“#IHopeItWashesOff #Tantastic,” added the star.

“I’m trying to see, but … the glare … it’s too much!” One joked on Twitter while another person said it was “sooo funny”.
“You were tango !!!” teased another.
Another person said the moderator looked “fanTAN table” while one wrote: “At EastEnders you could get a really good role as an angry customer or as an outdoor heater.”
Followers make fun of Dan’s tan
Lots of people agreed with some of their own friend references.
“Where did you go? Was this place … the sun?” Said one.
“Did you count Mississippily?” posted another.
However, one fan assured Dan that his tan would likely be subdued on TV, writing, “The salvation is that the studio lights will fade the color a bit. Good luck for tonight! “
And an appreciative viewer was impressed by the TV star’s “110% commitment”.
Dan – who will be paired with pro Nadiya Bychkova in the BBC ballroom competition – previously suggested that all of the sequins, glitters, and glamor could be one of the most uncomfortable parts of the competition for him.
Before hitting the dance floor, he admitted that he was “40% excited, 60% scared” and said that it had mostly to do with the outfits.

“Early warning … it’s a little different tonight than at MC Hammer.”
