Posting a clip of himself on the show with Nadiya on Monday morning, he captioned the snap: "I’m sad it’s over but I’m so thankful it happened. We had an amazing run & the right 4 people are in the SF - Rose, John AJ & Rhys are all brilliant. I’m so glad everyone has seen the real @nadiyabychkova this series. She taught me how to dance… I taught her cricket."

Dan previously took to Instagram after the news was confirmed with a message to his critics. He wrote: "To the angry mob who shouted, insulted and moaned each week… please think about your words. I can thankfully cope with it but others can’t and some of it is cruel, unkind and unnecessary. I love watching Strictly for the brilliant dancers but also for the improvers, the no-hopers and the ones who surprise themselves and everyone else."

Dan opened up about leaving the show

He added: "Well… what a ride! Strictly has been a truly wonderful experience for me. I have met some amazing people and enjoyed every second. It has been magnificent to be a small part of a show that means so much to so many people. I came into it a complete beginner with the lowest of expectations and ended up coming 5th!"
