ONE of Strictly Come Dancing’s three unjabbed professional dancers has performed a dramatic U-Turn and decided to have the Covid vaccination.
One of Strictly’s unjabbed pro dancers has decided to get the Covid vaccine
There was growing concern among the show’s other pro dancers and celebrities as well as make-up artists, camera operators, costume staff, and other departments who work closely with the performers.
The Sun on Sunday can reveal that the pro decided to get the jab so they can concentrate on the competition.
A TV insider said: “The pro felt that the narrative had gotten out of control and wants to bring back the focus to the competition. No-one told them they have to get jabbed but it was a decision they came to themselves and felt it was the best thing to do for everyone involved.
“It was becoming a guessing game as to who had been vaxxed and who hasn’t where as the professional dancers’ main focus is the dance floor.”
Dancers do not have to disclose whether they are vaccinated as it is a private medical matter and the BBC cannot even ask about it.
A BBC spokeswoman said: “We do not comment on speculation of somebody’s Covid vaccination status. “Strictly Come Dancing production has, and will continue, to follow strict Government guidelines to ensure the safety of all on the show.”

Strictly legend James Jordan, 43, said the trio were putting lives at risk and should be thrown off the show.
And Boris Johnson – on a trip to the US to meet President Joe Biden – even urged the three to get jabbed as soon as possible.
