BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker made his dance debut on Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday night. He performed his first competitive dance in the series alongside his professional partner Nadia Bychkova. However, he left fans worried for a while when he collapsed after finishing the dance.
Dan wowed Strictly viewers on Saturday night when he took a quick step on Everyone Needs Someone To Love.
The dance took inspiration from her daytime job as a presenter on BBC Breakfast and even featured the iconic red sofa from the morning show.
The energetic dancing wowed the judges and home viewers alike, but it looks like it was a bit too much for the BBC presenter.
After he finished the performance, he was supposed to head over to Strictly host Tess Daly to discuss the dancing, but instead he collapsed into a heap.

Motsi Mabuse commented: “I was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t perfect but what I really liked, from the bottom of my heart, was that you were risking something.”
“You came out, you did your best. You are going to be a shining star,” she added.
Meanwhile, Chief Justice Shirley Ballas noted that Dan’s height would be an advantage for him in the competition.
“You have size and I’ve never seen such a long neck in my life, which is a huge asset when you’re a dancer,” she told Dan.
