What did Dan Walker say about his reprieve?

Strictly Come Dancing stars Tilly and Nikita sadly lost the dance-off with Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu.

However, the fact that Dan Walker was nowhere near it was a bone of contention for some viewers.

And the BBC Breakfast presenter hit back at claims it was a “fix”.

He took to Instagram and said: “Thank you to everyone who is sending lovely messages and enjoying us having fun on #Strictly.”

“And to the few who say ‘just leave’,  ‘Aren’t you ashamed?’, ‘You’re a disgrace’, ‘It’s a fix’ (which I don’t get), or ‘Who is voting for them?’… IT’S A TV SHOW!”
