Strictly's Katya axed after getting Covid 'at shop' & Motsi forced to isolate

STRICTLY Come Dancing has been thrown into chaos because of Covid-19.

And the killer bug has had an impact on Nicola Adams and Katya Jones who are not on the show tonight (November 14, 2020).

Where are Nicola Adams and Katya Jones on Strictly tonight?

Nicola Adams and Katya Jones had to leave after the dance pro tested positive.

The pair will no longer be taking part in Strictly 2020.

They announced their departure from the series on November 12, 2020 after Katya tested positive for the virus.

At least four crew members in contact with Katya also have to isolate.

Nicola also has to isolate after her close dances with partner Katya.

How did Katya Jones contract coronavirus?

Strictly bosses have launched a probe into how Covid has left the show in chaos despite the “bubbles” system.

The investigation is thought to include Katya's visit to a sandwich shop before she tested positive.

Dancers are now being told to bring packed lunches to rehearsals.

Virus rules demand dancers stick to their agreed groups and avoid socialising.

What have Nicola and Katya said about leaving Strictly?

Ex-boxing champ Nicola and Katya made history as the show’s first same-sex couple.

Nicola said she was “gutted” but added: “I want to say a huge thank-you to Katya for being the best dance partner anyone could ask for.”

Katya added: “I’m devastated but I’ve made a friend for life and loved every moment of this special journey.”

Is anyone else missing from Strictly tonight?

Judge Motsi Mabuse is having to step down for two weeks and isolate due to travel rules following an emergency trip to Germany.

A spokesman confirmed: “Motsi had to make an essential journey and will be isolating for 14 days as per government guidelines.

"We look forward to welcoming her back to the studio in a few weeks.”

Insiders say bosses plan to temporarily promote dancer Anton du Beke to the judging panel after years of speculation he could step up.
