Strictly Come Dancing 2021 star Dan Walker has exceeded expectations with professional partner Nadiya Bychkova so far this year – but not everyone is impressed with his efforts, it seems.

The presenter has taken to social media to respond to his critics, and he has a message for the people who wanted him off the BBC show.

The 44-year-old posted a picture on Instagram showing a news report which asked how he was still on Strictly.

Responding in a lengthy caption, he wrote: ‘I’m not sure but we are incredibly thankful for all the support and it’s a true privilege to be a small part of the biggest show on the telly.

‘I know articles like this are sourced from a few comments on social media but each week I get thousands of messages from people who love the show and are really enjoying watching @nadiyabychkova teaching me to dance.’

He added: ‘When I’ve watched Strictly in the past I have always liked seeing great dancers but also those who learn to love it and are working hard to improve every week. It’s a TV show and not the world championships.’

He continued: ‘I never thought I would be able to do some of the things Nadiya has taught me. She has given me a confidence that I thought was way beyond me. I just want to learn as many dances as possible.

‘Anyway… on with the American Smooth. Whoever you vote for this weekend… I hope you enjoy the show. I will continue to do it with a massive smile on my face.’

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

The host is partnered with Nadiya this year and the pair performed the latter’s first-ever couple’s choice routine on the competition to Classic by MKTO on Saturday night.

But whilst Dan is continuing to make progress on the programme, he’s backing his competitor Rose Ayling-Ellis to win after revealing he’d cast a vote for her earlier this series.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday night at 6.40pm on BBC One.
