Strictly Come Dancing: Week 5 (S19EP9 BBC One Sat 23 Oct 2021)



Join Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman live from the Strictly Ballroom as our remaining couples take to the floor with more brand new and spectacular routines.

So far this series, the Strictly leader board has been awash with high scores, and with a place at next week’s Halloween Special up for grabs you can expect more fierce competition tonight. Our celebrities will be pulling out all the stops to impress both the judges and you at home.

Judi Love and dancing partner Graziano Di Prima will not take part in this week’s show because Love has tested positive for coronavirus. The Loose Women host will get a bye putting her through to next week’s show. A spokesperson for the show 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.” Judi is the second celebrity, after Tom Fletcher of McFly, to test positive.
