Writing over a black and white photo of the floor of the waiting room, Tyler told his followers:

‘Everything’s cool, but wanna shout out the NHS, especially the paramedic and A&E team,’ he wrote over the black and white snap.

‘We are truly blessed with all the hard work they do, they really don’t get enough credit. Thank you.’

Tyler was unveiled as the seventh celebrity contestant taking part in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing earlier this month. 

The KISS FM DJ broke the news on the station’s breakfast show hosted by Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely.

He announced in a statement: ‘I am SO gassed to be joining the Strictly family! As I started writing this I already got cramp. It’s going to be one crazy incredible journey which will no doubt be SO far outside my comfort zone.’
