Loose Women’s Judi Love was banned from Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday after testing positive for Covid-19.
The presenter is the second contestant to catch the virus in this series, after Tom Fletcher caught it the day after the first live show.
Judi and dance partner Graziano Di Prima have been in the dance for the past two weeks, but have been rescued by the judges both times.
The couple will return next week, “everything is fine,” a spokesperson for the show said.
Hey dear ones, it is with great disappointment that I will not be performing this weekend @bbcstrictly due to the positive test with Covid 19. Hoping to make a speedy recovery and dance for you next weekend. Stay safe and thank you for your good wishes #JudiLove #Strictly ❤️

A Strictly statement said: “Judi Love tested positive for Covid-19 and is now self-isolating following the latest government guidelines.
“Even though Judi and Graziano won’t be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this weekend, the Strictly Come Dancing protocols mean that hopefully, they’ll be back next week.”

They were supposed to perform Olivia Newton-John’s Cha Cha Cha to Physical in this week’s show.
Tom and his partner Amy Dowden skipped a week after they both tested positive.
Meanwhile, Robert Webb withdrew completely, saying he “bit more than I could chew”, two years after undergoing open heart surgery.
Former rugby star Ugo Monye is expected to be back on track this Saturday, however, after missing last week’s show with back problems.
