BBC Breakfast's Dan Walker has defended his position on Strictly Come Dancing – as he furiously hit back at critics who want him booted off.
The presenter made it through another week, while Olympian Adam Peaty and chef Tilly Ramsay were forced to battle it out in Sunday's dance-off.
It led Adam's mum to brand the show a "fix" – saying she "doesn't buy the public vote".
Posting on Instagram, the 44-year-old shared an article which asked how he was still on the show, and he admitted he's "not sure".
However, he added: "But we are incredibly thankful for all the support and it’s a true privilege to be a small part of the biggest show on the telly 🙏🏻😂.
"I know articles like this are sourced from a few comments on social media but each week I get thousands of messages from people who love the show and are really enjoying watching @nadiyabychkova teaching me to dance.
"When I’ve watched Strictly in the past I have always liked seeing great dancers but also those who learn to love it and are working hard to improve every week. It’s a TV show and not the world championships 🕺🏼💃🏼.
"I never thought I would be able to do some of the things Nadiya has taught me. She has given me a confidence that I thought was way beyond me. I just want to learn as many dances as possible.
"Anyway… on with the American Smooth. Whoever you vote for this weekend… I hope you enjoy the show. I will continue to do it with a massive smile on my face."
