BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker seems to be missing the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom so much so that he insisted he’s heading back for the final in a ‘rerun’ of the BBC show.
Speaking about the upcoming final on Saturday, he told co-host Sally Nugent all about the line-up for the show.
Dan began the segment by announcing: “Yesterday!” as Sally, in good humour, enquired: “What were you doing yesterday, Dan?”
Her co-host announced proudly: “I was back on the Strictly ballroom floor!”
Sally couldn’t quite believe what she was hearing, as she asked: “They let you back in? Has there been a rerun?”
“Yes, I’m back in. I’m in the final!” Dan immediately responded, as Sally beamed beside him on the red sofa.
But it was soon clear he was only kidding, as he followed it up with: “I’m not. We’re doing our group dance for the final, so we had to rehearse it yesterday.”
“So you’re back there!” Sally replied, as Dan explained: “So the three finalists – AJ, Rose and John – are all in the final this Saturday.”
Theorising, Sally wondered: “I imagine they’re in a bubble at the moment!” as Dan agreed: “A secret bubble somewhere where you can’t get anywhere near them.”
“Exactly, don’t breathe on them!” Sally joked.
Dan went on: “The rest of us are all in a dancey bubble now. It was nice to see everybody again, all back in the ballroom.”
Clarifying for the viewers, Sally asked: “So you’re actually dancing again on Saturday night?”
And Dan was eager to give a sneak peek, as he told her: “There’s one big number at the end where we’re all in it, and everyone has a bit from their favourite dance in there. So just wait and see, it’s good fun!”
Sally promised him: “I cannot wait for that. Saturday night, everybody – make sure you’re watching!”
