Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Danny Mac hits back at 'past dance experience' complaints

strictly come dancing 2016 training - 23

Strictly Come Dancing's Danny Mac has hit back at complaints over his past dance experience.

Ahead of tonight's final, the favourite to win said it would be a "shame" if his previous performance experience went against him.

Danny explained: "People say there's dance experience, but everyone's got varying degrees of what they must know.

"I can give you a full background if you like - it was three years at drama school and never before and never since. But I don't know if it's going to affect me, I guess we'll find out."

Speaking at a Strictly press conference ahead of the final, Danny continued: "The thing that bothers me the most about it is that I know what I came into this competition with.

"And anything I've achieved, giving credit to [my drama school experience] would be taking away from Oti and that wouldn't be fair because it's completely, 100% down to her."

He added (via DigitalSpy): "I was never going to be a dancer, I was never dancing, that was never going to happen, I've never been employed as one. It was part of my training at drama school.

"But if people want to believe that because they don't want to vote for me, then so be it, there's nothing I can really do about it.

"But I give 100% credit to what I've achieved in the show to this girl next to me."

The remaining three couples will return to the dancefloor in the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 final tonight on Saturday 17th December at 6:40PM.

There is NO results show, either tonight or tomorrow, with the winner revealed straight after the performances.
