BBC Strictly Come Dancing's Tyler West says he 'didn't sign up for this' as he's left screaming in Blackpool

Strictly Come Dancing star Tyler West said he 'didn't sign up for this' as he was left less than impressed in Blackpool. The Kiss FM DJ is in the seaside resort after he and dance partner Dianne Buswell made it through to another week in the BBC One competition.

Last weekend was a tense one for the dancing pair after they landed in the bottom two for the first time. Tyler and Dianne performed a fiery Paso Doble which left Strictly viewers distracted due to the fact that Tyler was almost topless apart from a tiny sparkly waistcoat.

Despite receiving a decent score of 31 out of 40, it wasn't enough to save them from the bottom-two and Tyler and Dianne were prepared to dance again to stay in the competition. They were all set to face Tony Adams and Katya Jones in the dreaded dance-off when an announcement was made by the show's co-host Tess Daly.

She revealed that due to an injury and being unable to perform again, Tony had withdrawn from the competition making him and Katya the latest couple to leave the dance contest and miss out on a place in the Blackpool special. However, it did mean that Tyler and Dianne were straight through to the annual trip to the famous Tower Ballroom, which hasn't actually been able to happen for three years due to Covid.

And to mark their trip to the seaside resort, it appears Dianne decided to put Tyler through his paces - but not in the training room. Tyler, 26, posted a video of himself strapped into one of the Pleasure Beach's rollercoasters as he was filmed by a giggling Dianne.

"This right here, I did not sign up for this," Tyler complained while locked in a ready-to-go on the exhilarating ride. "My feet don't touch the floor..." he cried before Dianne asked: "Give us a big smile?"

But Tyler did nothing but smile as he looked terrified of what was to come. Dianne then filmed his journey on the rollercoaster, with screams heard in the distance.

When he arrived back, the radio star appeared scarred by his experience. Wiping his eyes, Dianne laughed before he gave her a telling look. But fans clearly found it hilarious as they littered the posts with crying laughing emojis.

Well done Tyler." @jhawthorne378 added: "Oh bless…You’re too funny…."
