He continued: “I’ve got to rest for a few days – so I’ll be a bit behind – but ready to go again next week.”

Dan paid tribute to his yet-to-be-announced Strictly dance partner, revealing he “waited in the car park for hours to make sure I was OK”.

“Whatever happens on television … she has a girlfriend for life,” he added.
