Don't mess with Sara!

Dan Walker has been accused of ‘flaking’ on his fellow Strictly Come Dancing co-stars.

The 44-year-old presenter was recently invited to join his Strictly pals for a wild swim in Sheffield.

The group -including Sara Davies – have thrown themselves into the chilly activity during various stops on the show’s live tour.

Dan Walker called out by Strictly co-star Sara Davies

During a Q+A session with fans on Instagram yesterday (February 10), Dan admitted that he had to turn down the offer.

It came after a fan asked: “Would you ever go wild-swimming like the Strictly tour lot?”

In a video, Dan responded: “I was going to, actually, when we were in Sheffield.

“I was invited down by the Reverend Kate Botley and Sara – but I just couldn’t get back from work in time. It looked like fun, and I’d love to have a go.”

He added: “Appropriate footwear always essential when wild swimming, I think!”

The BBC Breakfast host also tagged Sara in the post.

However, the Dragons’ Den star was quick to call out Dan for lying.

Sara reposted the clip to her own profile and wrote: “Yeah we invited him and he totally flaked on us.

“This excuse about not getting back from work on time is total BS – he chickened out!”

He chickened out!

And Dan was quick to throw in the towel.

The star quickly responded to Sara’s message with a ‘GUILTY’ sticker.

Meanwhile, it comes after Dan appeared on The One Show on Thursday night.
