Dan has made clear that he has no intention of leaving the Breakfast sofa after he recently confirmed that his absence was due to a holiday.
Meanwhile, the presenter also took part in Strictly Come Dancing while he continued his regular day job at Salford studios.
He recently shared why he would be unable to take part in the dance tour which will kick off next week.
Taking to Instagram last month, Dan wrote: “ust to triple clarify… my decision not to do the #Strictly tour this year has nothing to do with the tiny minority of people who were miffed we were still in it.”
He continued: “I’m currently responding to some of the 8000+ kind, uplifting DMs/emails from lovely humans since Sunday. Thank you to everyone who has reached out. I’ll post some of them once I’ve been through them all. They are really touching.
“I can’t wait to take my family to watch the #Strictly tour this year but I sadly won’t be part of it.”
As for why he won’t be going on tour, he explained: “I have too many work commitments and I want to be at home after spending so much longer on the actual show than I ever expected. I’m sure it’ll be amazing – as usual.”
BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
