It comes after Dan revealed his daughter Suzie's sweet reaction to his first Strictly dance as his family watched from the audience.

"Suzie had like tears pouring out of her eyes. Proper tears of joy. And she gave me this lovely little wave to say, 'well done dad',” he shared.

"That was one of the highlights of my entire life. She absolutely loved it and she's the one - and her brother and sister - that's why I decided to do the programme because they were desperate to watch it.

"So that, for me, was perfect. The dance was great, I really enjoyed it, but that's what it's all about."
