The presenter has been working hard to learn his steps with dancing partner Nadiya Bychkova – so hard, in fact, that he’s already shed a third of a stone.
Dan was appearing on BBC Breakfast earlier today he told co-host Sally Nugent and spoke about his trim down.
Sally commented that he was ‘a little bit more tanned, and a little bit thinner’ as a result of rehearsals for the show.
‘I haven’t had any tan – maybe it’s the head injury from last week,’ he replied.
The 44-year-old went on to say: ‘I have actually lost, with this dancing business, I’ve lost a third of a stone already.’
He added: ‘My trousers are a little bit looser in the waist-based area.’
Practising has required so much from Dan that he’s even had to increase his diet.
‘I’ve been eating more food than I’ve probably ever eaten before. Yesterday I must have had four flapjacks! I’m like Flapjack Fred!’ he said.
It comes after Dan previously shared update with his social media followers, showing off the bruise he recently sustained in a ‘stupid’ accident.
The BBC presenter recorded a video with dancing partner Nadiya after previously expressing how grateful he was that she stayed with him at A&E when he went to hospital.
Before Strictly kicked off, Dan revealed on social media that he suffered a painful head injury after accidentally walking straight into a glass door – leaving him with a rather nasty bruise on his forehead.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday night at 7pm on BBC One.
