Tyler was unveiled as the seventh celebrity contestant to take part in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing earlier this month.

He announced in a statement: “I am SO thrilled to be joining the Strictly family!” When I started writing this, I already had cramps. It will be an incredible and crazy journey that will undoubtedly be SO far outside my comfort zone.
