Dan Walker has spoken out on Friday’s highly-anticipated Strictly Come Dancing launch show as he sent the new paritcipants some words of encouragement. The Channel 5 presenter and his pro dance partner, Nadiya Bychkova, made it all the way through to the quarter-finals of the hit dance competition last year.

Taking to Twitter last night, Dan revealed he would like Nadiya to win this year alongside her new celebrity partner Matt Goss.

In his tweet, shared in view of his 775,200 followers, Dan shared his hopes that the new contestants will “enjoy the experience”.

He typed: “Looking forward to meeting the @bbcstrictly class of 2022 tonight.

“I hope they are all able to enjoy the experience and make some brilliant memories and friends.”

Dan added: “And… come on @NadiyaBychkova… this is the year to go and conquer the glitter ball.”

The broadcaster later admitted he was not able to watch the launch show as he had been watching the football.

He asked his followers to fill him in on the latest Strictly developments by sending him “three headlines”.

Dan wrote: “Missed the #Strictly launch show because of the footy and a long train journey home.

“What did I miss? 3 headlines please.”

Dan received a barrage of reply from Strictly viewers, who shared their mixed reviews of the new series’ first instalment.

JoWoodward2013 said: “Here’s a wild and crazy thought, don’t watch.

“I’m sure you can find many,many things to spend your time on.

“Oh, but don’t try to kill the fun for those of us who do watch and do enjoy.”

SymphonyVerve tweeted: “They do weeks of training all together before they get paired.. so matches can be made based on chemistry.

“They’d have known exactly who the new dancers were at this point.”

Gail_maynes typed: “Claudia is still hilarious. Hamza is a joy. Fleur looks like an early contender.”

Phil_spivey penned: “Feels like a big warm hug having the show back.”

All of the 15 couples competing this year will be taking to the dance floor tonight for the first time, but there will be no live public vote this week with the judges simply awarding scores to the couples.

This year’s judging panel consists of Anton Du Beke, Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood, and head judge Shirley Ballas.

Strictly Come Dancing’s first live show starts today at 6.45pm on BBC One.
