But one person who's been by his side and been a pillar of support throughout is Harman's wife Lucy Liemann.
Keen to hear what she made of his Strictly stint now he's departed, It Takes Too host Fleur East quizzed Harman on Monday: "You said at the launch show your wife Lucy laughed when you said you were gonna come onto Strictly, what does she think of your journey now?"

"She's still laughing," Jones chipped in which prompted Harman to giggle and clutch his ribs in pain as the impact of his injury took its toll.
"Oh! It feels like I've got a little golf ball stuck under my rib so every time I laugh," Harman explained before he turned his attention to his other half.
He answered: "She's been incredible and very supportive and kept me going in a lot of ways - with a packed lunch or a cuddle or whatever! She's come to support us, every Wednesday she and my daughter would show up.

"I think she's proud of me and I think maybe there's a little element of, 'Oh, you're better than I thought you were gonna be'.
"But she has been a wonder really and continues to be today, she's looking after me today. I feel very lucky, very blessed," Harman emphatically replied.
While his wife has been by his side throughout and often appeared in the live studio audience during the series, neither Harman nor Jones addressed Liemann in their tearful exit interview on Saturday.
In fact, Jones piqued the interest of several Strictly viewers when she mentioned Harman's children and parents within her interview but left out his wife.
"It's quite hard to talk right now, I'm not going to lie. But I have absolutely loved every moment of us creating magic on a dance floor," Jones told Winkleman on Saturday.
