Dan Walker reveals some Strictly Come Dancing stars have quit the WhatsApp group

Strictly Come Dancing star Dan Walker has revealed that some of his former dance show co-stars have quit the show’s WhatsApp group soon after being eliminated from the show.

The BBC Breakfast host, 44, lifted the lid on the fact that some of his former co-stars left the group straight after being voted off the show.

The presenter refused to name names or the content of the messages in the group and said they “will never see the light of day”.

Dan told The Daily Star of the WhatsApp group members: “We started off with all 15. Most who have left have stayed in the group.”

With Dan staying tight-lipped on who has left the group, fans can only speculate on which stars have left the group.

Dan did reveal that are some images on the group chat posted by some of the celebrities that will remain private.

He said: “There are pictures on there that will never see the light of day.”

The Sheffield-born contestant is paired with professional dancer Nadiya Bychkova for the 2021 series.

Dan, who hit out at Strictly critics recently who asked “how is he still in the show”, went on: “We talk about anything from jam to jive.

“As the weeks have gone on, people talk about their injuries, painful knees, what their dance partner has tried to make them do, how exhausted they are.

“It’s a fun group and a good release for people at the end of the day.”

After receiving criticism for his dancing ability in recent weeks but the TV presenter strongly defended himself on Instagram on Tuesday to his 240,000 followers.

In a passionate post by the TV presenter, he said: "I know articles like this are sourced from a few comments on social media but each week I get thousands of messages from people who love the show and are really enjoying watching @nadiyabychkova teaching me to dance."

He added: "When I’ve watched Strictly in the past I have always liked seeing great dancers but also those who learn to love it and are working hard to improve every week. It’s a TV show and not the world championships."
