Dan Walker, 43, was called out by Kelvin Fletcher on Saturday night after he took to Twitter to show his support for two of this year’s Strictly contestants. The BBC host backed sports pundit Alex Scott, 35, and comedian Chris Ramsey, 33, reminding viewers that they hadn’t had any previous dance training before the talent show.

Dan’s tweet read: “I know I’m biased on this one but worth remembering Al is not a dancer.
“She and @IAmChrisRamsey have not been to stage school or had years of training. All the best tonight @AlexScott #StrictlyComeDancing #Strictly.”
The post got a wave of support from viewers who also applauded the pair for getting so far in the competition, but despite his sweet post, the presenter was called out by another contestant who he had mistakenly forgotten to include.
