Strictly fans call for this week's elimination to be CANCELLED after Judi Love skips a week due to Covid

STRICTLY Come Dancing fans have called for the elimination this week to be cancelled after Judi Love was forced to pull out of this weekend's show having tested positive for Covid-19.

The 41-year-old Loose Women favourite will get a bye to next week's Halloween episode, provided she recovers in time.

A Strictly spokesperson said: "Judi Love has tested positive for Covid-19 and is now self-isolating following the latest government guidelines.

"While Judi and Graziano will not be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this weekend, Strictly Come Dancing protocols mean that all being well, they will return the following week.”

In light of Judi's health, fans of the BBC ballroom have taken to Twitter in their droves to beg the show bosses to not eliminate another star after Robert Webb was forced to leave due to his health earlier this month.

One penned: "They really should have cancelled the elimination last week. It feels inevitable that they're going to have to do it at some point."

"The best thing to do now is to announce it well in advance, say no one will be eliminated in what would have been Blackpool week," they added. "So everyone knows where they stand."

"This week's vote off totally should just be cancelled," another penned.

The comments come after Judi landed in the dance-off two weeks in a row, with the judges opting to save her both times.

On Sunday, Greg Wise was eliminated from the competition instead, and the week before that Katie McGlynn was given her matching orders.

Judi is the second star to have to miss a week due to Covid this year, with McFly's Tom Fletcher previously having to step back.

However, after testing negative the following week he was able to return to the competition – with Strictly protocol allowing each contestant to miss one week if necessary.

Last weekend, Ugo Monye was absent after a back injury – but hopes to be on the dancefloor again on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Robert Webb was forced to drop out of the competition entirely due to a historic heart problem, having undergone open heart surgery in 2019.

Despite landing in the dance-off twice, Judi has been incredibly popular with viewers – and broke down in tears as she dedicated her emotional dance to her late parents at the weekend.

She previously left viewers in stitches when she TWERKED to Sean Paul – with the rapper even sending in a video message to give the star his seal of approval.
