Alison, who plays Pam on the popular sitcom, gifted the EastEnders actor with a little video message wishing him luck for his performance.
He was partnered with Nadiya Bychkova, joining the likes of Coronation Street’s Alexandra Mardell, Radio 1 DJ Rickie Haywood-Williams and podcaster Rosie Ramsey.
Completing the line-up were Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts and CBeebies’ George Webster.
Larry and Nadiya wowed the judges and audience with their American Smooth, scoring a total of 31 points.

However, before the judges’ scores were in, Larry received a surprise message.
‘Hi Larry! Hi! Congratulations on your American Smooth! Wow! Brilliant!
‘I am sending you lots and lots of love,’ Alison said in an adorable clip.
Viewers were of course delighted with the surprise message.
‘OH MY CHRIST PAM’ one person wrote while another penned: ‘I mean we kinda got a Pam and Michael reunion.’
After being announced to be taking part in the Christmas special, Larry had said: ‘I can’t wait to get on the dance floor and learn a brand new skill ready for all those festive parties!’
He added: ‘I am excited yet incredibly nervous but I know Nadiya will look after me, and I look forward to adding a bit of extra sparkle to Christmas day.’
Strictly Come Dancing is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
