Dan’s praised Cheryl’s approach to taking on the new skill of ice dance at the age of 63, saying: “Coming back to Dancing On Ice has already been more than I could have hoped, purely because of Cheryl. She’s not said she wants to be the best, just the best she can be and to entertain everyone at home.”

He appeared on the show between 2006 and 2014 - winning three times to become Dancing On Ice's most successful professional skater.
