Daniel O'Donnell has revealed that he is enjoying the whole process of rehearsals and hype surrounding Strictly Come Dancing.

The Donegal native (53) was innocently unaware that he may have to get the tango treatment when he appears on the live shows.

"I have never had a spray tan. Will I have to have spray tans? I suppose I'll try anything once."

"I've worn a few jackets with sequins on them through the years. In moderation, I'm game," he told the Irish Daily Star.

Meanwhile, O'Donnell, Peter Andre and Iwan Thomas have become the unlikely 'three best friends'.

The trio have bonded as they undergo preparations to take part in the popular entertainment show.
