The preparation for the first live show saw him embroiled in a vaccine controversy, after it was reported that three of the professional dancers had not been stung.

Last week, The Sun claimed that two of Strictly’s 18 professional dancers made the decision not to be vaccinated against Covid-19, with the tabloid later claiming that a third also declined the offer to be bitten. .

This apparently led to feelings of “resentment” among members of the cast and crew of the hit BBC show.

Even Boris Johnson weighed in on the issue this week, with the PM saying he “was not afraid to lecture” the pros of Strictly by urging them to get a vaccine against Covid.

A spokesperson for the show told the PA news agency they couldn’t tell if the BBC or the production team knew about the vaccination status of professional dancers.

The representative added, “We are not commenting on speculation about anyone’s Covid vaccination status.

“The production of Strictly Come Dancing has followed and will continue to follow strict government guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone on the show. “

Strictly Come Dancing airs Saturday at 7 p.m. on BBC One.
