A third fan joked: "The BBC will save a fortune in make up artists and hair stylists!"

Sharing a snap from the red sofa, Dan told his social media followers: "I have dropped yoghurt on my tie. Louise thinks she might have her dress on back-to-front. 30 seconds before we went on air she said... 'Dan, you can't go on TV with your hair like that!' And... I've already sung a sea-shanty!"

His fans were quick to sympathise, with one encouragingly writing: "You both look fine to me, don't worry." Another remarked: "You two!! Hope she fixed it!! #dreamteam."

The TV presenter opted for a different fashion look recently

Meanwhile, his fashion choices on the BBC show have also come under scrutiny, after he swapped out his usual plain shirts for a floral patterned one. 

Modelling a blue and white style, the TV presenter wrote: "Fancied something a bit funky this morning. What do you think? I hope your Wednesday is going well."

Dan's fans were quick to share their thoughts. One simply posted a grumpy face emoji while another teased: "My Nana had some curtains like that," adding a laughing emoji.

Others were more complimentary, however, with one commenting: "I put the tv on and have to admit I did a double-take... fancy Dan."
