After Rylan played a clip of Dan and Nadiya’s “best bits” on the show, the professional dancer got emotional as she paid a moving tribute to the presenter.
Speaking about her friendship with Dan, Nadiya began: “It was very special to me.
“I loved teaching him but at the same time, I learned so much from him.
“You gave me confidence in front of the camera. You managed to create than environment for me where I felt safe.
“I felt free to be myself for the first time and your friendship gave me wings to fly again.”
“I am going to cry,” Rylan chipped in as both Dan and Nadiya were visibly moved. “That was beautiful.”
It Takes Two airs weekdays at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
