Appearing on Strictly Come Dancing spin-off It Takes Two, the BBC Breakfast star told Janette Manrara the dance had been choreographed with his wife Sarah in mind. Dan Walker, with dance partner Nadiya Bychkova, will be dancing the routine to his wife’s favourite song, Billy Joel’s She’s Always A Woman.
During the chat show, which gives insight into how the couples’ are coming along with their training, former professional dancer-turned host Janette got Dan to explain why this week’s dance would be so special.
“Speaking of the next dance, let’s talk about it,” the 37-year-old commented.
“You’re doing a Viennese Waltz and you’re dancing to this beautiful song…”
The 70s tune began playing overheard as the trio swayed to the music.
Janette divulged: “But Dan, this song is extra special for you, isn’t it?”
“Yeah,” the presenter agreed. “It’s one of my wife’s favourites.”
Turning to Nadiya, he continued: “I gave it to you right at the start of the competition.
“I said if we could ever dance to this, this would be amazing.
“And Nadiya’s choreographed it with my wife Sarah in mind, so hopefully we’ll get it right.”
He informed Janette of a success he’s had with ballroom dancing.
The 44-year-old remarked: “Do you know what though? We had a ballroom breakthrough this week.”
“Did you?” asked the host, adding: “Please this is breaking news on It Takes Two.”

Dan explained: “I’ve always said to Nadiya how do you… in the Cha Cha Cha or the Paso, you go for it and give it everything.
“That’s how you get the joy and the fun across.
“I’ve always said..” Nadiya completed: “How do you get the joy in ballroom?”
“And she’s always said…” Dan added, gesturing for the professional to complete the sentence.
“And I tell him it’s the harmony – how two people are moving together synchronised.”
Earlier this week, Dan told Lorraine Kelly that Nadiya had come into his life “at the perfect time”.
He informed the ITV host: “I think that’s how we both feel about this sort of dancing relationship, because Nadiya’s become a big part of our family.
“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.”
Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 6.45pm on BBC One.
