Daniel O’Donnell has been serenading his Strictly Come Dancing co-stars by singing to them via voice messages.

The Donegal man is in a Whatsapp group with his fellow dancers, and his wife Majella said they often ask him to send them a tune.

“When they’ve had a stressful day, he’ll sing a little verse of a song to the group or they say ‘just going to bed now Daniel, sing us a song’ and he’ll sing a lullaby, it’s funny,” Majella told the Herald.

“I haven’t done that in a while now,” Daniel added.

Meanwhile, the 53-year-old is preparing to head back over to London for the final of the popular reality show.

“We’re all going back for the final, we have three days rehearsal, but I don’t know what dance I’ll be doing,” he said.
