STRICTLY'S Dan Walker has revealed he voted for his RIVAL as he urged fans to back them instead of him.
Fans voted to keep The BBC presenter and his professional dance partner, Nadiya Bychkova in the competition despite making a mistake during their foxtrot to Sleeping Beauty.
Dan, 44,had other ideas though and was determined to get behind his co-star Rose Ayling-Ellis to win the show.
The EastEnders actress, 26, is the first deaf person to star in the prime time dancing show.
Dan said: "I know I’m in it but I would give Rose Ayling-Ellis the glitterball now. I voted for her.
"She’s amazing, her foxtrot with Giovanni was magical and she is inspiring people every week.
"My family also sat next to hers last night and they are adorable too."
The star, who plays Frankie Lewis in the soap, left fans in floods of tears afterher magical foxtrot last weekend.
Meanwhile fans have spotted Dan's hilarious reaction after rivals get higher scores last Saturday night.
The judges savaged him for making a "disastrous" mistake and only scored him 21 points.
Eagle-eyed viewers were quick to spot Dan's "uninterested" reaction after some of the contestants scored higher than him.
One wrote: "I wish there was a way to watch #Strictly that was literally just a camera in front of @mrdanwalker's face. He's so indifferent to everyone now he's got a lower score!"
