Ugo Monye will miss this weekend's Strictly Come Dancing due to a back injury.
The former rugby player, 38, and his pro partner Oti Mabuse - champion of the last two series in a row - have been granted a week off by producers to give him a chance to recuperate.
Announcing the news on Twitter, Monye wrote: "Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to dance this weekend on the show.
"I have a history of back problems which has always been managed under the guidance of medical professionals.
"Unfortunately this has been causing me some unwanted back problems this week!
"I have been advised by medical professionals and with huge support from Strictly to get some treatment & rest to ensure that I can get myself back to full capacity & fighting fit for next week.
"Gutted Oti & I won't be dancing this weekend but wishing all the other contestants the best of luck & will be cheering them on from home!"
The news comes just a day after Robert Webb announced that he had been forced to quit the competition on medical advice.
