Dan dedicated the emotive movement to his wife Sarah, who was sitting in the audience of the live show on Saturday.
He admitted the song is one of the pair’s favourites and is a warming reminder of when he and Sarah first met at Sheffield University when they were both students.
After his stand out performance the star proudly spoke about the love of his life leaving fans emotional at his response.

He told host Claudia Winkleman, ‘I’m going to gush over her for a moment. She is one of those people the you know her the more you love her. And I’ve loved her for over half of my life.’
The camera then panned to Sarah, with Dan adding: ‘There she is, she’s such a special person and I love her to bits. I hope she enjoyed that because we really loved that.’
Nadiya also gushed over Sarah and her partner Dan because she could feel ‘free to dance’.
Those watching at home soon commented on the adorable moment, which left them very emotional indeed.
