Strictly Come Dancing’s Dan Walker issues plea after making it through to another week

Dan Walker has issued a plea to Strictly Come Dancing viewers after he made it through to another week.

The BBC Breakfast host and professional partner Nadiya Bychkova got their highest score of the series on Saturday night.

The dancing couple performed an American Smooth to King Of The Road by The Proclaimers which received mixed scoring from the judges.

Craig Revel Horwood told Dan and Nadiya the dance “lacked any feeling” and gave them a four while Anton Du Beke awarded them a nine for the routine.

Following the results show on Sunday night, Dan shared a selfie of himself and Nadiya all glammed up for Saturday’s performance on Instagram, writing: “Please don’t shout at me,” followed by a laughing crying face emoji.

He added: “I’m having an amazing time, my kids are delighted & it’s only a TV show!

“For those asking, I don’t know who is voting for us (probably not Craig) but we’re incredibly thankful to everyone who is.”

“See you next week. Can’t wait.”

It comes after Dan, 44, hit back last week at those questioning his place in the competition.

The TV star was flooded with support after showing a news report on Instagram which asked ‘how he was still on Strictly’.

And more fans were quick to let him know they were voting for him following his latest message.

“I voted for you!!! The fact that Anton said you’ve come the furthest on your ‘journey’ says it all. You are improving each week and your partnership is a joy to watch so yeah – keeeep daaaancing!!!!” one said.

Another commented: “People love you, you’re a lovely person and you’re a joy to watch – keep dancing!”

“Stuff the haters!!! You deserve it! We love you both in this house and get all our votes,” a third added.

This weekend Sara Davies has become the seventh celebrity eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing.

The entrepreneur, 37, and her professional partner Aljaz Skorjanec faced social media star Tilly Ramsay and her partner Nikita Kuzmin in the BBC One show’s latest dance-off following the public vote.

Following Sara’s elimination, Dan tweeted he was sad to see the couple go home.

“Sara has been brilliant & I loved their Argentine tango,” he wrote. “It’s been great to get to know her & our Friday nights and Saturday breakfasts will be sorely missed.

“She has time for everyone & is a real star who cares for all around her.”
