He added: “To be serious for a minute, thank you for being wonderful. Thank you for teaching me so much.”

Dan, 44, previously paid tribute to his pro dancer on Strictly, telling host Tess Daly: “The past 11 weeks have been absolutely amazing, I’ve really loved every second of it.

“When I go back to the first day when I was asked to dance in front of some shiny balls.

“At the time, if the fire had to go out, I thought I would have become uncomfortable.

“But this wonderful woman held my hand, and brought me to this dance floor.

“I’m not a dancer, but she showed me I can dance, and for me, it’s been an absolutely incredible experience.”

He continued: “I also want to mention this wonderful woman next to me, there are some people who come into your life and turn on some lights, and that’s what she did to me.

“You’re a wonderful person, and if you’re near me, I’ll be your friend for life Nadia Bychkova, right?”

He replied: “Like he said, sometimes the right person at the right time comes into your life and that’s what happened.

“You always encourage everyone, you always have time for everyone, it inspires me to be a better person myself. Thank you.”
