. Good grief!”
Hamza continued: “Nine hours a day we’re trying to train and it’s hard on the body. My knees and legs are hurting.”
Hamza and Jowita wowed with their performance last weekend as they bagged an impressive 39 points out of 40 from the judges.
They danced the salsa to Ecuador by Sash! and even threw in some tricky lifts.
During his interview on GMB, Hamza admitted he did feel fear throughout the dance.
He said: “I came close to dropping her. There were a few times where the last lift, I wobbled. Luckily, I caught her.
“There was certain fear through the whole dance.”
On the judges’ scoring, Hamza admitted: “I was just flabbergasted. I just wanted to finish the routine and do it correctly. We don’t really think of the scores much. But we just wanted to finish it and do it correctly.”
Following his performance last weekend, Hamza shared a touching message to Instagram.
