Walker was forced to address abuse from some viewers again this week, who tweeted rude comments about him making it through another week.

The BBC Breakfast presenter responded: "Thank you to everyone who is sending lovely messages & enjoying us having fun on #Strictly and to the few who say… “Just leave” “Aren’t you ashamed?” “You’re a disgrace” “It’s a fix” (which I don’t get) or “Who is voting for them?” IT’S A TV SHOW! See you in the 1/4 finals."
