"Having watched the programme for a long time, I know that everybody does things differently," he began, adding:"Some people give up their jobs for three months, some people move to London and concentrate on the programme fully."Loading the player... var track=function (evt_name) { dataLayer.push({ 'event': evt_name, 'eventValue': { 'category': 'videos', 'action': evt_name, 'label': 'HELLO - gnOePDMb', 'videoUrl': '', 'videoTitle': 'Dan Walker teases who his Strictly partner is' } }); }; var playerInstance=playerInstance || []; playerInstance['gnOePDMb']=jwplayer('MC4wMjM1MDEwMCAxNjMxODA4MzIxODQ3MA=='); playerInstance['gnOePDMb'].setup({ sources: [ {file: '', label: '480'}, {file: '', label: '720 HD', default: 'true'}, {file: '', label: '1080 HD'}], primary: 'html5', image:'', related: { file: '', onclick: 'play' }, autostart: false, sharing: {} }); //TODO: convert static variables to dynamic (maxRetries and interval) function getDataPermutive() { return new Promise((resolve, reject)=> { let maxRetries=2; let countRetry=0; let checkingInterval=setInterval( function() { if (countRetry { // Resolve accepts a playlist item, this can be modified // The playlist item that is scheduled to load is // passed in as 'item' // Reject can be used to cancel a scheduled item from being loaded return new Promise((resolve, reject)=> { try { let playerConfig=playerInstance['gnOePDMb'].getConfig(); let tagUrl=playerConfig.advertising.schedule[0].tag; return getDataPermutive().then(_pdfps=> { let playerSegsPerm=encodeURIComponent('&permutive=' + encodeURIComponent(JSON.parse(_pdfps || '[]').slice(0, 250).join(','))); tagUrl=tagUrl.replace(/(cust_params[^&]+)/, '$1' + playerSegsPerm); const updatedAdSchedule={tag: tagUrl, offset: 'pre'}; const updatedPlaylistItem=Object.assign({}, item, {adschedule: [updatedAdSchedule]}); console.log("Permutive added to Pre-roll !!!"); resolve(updatedPlaylistItem); }).catch(()=> { //resolve without modifying the item console.warn("Permutive no data!!!"); resolve(); }); } catch(error) { console.warn(error); resolve(); } }); }); jwplayer().onPlay(function () { track('play'); }); jwplayer().onPause(function () { track('pause'); }); jwplayer().onComplete(function () { track('complete'); }); jwplayer().onSeek(function () { track('seek'); }); WATCH: Dan Walker teases who his Strictly partner will be

He continued:"I don't quite know how it's going to work with three o'clock starts at the beginning of the week and I'm also doing the NFL show [on a] Friday, so I've got two jobs plus Strictly to do."I'll fit the training in where I can, I'm determined to not go out of the competition for not trying hard enough. That might be my curse, but I will definitely do as much training as I possibly can around other stuff. [But] I think not doing 100 per cent Strictly stuff gives you a good bit of perspective on normal life which is probably important."

"I've done a lot of telly that I wanted to do for a long time and anyone who's got kids that age will know it's rare to do something that your kids are fully invested in. So they're really excited and that was a big part of it really.

"And they've only ever asked me to do two shows, Saturday Mash Up and this, and I did Saturday Mash Up in the summer, and here we are!" Read more: HELLO! »
