Dan Walker, 44, shared a relatable dilemma on Instagram today, as he admitted needing to have an “emergency hair cut” before appearing on Strictly Come Dancing this evening. The BBC Breakfast host shared photos of him being primped and preened alongside his dance partner Nadiya Bychkova as they prepare to perform their Viennese Waltz tonight.

Dan shared a selfie of his hair about to be clipped and typed: “Emergency trim from the Queen of the clippers @awinterburn1 and a little zhoosh from make-up magician @summerdyason #strictlycomedancing.”

In another image, he posted a photo of Nadiya looking radiant in a sequin bodysuit paired with a pink tulle skirt.

The professional dancer wore her hair in an elegant up-do decorated with flowers that matched her floral sash.

Dan continued: “Costume conqueror @gemma.l.davison is stitching Nadiya into her dress.

“They are three of the amazing humans who make this show so special. They are brilliant at their jobs, kind and great fun even though they have 1001 things to do at 100mph on a strictly Saturday.

“Big love from me and @nadiyabychkova,” he added.

In response, fans shared their admiration for Nadiya’s glamorous look.

Bentley_Jill said: “Nadiya looks so lovely and you Dan.”

Cat_McCartney commented: “Wow! That is some dress.”

Tracey. Jacklin remarked: “Omg Nadiya looks stunning @nadiyabychkova ….you don’t look too bad either Dan.”

Sam. Borst typed: “That dress is WOW! Looking very dapper too @mrdanwalker.”

During an appearance with Nadiya on ITV’s Lorraine this week, the 44-year-old said he will be performing to his wife, Sarah’s favourite song on Strictly tonight.

“We’re doing a Viennese Waltz, and we’re doing it to one of the greatest tunes of all time, which is Billy Joel She’s Always A Woman,” he explained.

“And it’s one of my wife’s favourite songs, and Nadiya has choreographed with my wife Sarah in mind,” Dan added.

Elsewhere in the interview, Lorraine grilled the couple on their Strictly journey so far, and Nadiya was full of praise for her celebrity partner.

“He doesn’t really sleep much but he works really hard. He never complains and I just love the work ethic he has. He gives 100 per cent, he tries whatever I tell him to do,” she said of the breakfast show host.

“And it is tough to learn something you never did before, it’s not easy at all but yeah, he’s given his all,” the 32-year-old blonde beauty added.

Dan said Nadiya has become part of the family, and even pops round for dinner at the family home in Sheffield.

“You know what, sometimes people just walk into your life at the right time, don’t they? I think that’s how we both feel about this sort of dancing relationship because Nadiya’s become a big part of our family,” he sweetly stated.

“She comes round for dinner, we go out together as a family, but also we’re sort of encouraging each other having a proper laugh in training,” Dan added.
