'So that's what the programme is all about, isn't it?' pointed out Dan, before insisting: 'You've got to enjoy it. You've got to remember it's a privilege to be on the programme. You've got to work hard, and try to improve every week.

The BBC presenter's ballroom dance divided the judges, particularly rubbing Craig Revel Horward up the wrong way.

While the audience loved the performance, Craig said it "lacked any feeling", adding: "There was a desperate lack of style throughout the thing… It wasn't for me I'm afraid."

Despite Craig's brutal critique, the other judges and fans alike were impressed by the dance. Co-host Tess Daly called Dan "smoothness" itself and Motsi Mabuse argued it was his "best dance" since the show started.

Anton Du Beke agreed: "I wanted Dan the man. I got Dan the dancer!"

The mixed opinions led to equally mixed scores, with Craig giving the dance partners a 4, while Anton handed out his first 9 of the season.

"A 9 and a 4, I'm not sure that's ever happened before," co-host Claudia Winkelman went on to admit.

Strictly 'fix' row erupts as Dan Walker avoids dance-off and Sara exits 'Ridiculous now'

  Strictly 'fix' row erupts as Dan Walker avoids dance-off and Sara exits 'Ridiculous now' STRICTLY COME DANCING fans were left distraught on Sunday evening as Sara Davies and Aljaz Skorjanec said their goodbyes. So much so, some BBC viewers have claimed the show is "fixed" to favour Dan Walker.Each week, the dance-off is determined by a combination of the public vote as well as each stars' position on the leaderboard.

On yesterday's episode of The One Show, Dan and Nadiya appeared alongside Call the Midwife legend Jenny Agutter, and Dan divulged the secret connection to their dance.

After a video of Jenny dancing with Ian Waite for a Children in Need special of Strictly back in 2015 was shown, Dan said: "That's actually the same tail suit that I wore for American Smooth, because the only person they had tall enough was Ian Waite so I had to borrow his old tail suit."

The sports journalist is a towering six feet and six inches tall, leading Nadiya to call him "daddy long-legs". But thankfully, Strictly professional Ian Waite almost measures up, at six feet and two inches.

This week (November 27), Dan and Nadiya will dance the Rumba to 'Desperado' by The Eagles. Maybe this time they can win over Craig…

Strictly Come Dancing 2021 airs on Saturday nights on BBC One, with results shows every Sunday. Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
