Judi Love and her partner Graziano Di Prima will miss this weekend's Strictly Come Dancing after she tests positive for coronavirus.

Judi Love is to miss this weekend's Strictly Come Dancing live show after testing positive for coronavirus.

As per the show's protocols for this series, the 41-year-old and her pro partner Graziano Di Prima have been granted a week out from the competition and she will rejoin the show the following week - if she returns a negative coronavirus test.

Tom Fletcher and his partner Amy Dowden were previously given the second live show of the series off after both of them tested positive but were cleared to return in time for week three.

A show spokesperson said: "Judi Love has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating following the latest government guidelines.

"While Judi and Graziano will not be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this weekend, Strictly Come Dancing protocols mean that all being well, they will return the following week."

Love had been the favourite to be voted off this weekend, having found herself in the dance-off for the last two weeks.
