Strictly Come Dancing star runs London Marathon just hours after wowing judges in the ballroom | The Sun

STRICTLY Come Dancing star Tyler West proved he's the fittest man on the dance floor today, completing the London Marathon just hours after a high energy performance.

Overcast conditions before the race didn't dim his spirits as he spoke to the BBC's Gabby Logan alongside fellow celeb runner Mark Wright.

The Kiss DJ looked relaxed and happy on the 26mile tour of the capital, which he tackled to raise money for UK Youth – a charity whose mission is to empower young people of all ages and backgrounds.

Recording himself en route, he said: "The vibe, the atmosphere is mad."

No doubt Tyler had some motivational tunes pumping in his Air pods as he pounded the pavement in a colourful vest top emblazoned with his name.

His smile grew even bigger upon being awarded a medal at the finish line where his proud dance partner Dianne Buswell was waiting for a hug.

Acknowledging the extreme undertaking prior to the race, he told the BBC: "I committed to it earlier on in the year and I’m never going to let people down.

"Dianne will be looking after me anyway, making sure I don’t push myself too far."

The Aussie dancer was stood by his side and said: "It’s been your training for the week hasn’t it, to do this today."
