Piers couldnâ€™t resist making a jibe on Twitter after the BBC Breakfast presenter missed out on a place in next weekâ€™s semi-final following Sunday nightâ€™s dance-off against AJ Odudu.
After Sundayâ€™s results show, Dan tweeted his praise for his professional dance partner Nadiya Bychkova, calling her a â€œsuperstarâ€.
â€œWellâ€¦ what a ride,â€ he tweeted. â€œ#Strictly has been a truly wonderful experience for me. I enjoyed every second. @NadiyaBychkova is a superstar: kind, encouraging, funny, clever, the best teacher I could ever have hoped for & a great friend. Thanks for the support & thanks for having us.â€
Just minutes later, Piers tweeted: â€œYou came 5th, mate. She needed a better pupil.â€
However, Dan hit back with the perfect response, reminding Piers about his infamous walk-out from Good Morning Britain earlier this year.
Sharing a gif of the moment Piers stormed off the set of the ITV morning show following a heated debate with his former colleague Alex Beresford about Meghan Markle, Dan said: â€œI did think about walking off when @CraigRevHorwood gave me some grief in week 2 butâ€¦ who does that?â€
Maybe Piers should sign up for next yearâ€™s series of Strictly and weâ€™ll all get a chance to see how well heâ€™d fair on the dance floor?
Following his exit from Strictly, Dan admitted there was â€œno way I could competeâ€ with the remaining four contestants.
Speaking on Mondayâ€™s BBC Breakfast, the 44-year-old revealed his body had â€œgiven upâ€.
â€œI think the right people are in the semi-finals, the best four dancers in the competition, he said. â€œMy time had come to an end, thereâ€™s no way I could compete.
â€œMy bodyâ€™s given up,â€ he added. â€œIt lasted eight weeks â€“ a lot longer than I thought it would â€“ but itâ€™s been great.â€
Four couples â€“ TV presenter AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington, EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice, Bake Off winner John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, and CCBC host Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu â€“ remain in the competition for the semi-finals.
The Strictly Come Dancing semi-final airs on 11 December at 7.05pm, with the results show on 12 December 12 at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
