On Wednesday’s BBC Breakfast, Dan Walker teased a return to the BBC competition for the final show on Saturday. His co-presenter Sally Nugent joked that he’s not allowed “to breathe” near the Strictly Come Dancing finalists as Dan explained the “secret bubble” in place to protect the remaining contestants.

Dan, 44, was on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing before being eliminated in week 10.

“Yesterday I was back on the Strictly ballroom floor,” the broadcaster told Sally during Wednesday’s BBC Breakfast.

“They let you back in?” Sally asked, feigning surprise.

The presenter joked: “Yes, I’m back in – I’m in the final! No, I’m not.”

He explained: “We’re doing our group dance for the final, so I was rehearsing yesterday.

“So the three finalists, AJ, Rose and John are all in there for the final this Saturday-“

“I imagine they’re in a bubble,” Sally commented.

“They’re in a secret bubble somewhere where you can’t get anywhere near them,” Dan confirmed.

“Yeah exactly, don’t breathe on them!” Sally responded.

Dan explained: “But the rest of us are all in like a ‘dancy bubble’ now.

“So, it was nice to see everybody again, all back in the ballroom.”

“So you’re actually dancing again on Saturday night?” asked the BBC’s newly appointed presenter.

“There’s one big number at the end where we’re all in and everyone has a bit from their favourite dance,” the BBC star continued.

He added: “So, just wait and see, it’s good fun!”

“I cannot wait for that,” Sally remarked. “Saturday night everybody, make sure you’re watching.”

This year’s Strictly finalists include EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice, television presenter AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington, and celebrity chef John Whaite and Johannes Radebe.

Saturday will see one pair lifting the Glitterball Trophy after receiving the most votes from the public.

Last week, presenter Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu were eliminated, narrowly missing out on a place in the final.

It seems plenty of familiar faces will be on screen again on Saturday though, as the contestants reunite for the special dance.

The Strictly Come Dancing final airs on Saturday at 7pm on BBC One, while BBC Breakfast airs daily at 6am on BBC One.
