He’s the sporty type and many of his early media jobs were linked to football.

These included Match of the Day Kickabout for CBBC, a Match of the Day Skills Special and a show about the start of the Premier League season in 2017.

Going by his social media, super-sculpted Tyler clearly doesn’t take many days off from the gym.

On his website Tyler explains he has always been a keen sportsman.

Indeed, he was apparently rather talented at handball, and represented the GB National team from a young age.

It seems Tyler is already feeling the impact of his preparations for the BBC dance floor.

He said: “I am SO gassed to be joining the Strictly family! As I started writing this I already got cramp.”

Tyler also indicated dancing will be a challenge for him and test his limits.

He continued: “It’s going to be one crazy incredible journey which will no doubt be SO far outside my comfort zone.

It’s going to be one crazy incredible journey.

“It’s a show that means so much to me and my family. And I can’t wait to seriously shake a leg on that shiny dance floor… with a side of sequins.”

Strictly side effects

Cramp aside, it appears Strictly training may also be affecting Tyler in another physical way, too.

He recently told fans that he’s been feeling really tired by the time he gets to bed.

Furthermore, he’s even started to snore for the first time.

Tyler explained: “I’ve started to snore. I’ve never snored in my life right and now I thought I need to do something about this and track it and see what it actually sounds like, is it actually that bad so I downloaded a sleep app.”

Let’s hope the snoring isn’t contagious and Tyler’s boogying doesn’t make the viewers drowsy and slumbersome…
