Strictly Come Dancing contestant Dan Walker has given an insight into the reaction from his fellow stars after Adam Peaty’s near-kiss with Katya Jones last weekend.

Dan has surprised many this year, with the six-foot six BBC Breakfast presenter having exceeded expectations with his dancing.

He was back last night to perform a Viennese Waltz to Billy Joel’s hit, She’s Always A Woman, which he sweetly dedicated to his wife Sarah and gave a really lovely tribute to her after the routine whilst she was sat in the audience.

But after the sexiness of last weekend’s Argentine Tango from Adam and Katya saw them up very close, and romance rumours swirling with Kai Widdrington and AJ Odudu, Dan has given his own take on what happens behind-the-scenes.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk and other press earlier this week, the former Football Focus star said of him and his wife: ‘We love Strictly and you know as a family we watch it.’

‘I’ve never had that conversation with my wife, and I don’t think I’ll need to!’ he said, addressing the so-called curse which comes up for discussion every year.

The dancing duo went on to speak out on the reaction to Adam and Katya’s fiery routine, with the TV host saying: ‘I think we had a bit of a laugh at the reaction to it really!

‘You have to sort of embody a character when you get into a dance whatever that is. Last week it was MC Hammer silliness this week. It’s very different for Viennese Waltz

‘None of us are what Nina [Wadia] was and Greg [Wise], none of us are professional actors, so you just try and totally get in the zone and I think you [Nadiya] loved watching it didn’t you?’

Nadiya weighed in: ‘It was a beautiful Argentine Tango; I loved the dance and Katya always puts out the best dances.

‘So, it was I think it was an amazing performance It was really, really beautiful, all of us really enjoyed watching it.

Dan also explained why he believed the routine was so important for Adam, due to their temporary spell at the bottom of the leader board with their Rumba the previous weekend.

He added: ‘I think it was really important for Adam as well because he was bottom of the leader board the week before and he really was keen to get the steps right and commit it

‘So, I think he was just he went full Olympic focus I thought they did a brilliant job!’

But who will be waving goodbye to the Strictly dancefloor in tonight’s results show?

Strictly Come Dancing: The Results airs tonight at 7.15pm on BBC One.
