During his time on Strictly Dan dedicated his Viennese Waltz to Sarah and revealed it was a sentimental since it was performed to her favourite song, She’s Always A Woman by Billy Joel.

He told host Claudia Winkleman: ‘I’m just going to gush over her for a moment. Because she’s one of those people, the more you know her the more you love her.

‘And I’ve known her and loved her for over half my life.’ 

As the camera focused on her, Dan continued: ‘There she is, she’s absolutely amazing, she’s such a special person and I love her to bits. I hope she enjoyed that because we really loved it.’

Dan has been married to wife Sarah for 21 years and the couple have three children.

One source told MailOnline: ‘Dan and Nadiya have such a great bond and he has been a pillar of strength and support for her following the breakup with Matija. 

‘The bond between them started during Strictly, leaving the cast and crew surprised at how close they became. They were literally inseparable and got on so well and this has continued even now the series is over.’

Another source added: ‘Dan supported Nadiya with everything, including her breakup, which only made their partnership stronger.

‘He even grew close to her mother and daughter, who really enjoyed watching them dance together on Strictly.

‘Dan and Nadiya enjoy a deep and special bond, which has really helped her to get on with her new life following the split.’

Nadiya has also reportedly been leading on rumoured new love interest Kai. They are reportedly ‘very much together’ following her split from fiancé Matija  

The pair were first seen heading into the same hotel on a couple of occassions, with an onlooker telling The Sun: ‘Kai and Nadiya didn’t seem at all secretive about their relationship – they’re a couple like any other.’
