BBC star Dan Walker reckons he scored some fancy footwork on Strictly thanks to Scots footballer Andy Robertson.The news presenter came fifth in the reality dance show at the end of last year and claims he was able to pull some impressive moves using a cardboard cutout of the Scotland captain and Liverpool player.Dan revealed how professional partner Nadiya Bychkova demonstrated some of the pair's tougher lifts on a cutout of the left-back which he had brought with him from the BBC Breakfast office.
