The show kicked off last weekend

Strictly Come Dancing contestant Tom Fletcher has tested positive for Covid-19, alongside his dance partner Amy Dowden.

The BBC confirmed that the pair will now miss next Saturday’s live show.

The news of their illness follows reports that three of the show’s dancers had not been vaccinated, though there is no suggestion that either Fletcher or Dowden were among them.

The McFly singer and the professional had performed well in their first dance, scoring 21 out of a possible 40.

Fletcher and Dowden, were expected to return the following week “all being well”, said the BBC.

A statement from the broadcaster said: “The pair are now self-isolating separately following the latest government guidelines.

"While they will both miss Saturday’s live show, Strictly Come Dancing protocols mean that, all being well, they will return the following week.”
