The BBC news reader, Dan Walker, confirms that he does NOT participate in Strictly Come Dancing.

Oops! BBC host Dan Walker, 41, confirmed that he will NOT participate in Strictly Come Dancing ... after accidentally tweeting that he would be in a social media blunder on Friday

He was invited to join the long list of BBC announcers to go to the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom.

And Dan Walker caused quite a stir on Friday when he tweeted that he was "100% doing Strictly this year", only to realize that, moments later, he actually meant the opposite.

The host of BBC Breakfast, 41, entered the microblog site to try to confirm that he was not participating in the beloved dance competition after the rumors, but he forgot to write the crucial "no" in his statement, sending the fanatics to a frenzy

Originally, it was assumed that Dan's original tweet would highlight his upcoming projects, but the fans took advantage of his apparent strict revelation.

In the message, the station wrote: & # 39; Now … the rumors are not true. I'm 100% doing @bbcstrictly this year. Too busy with life, @BBCbreakfast, Football Focus and a new questionnaire at @BBCOne starting next month called #Chasethecase & # 39;

Realizing his mistake after the fans shared his euphoria over his seemingly great revelation, Dan quickly went online again to tell his loyal fans that he would not be tying his dance shoes any time soon.

Maybe? He was invited to join the long list of BBC announcers to go to the ballroom for Strictly, with Natasha Kaplinsky (pictured with Bendan Cole) dominating the dance floor in 2004.

Dan wrote: Ooops! NOT DOING. A very important word to get lost. I'll be looking from the security of the sofa. #Not & # 39;

If his confirmed trip to the ballroom was confirmed, Dan would join a long list of BBC talents to dance for the glitterball trophy.

Former BBC news anchor Natasha Kaplinsky first won Strictly in 2004, while BBC Breakfast hosts Bill Turnbull, Susanna Reid and Naga Muchetty also show off their dance skills.

Strictly Come Dancing is scheduled to begin in September, with Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, Faye Tozer from Steps, presenter Scarlett Moffatt and Olympic diver Tom Daley slated for the lineup.

The stars certainly have big shoes to fill, with actor Joe McFadden lifting the glitter ball trophy with his partner Katya Jones last year after his show Charleston and Viennese Waltz.

A spokesman for the BBC told MailOnline: "We do not comment on speculation, the full alignment will be announced soon."

However, it was claimed last week that the producers are struggling to sign the list A talent due to the so-called Strict curse.

The Sun reported that executives have also banned the appearance of reality stars in the show, which has reduced the selection of celebrities.

One source said: "They have asked for many important names, but with people like Louise Redknapp and Ben Cohen in mind, many people in relationships say no.

"The bosses obviously hope to bring some bigger names, but they need all of them signed by the end of this month."
