Nicola Adams and Katya Jones, Strictly Come Dancing’s first ever same-sex couple, have been wowing the judges and audience with their routines this year – but the dancing duo are noticeably absent from this week’s episode.
Strictly Come Dancing has been lighting up Saturday nights on BBC One since Saturday, October 24.
Nicola Adams and Katya Jones weren’t eliminated by judges, so where are they this week?
Where are Nicola Adams and Katya Jones on Strictly?
Unfortunately Nicola Adams and Katya Jones have had to pull out of the competition because Katya has tested positive for coronavirus.
Despite taking precautions and forming a ‘bubble’ so that they could rehearse and perform together safely, Katya has managed to contract the virus, meaning that both she and Nicola must now isolate for two weeks following government guidelines.
Will Adams and Katya Jones return to Strictly?
Sadly, it looks like this is the end of the road for the pair.
Speaking of her early exit from the competition, Nicola said in a statement: ‘Hey guys! I’m absolutely devastated my Strictly journey has come to an end so soon. I had so much more to give and so many people to win this for!
‘But I just want to say a huge thank you to Katya for being the best dance partner anyone could ask for. She pushed me way out of my comfort zone and it’s been an incredible experience.’
‘I’m gutted to be out of the competition but in these unprecedented times and as frustrating as it is, the Covid measures in place are to keep everyone safe, and I’m doing what I can to help,’ she added.
‘I’ll be spending the next 14 days isolating so I’d like to apologise in advance for the ridiculous amount of TikToks I’ll be posting, in my new found free time when I’m not gaming!’
Will there still be an elimination on Strictly Come Dancing this week?
Despite the fact that Nicola and Katya have had to leave the competition early and we are now three couples down on the show, a spokesperson from Strictly Come Dancing has confirmed to Metro.co.uk that there will still be an elimination this week.
Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight on BBC One at 7.10pm.
