Dedicated Daniel O'Donnell fans sending cash to UK relatives to vote for him on Strictly

Some Daniel O'Donnell fans are going to great lengths to ensure their favourite hoofer stays on Strictly Come Dancing.
Irish fans cannot vote on the hit BBC show so some are sending cash to friends and relatives across the UK in order to vote for the Donegal crooner.
Daniel (53), who is partnered with Kristina Rihanoff (37), has admitted he is aware of the moves some fans are making.
"I have heard that and it shows true dedication," he told the Irish Daily Star. "It really does show the lengths people are going to back me.
"Some people would have knonw me and known what I do but others have never heard of me and it's great to meet new people."
Daniel will perform on either Friday or Saturday night's show this week but has yet to find out what's in store.
"I don't know whether I'm coming or going. I'm terrified," he said.
"I don't even know which night I'm on. I don't know what song I'm dancing to and I don't even know what I'll be wearing."
What is even more concerning is Daniel's habit of sticking his tongue out when he's concentrating, something he'll need to work on before show time at the weekend.
"When I am under pressure I have a habit of sticking my tongue out," he said.
"When I am concentrating and trying to get a step right, Kristina keeps telling me to get my tongue in!"
