Strictly 2021: ‘Angry’ star paired with unvaccinated pro who “thought they’d be safe”
After being paired with an unvaccinated professional dancer, a STRICTLY COME DANCING 2021 contestant reportedly became frustrated.
Strictly Come Dancing 2021 premiered over the weekend, with spectators witnessing the pairing of new celebrity participants with professional dancers. The couples have already been hard at work in the training room in preparation for the first live event on Saturday, as the show was pre-recorded.
The BBC show has a number of coronavirus protocols in place to protect the actors and crew, but it has just been rocked by a vaccination scandal.
Three dancers have refused to be vaccinated against COVID-19, according to reports.
One celebrity participant, who has been paired with one of the unvaccinated pros, has been described as “mad” by the news.
“They just couldn’t believe their spouse wouldn’t have had a jab,” a pal of the star reportedly remarked.
“Strictly is the most popular show on television, and it has promoted anti-Covid efforts throughout the pandemic.
“They assumed they’d be safe, so finding out their partner hasn’t had a single jab is really concerning.”
“The couple has already spent tens of hours practising together,” a source told The Sun.
“Clearly, there is a lot of anger here, as well as a lot of questions.”
A BBC representative earlier stated that they would not reveal which of the 18 members of the professional team had been stabbed.
“We do not comment on conjecture about someone’s COVID vaccination status,” they said in a statement.
“To protect the safety of those on the program, the Strictly Come Dancing production has followed and will continue to follow strict government guidelines.”

The news came after the BBC announced that one of the cast members had tested positive for the virus.
They kept the name of the person a secret, and their partner, happily, tested negative.
“If a celebrity receives a positive test, it doesn’t always mean they’re out of the competition,” Sarah James, executive producer of Strictly, told this website and other media.
“It could imply they could take a week off and yet get enough training in to return [after 10 days of self-isolation],” says the researcher.
