Danny Mac says he’s hoping to make the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 final, but doesn’t think about winning.

Danny is the current bookies favourite in the contest and last week topped the judges’ marks once again.

Discussing the possibility of winning the show, Danny said this week: “It’s a long way off. I’m just thinking about getting through that elimination and being able to dance again.

“I don’t think about lifting the glitterball, that’s too far ahead.”

Speaking to OK! magazine, Danny continued: "Winning would be the ultimate achievement.

“But that’s a long way off, and it’s such a tough, tough competition.

“But the final is my main goal so that I can learn every single dance and experience everything.

And he pointed out that the competition was anyone’s to win, regardless of the scores from the judges.

Danny said: "Everyone is doing amazingly an it’s down to the audience so it’s not just a case of the strongest dancers going through.

“There are so many other factors. You have to be entertaining and the audience respects the contestants that improve week on week.”

This weekend it's off to Blackpool where Danny and pro partner Oti Mabuse will be dancing the Charleston to ‘Puttin’ On The Ritz’ by Gregory Porter.

Strictly Come Dancing returns Saturday night at 6:55PM On BBC One.
