However, despite having finished in fifth place, Dan was noticeably absent from the list of stars, and has now clarified why he won’t be involved.
Posting on his Twitter account on Wednesday night, he said: “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.”
Dan added that he was sure the Strictly tour “will be amazing – as usual”.
