STRICTLY Come Dancing star Ugo Monye has revealed he will be taking a week out from the BBC dancing competition.
The retired rugby union player took to Twitter to reveal to fans that he was suffering from “back problems” that would mean stepping back from Saturday night’s show.
The shock comes just a day after Robert Webb announced he is QUITTING Strictly just three weeks in due to poor health.
The comedian and his dancing partner Diane Buswell have released a statement this evening confirming their departure – explaining that it was due to ill health following major heart surgery.

SARA’S PURPLE REIGN
Do you see how fierce she was tonight.
The judges are loving Sara even as much as the viewers.
Anton really lapping up his judging role too. Check him out!
Fans are still gushing about John and Johannes’ American Smooth.
RHYS TO THE TOP
At least Rhys has Craig smiling with that epic performance.
Ooh did you see Craig come at Motsi for telling him off for being harsh to John and Johannes.
Do you see how flawless these two are?
Surely John is heading for the finals… fans are going mad for them.
John and Johannes dancing to George Michael and Aretha Franklin ‘I knew you were waiting.’
They’re doing a lift too – like in Dirty Dancing!
Alright, getting carried away now.
GOT THE FEAR
Aww, poor Greg.
Used to starring on the world stage, but got ‘the nerves’ for Strictly.
FANS ARE SPLIT
“Greg wise looks like the drunk uncle at a wedding,” one Tweeted.
Craig’s back in full force too.
Greg is surely the new Judi Love bringing on the entertainment.
SHAKING HIS MARACAS
Did you see Greg shaking his booty like Beyonce?
He’s getting well into it, isn’t he!?
Hold on.. Why is Nikita crying to Tilly’s nan’s message?
Great scores too, three 9s!
BEST DANCE OF THE SEASON
According to Anton. Well done Tilly.
Craig’s not sure though….
Still one thing fans are sure of, and that’s the chemistry between Nikita and Tilly.
Tilly’s not playing.
Look at the chemistry.
NO STRICTLY CURSE
For Tom anyway!
Do you see how close Tom’s wife Giovanna is with his pro partner Amy?
Wow. Craig said Tom’s ballroom was ‘very good.’
Think he’s forgotten to take his Mr Nasty medicine.
Have you seen those cute videos Tom has been posting of his kids dancing with his pro partner Amy ahead of their foxtrot tonight?
They need their own cameo, surely.
CHEMISTRY BETWEEN THOSE TWO
Fans think Rose and Giovanni are sizzling.
One Tweeted: “Craig absolutely correct, these two are hot together.”
Anyone else getting Christmas tree vibes from Rose’s skirt?
ROSE AN ICON
Fans are loving seeing her friends on the VT.
She’s looking foxy for her cha cha cha too.
Anyone else spot those stolen glances between Tilly and Nikita?
LADY IN RED
OO-er Tess. Looking fabulous.
Glad to see Claudia ditched the cycling shorts from last week and is now back to her super-glam best in black lace.
Wonder if we can spot the chemistry between AJ and her partner tonight.
And we’re on!
Let’s see what this talented bunch have in store for us tonight.
It’s Hammer time!
LOVE FOR JUDI
Looks like Strictly fans are on the edge of their seats to see what the Loose Woman will perform tonight.
One Tweeted: “@1Judilove waiting for 7.10pm #StrictlyComeDancing with @1Judilove and @GrazianoDiPrima.”
Another cheered: “#strictlycomedancing Gwaan @1Judilove remember you born with riddim”
