Dan Walker, 43, had fans in fit of giggles on Sunday after he posted some snaps of his charity climb up Kilimanjaro.

Taking to Twitter, Dan reminisced on the adventure of a lifetime.
He wrote: “Today is one year exactly since a bunch of us got the opportunity to climb Kilimanjaro for @comicrelief.
“It was an amazing experience with a group of people I will never forget. With your help, we managed to raise millions of pounds for charity and made friends for life.”
Among the celebs taking on the gruelling hike, was Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas, who needed some cheering up when times got tough.

“It was harder than any of us imagined and I think we all learned much more than we thought about ourselves and each other,” he wrote.
While sharing some inspirational posts about the trip, he included a little pick-me-up which provoked fans to call for him to join the Strictly 2020 line-up.
In a separate tweet, he shared the footage of what he called a Strictly audition, in bid to cheer his pal up.
“We had to help each other through some pretty low moments. I also made a #Strictly audition tape,” he wrote.
