The Strictly tour, which opens on Thursday 28 April in Salford, will see Nadiya perform alongside dancing favourites such as Dianne Buswell, Graziano Di Prima, Karen Hauer and Kai Widdrington. 

The news of Dan's exciting family outing comes just weeks after the former Football Focus host announced that he would be leaving the BBC and moving to Channel 5 to present 5 News alongside other projects for the broadcaster.

Sharing the news via Channel 5's official Twitter account earlier this month, the presenter said: "In the next few weeks, I'm going to be leaving BBC Breakfast and moving to 5 News and to Channel 5. I'm really excited but this has also been a massive decision for me because I love BBC Breakfast, I love working alongside Sally and I love the team there. 

"But Channel 5 came with big ambitions, with big plans. And I don't think opportunities like this come around very often. And I can't wait," he added.
