Tom, 36, hasn’t been given the easiest path to the Glitterball Trophy on Strictly so far.
He and partner Amy Dowden, 31 were forced to isolate for 10 days earlier this month when they tested positive for Covid-19.
But the pair luckily were able to return to the show the following week and quickly bounced back, performing a Jive inspired by Tom’s band McFly.
Ahead of the duo’s upcoming Salsa to Watermelon Sugar by Harry Styles, the musician got himself well into Latin mode as he prepared for the latest live show.
Posting an update on his Instagram, he posed topless to show off his bronzed glow.
‘Ok, I know it’s not very “me” posting a shirtless pic (says the man who’s been naked on the cover Attitude mag).
‘But in the name of finding my inner sexiness for the salsa tomorrow (which has a pool party theme) I’m back to the good old spray-tan this week and very happy about it,’ said the McFly singer.
His Strictly pal and co-star Adam Peaty was a fan, writing below: ‘Go on son.’
Previous winner Ore Oduba couldn’t resist a cheeky comment, adding: ‘Those BBC budget cuts.’
His bandmate Harry Judd joked: ‘Who are you and what have you done with Hermione Granger?’
Tom already gave fans a look into how his rehearsals have been going this week with Amy, including a bit of a mishap during training as they practiced for their salsa.
He showed off a series of photos in various states of them falling to the ground and Tom wrote: ‘Today was our last training day for the salsa and by far the toughest, most unsettling final training day I’ve had.
‘Not only is the salsa something that just feels so far away from who I am (you know, cool, trendy…sexy), the tricks and lifts add a whole new element that I’ve not had to deal with in previous dances – danger!
‘Obviously @amy_dowden and I are always careful and safety comes first, which is why when it goes wrong we stop and lower slowly…the downside to this is the whole dance just collapses.
‘If we get through this routine Saturday night without ending up like one of these photos it will be a Strictly miracle!’
Will they have what it takes to get through another weekend and avoid the dreading dance-off?
Strictly Come Dancing continues tomorrow at 7.05pm on BBC One.
