"Essentially, just trust your professional," Dan explained, adding: "You know when you see somebody who's brilliant at what they do, and you can say, okay, I'm safe in your arms, just tell me what to do and I’ll try and soak up as much as I can."

Matt was announced as the eighth contestant to be joining the 2022 series of Strictly Come Dancing. The musician was announced during an episode of This Morning when Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle shared the big reveal with viewers.
