BBC Breakfast's Dan Walker collapsed after performing the Quickstep with his partner Nadiya Bychkova on Strictly Come Dancing's first live show.

Saturday night saw Dan and the rest of the celebrity contestants brave the dance floor with an array of routines, and Dan certainly gave it his best shot.

However, as the Quickstep came to an end and was met by a round of applause, Dan collapsed onto a red sofa in the middle of the floor.

"Oh he's having a lie down!" host Tess Daly shouted, before telling Nadiya: "You have broken him!"

And it seems the judging panel was surprised too, as Anton Du Beke told him : "I have to be honest with you about this, I was a bit nervous about this, I thought you were gonna be awful but you were terrific!

"I love your energy, you covered the floor, brilliant. You've got great posture but your arms aren't perfect," he added, before describing the routine as "tremendous".

Craig was a little more harsh with his feedback and told Dan: "I can see you mouthing the counts, you need to get rid of that darling. I was surprised, pleasantly surprised actually."

Motsi Mabuse then told the presenter: "That was not a perfect Quickstep, we all know that, but I felt you risked something, you came out on the dance floor and you gave it your best. This is the first week and if you keep that up, you are going to be a shining star!"

As Dan and Nadiya awaited their score and spoke to Claudia Winkleman, Dan was keen to thank his professional partner for not making him "look like an idiot".

"I've spent most of my life terrible of dance floors because I'm tall and awkward, but this amazing woman has enabled me to do that in 10 days time, which is just truly incredible," he told Claudia.

The pair managed to get a total score of 24 and Dan revealed that he'd promised Nadiya he would buy her a present if their score was double figures (

"She deserves all the praise for me not looking like an idiot out there, so thank you very much Nadiya," he added as they shared a cuddle.
