Strictly pro forced into isolation after catching Covid will perform on Saturday’s show


The Strictly Come Dancing professional who was forced into isolation after catching Covid will be starring on Saturday’s show.

The unnamed dancer has been able to reunite with their celebrity partner after testing negative for the bug on Wednesday.

BBC bosses have reportedly allowed the performer to have two or three days of training alongside their famous dancing hopeful before they take to the floor this weekend.

The pair being able to practice face to face is sure to be great news for the duo after they are thought to have been trying to learn a routine via video calls during the professional’s isolation stint.

A TV insider told The Sun : “Strictly producers will be breathing a huge sigh of relief at this news.

Last night, the BBC released a statement following reports that some of the professionals taking part were threatening to quit the hit series amid a row over the Covid-19 vaccination.

Reports emerged claiming that three professionals were refusing to get the jab and then further allegations claimed that some of the celebrities had refused to dance with pros that had not been vaccinated.

A statement from the corporation said: “A lot has been written about vaccinations and Strictly in recent days.

“The BBC has never commented nor confirmed the vaccination status of anyone on the show. It’s not our place to.

“It is not the case that concerns have been raised with the BBC or the Strictly production team from dancers or celebrities about vaccination, or that they have threatened to quit.”

The statement continued: “We have in place strict procedures to protect those on the show and the wider production. Among the many measures in place on Strictly, the dancers are tested regularly to be in close contact with their partners.
