Strictly’s Will Mellor is a proud dad as he takes son Jayden, 18, to star-studded premiere

Strictly Come Dancing's Will Mellor was certainly a proud dad as he posed with his son Jayden at the Black Adam premiere at Cineworld Leicester Square.

The Coronation Street and Hollyoaks actor, 46, sported a light blue shirt under a navy blue waistcoat and matching trousers.

Jayden rocked a cream jumper, navy blue fitted trousers and a beanie hat.

The 18 year old, who is a fashion model, wasn't camera shy as he posed confidently with one hand in his pocket.

Will shares Jayden and daughter Renee, 14, with his wife Michelle, who he married in 2007.

Other attendees at the star-studded premiere included Kate Garraway, Comedian Jack Whitehall and cast members Dwayne Johnson and Pierce Brosnan.

Will and his son Jayden appear to have a very close bond.

Wishing his son a Happy 18th back in July, the star wrote: "A massive happy 18th birthday to my amazing boy @jaydenwmellor!

"So proud of the young man he’s become!! Love you son! #happybirthday #birthday #18thbirthday."

Will is currently competing on this year's series of Strictly Come Dancing, however due to having the flu, he missed out on several days of training last week.

The father-of-two still danced on Saturday 15 October night with his professional partner Nancy Xu.

On Monday 19 October, Will took to Instagram to give fans an update on his health.

He said: "I’m so glad to be feeling better!! Happy Monday people!! Go and grab it! #positivevibes #happymonday #freshstart."

Despite Will receiving his lowest Strictly score of 23 out of 40 last weekend, the actor has been a fan favourite in this year's series.

His first performance at week one saw him score a total of 34 out of 40.

Speaking on Strictly's It Takes Two after his debut, Will said: "I was tingling until the next morning, my body was on fire, I was tingling, it was exhilarating, it was emotional, it was everything.

“I don’t think there’s any other show that will give you that type of feeling, especially doing something that’s completely out of your comfort zone.

“If you feel like you’ve done it, the achievement and the sense of achievement was unbelievable."

He added: "My daughter was crying, I looked down, my daughter was crying. My mum’s on the phone crying, it was massive for me and my family.”
