Tom Hiddleston is Loki a big Strictly Come Dancing fan, which is why he visited the BBC show at the weekend.
Speaking to BBC Radio 2, Tom gave his verdict on the competition as he said: “I’ve still got it on iPlayer to watch. It’s been quite difficult to determine who is gonna go all the way this year.
“I think maybe, look what do I know, I don’t know anything about ballroom. I think Ellie is maybe the most improved.
“Obviously Layton and Nigel came out of the blocks really fast and like, these guys can dance but maybe the judges have been tougher on them.”
