Strictly Come Dancing bosses at the BBC have spoken out about the recent furore surrounding the recent reports that three of the professional dancers this year haven't had their COVID-19 vaccine.

There were reports that one of those pros is partnered with a celebrity this year, and other contestants had supposedly shared concerns behind the scenes about being partnered up with anyone un-jabbed.

Finally clarifying the situation, the official BBC press office Twitter page has shared a statement.

It read: "A lot has been written about vaccinations and Strictly in recent days.

"The BBC has never commented nor confirmed the vaccination status of anyone on the show. It's not our place to.

"It's not the case that concerns have been raised with the BBC or the Strictly production team from dancers or celebrities about vaccination, or that they have threatened to quit."

"We have in place strict procedures to protect those on the show and the wider production," the team continued.

"Among the many measures in place on Strictly, the dancers are tested regularly to be in close contact with their partners."

The statement went on to say that everyone on the production are more "focused" on this weekend's first live show, adding they will be intent on delivering another "brilliant series" to excited viewers.
