Addressing his loyal viewers at the end of the show, Dan gave a heartfelt message. "Thank you for tuning in," he said. "Thank you for all the comments and the kind messages and the many lovely words over the years. 

"Thank you for the support in loads of different things, including the dancing, and I think it's safe to say that I, and all of us, never ever take any of that for granted, the fact that people watch this programme and they enjoy it and they feel that it's a part of their lives."
