Dan Walker will be hoping to impress the Strictly Come Dancing judges when he takes on a challenging Charleston during musicals week.

The BBC Breakfast presenter, 44, and his professional partner Nadiya Bychkova will dance to Good Morning from Singin’ In The Rain.

Despite landing near the bottom of the leaderboard during last Saturday’s show, Walker avoided the dance off and Dragons’ Den star Sara Davies was sent home.

He later remarked he did not know “who is voting for us”.

Tilly Ramsay and her partner Nikita Kuzmin will take on a couple’s choice dance to Revolting Children from Matilda, while Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, who are the dance competition’s first all-male couple, will perform a Viennese waltz to Chim Chim Cher-ee from Mary Poppins.

McFly singer Tom Fletcher and partner Amy Dowden will also perform a couple’s choice to On My Own from Les Miserables, while BBC presenter Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu will jive to the theme from Footloose.

EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis and her pro partner Giovanni Pernice will take on a quickstep to Love Is An Open Door from Disney’s Frozen, and TV presenter AJ Odudu will waltz to Edelweiss from The Sound Of Music alongside her partner Kai Widdrington.
