Dan Walker's dances on Strictly Come Dancing have inspired a fan to take up dancing again after they tragically lost his wife.

Whilst out on a walk, the BBC Breakfast host ran into one of his viewers called Cecil who revealed to him that he had stopped dancing after his wife passed away.

However, after watching Dan perform with his partner Nadiya Byckhova on BBC's Strictly week after week, he has now decided to take up dancing lessons and do what he loves once more.

The BBC presenter recalled the emotional story as he sat with his co-host Sally Nugent on Tuesday's show (November 9).

Dan had been discussing the morning's papers with Sally, who showed him a piece in The Sun with a headline which read: "How is Dan still in show?[Strictly]".

Dan replied: "Oh no, oh Sally!" before telling viewers about his meeting with the Strictly fan.

He started off by saying:" Do you know what? When I watch Strictly at home when I'm not in it. I always think the test is, do I want to see that couple dance next week?

"And I think I've always said 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 you've got to try and improve every week.
