Dan, the Channel Five news presenter who made his name as Football Focus presenter and a star of Strictly Come Dancing, lost his luggage on the train from Sheffield to London, including all his clean pants.

But he has now tweeted his thanks to the staff at East Midlands Railways who pulled out all the stops to get his bag back to him.

He said on his social media account: “THANK YOU - particularly to Ahmed & Dennis - and @EastMidRailway for finding my bag and getting it back to me today.

“It went around the country but arrived back at St Pancras & I picked it up from Ann. I will have fresh pants in the morning.”

East Midlands Railways replied to him: “You're most welcome Dan! Pleased to hear you're reunited with your bag and clean pants.”

East Midlands Railways is the main line railway service route that links Sheffield to England’s capital city.

Dan, who stayed in Sheffield permanently after originally arriving as a student in the city, recently said he had jumped back in the saddle after being knocked off his bike in a nasty accident in the city last month.
