Strictly Come Dancing star Dan Walker has revealed the real reason he’s not taking part in the show’s 33-date tour in 2022.
Dan, 44, and partner Nadiya Bychkova were eliminated from the show last weekend.
And now Dan has revealed why he won’t be pulling on his dancing shoes again.
I can’t wait to take my family to watch the #Strictly tour this year but I sadly won’t be part of it.
I have too many work commitments and I want to be at home after spending so much longer on the actual show than I ever expected
I’m sure it’ll be amazing – as usual.
