BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker is clearly excited for his Strictly stint, as he was confirmed as part of the line-up for the 2021 series earlier this year.
As preparations get underway, Dan is clearly getting into the swing of things as he shared a snap backstage to show off his brand new dancing shoes.
Holding up a huge black shiny shoe with a sturdy heel, Dan pulled a shocked face as he looked down at the "whopper" pair.
He captioned the snap, which appeared to be taken in a dressing room: "The ‘specially made’ whopper dancey shoe has just arrived.
"Look at the size of this puppy!
"Enjoying day 2 of #Strictly prep. Just met @pernicegiovann1 and he was lovely."
However, fans were distracted by the size of the shoes, and couldn't resist rushing to the comments to share cheeky jokes.
One fan asked: "You know what they say about men with big feet?"
Another added: "Bet your lady has a constant smile on her face."
A third chipped in: "You know what they say about people with big feet hey? They have big shoes!"
A fourth simply commented: "Oh wow… huge."
Meanwhile, Dan may have found himself in hot water after accidentally revealing the official start date of the 2021 Strictly series before it was confirmed by BBC.
As his co-star Louise Minchin confirmed her departure date from the famous red sofa, Dan got his phone out on air.
He said: "I was just going to put your date in the diary.
"I meet and greet the partner in a couple of days time, and actually the first show is on the 18th and then the live shows start on the 25th."
Louise replied: "Perfect, I leave on the 15th, you leave on the 18th."
Dan later addressed the slip-up as he appeared in a video for the Strictly video on Instagram as he said: "About time someone told us the start date for #Strictly this year," adding "Sorry" and "#StrickiLeaks".
BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC1.
