Appearing on the chat show on Thursday evening, BBC Breakfast’s Dan Walker told temporary The One Show host Rylan Clark-Neal about a recent training mishap which left him injured. He took “full responsibility” for the Strictly Come Dancing blunder as he told BBC viewers what they can expect from his rumba this weekend.

Playing a clip showing some of Dan’s Strictly Come Dancing performances on The One Show, co-host Ronan Keating asked: “Dan, how was it watching that back?”

“It was a lot of memories in there,” the broadcaster commented.

“That quickstep – was that week one?” Nadiya nodded, replying: “Week one, yes.”

Dan admitted: “It seems like a long time ago. I feel like I’ve learnt so much.”

Rylan, who also presents Strictly Come Dancing spin-off show It Takes Two, remarked: “This seems very, very strange because obviously I’ve not had you on It Takes Two this week.

“And normally I’d be asking you what you’re doing but I’m just going to do it here because I know you’re doing the rumba to Desperado by Eagles.

“It’s a tough dance. Has Nadiya kicked you in the face again this week or was that just last week?”

While training for the Charleston they danced last Saturday, Dan ended up getting hurt.

“To be clear, it was a knee in the chin,” the 44-year-old clarified.

“And I take full responsibility,” he shrugged.

He turned to Nadiya and commented: “Apparently my leg shouldn’t have been there.”

“Exactly,” the ballroom and Latin champion laughed.

“But I did say sorry,” she added. Dan continued: “She did say sorry.

“No injuries this week, but the rumba – it is difficult but you will know Rylan from It Takes Two, I love every dance.

“And I love learning from Nadiya.” Addressing his partner, he went on: “And this is your number one dance that you love,”

“It is,” the dancer confirmed. “It’s my favourite dance.

“I absolutely love the rumba, and I was so excited that we got through so I actually get to teach you my favourite dance.

“And it’s a beautiful song, which you really like.”

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 6.55pm on BBC One, while The One Show airs weekdays at 7pm on BBC One.
