The Strictly Come Dancing covid crisis is becoming more and more chaotic after a third professional dancer is reportedly refusing to get the Covid jab.

Last week, reports emerged that two pro dancers refused to get the Covid jab – meaning that some celebs didn’t want to be paired with them but now fresh claims say that there is another unvaccinated dancer in the mix.

The three professionals are believed to be the only ones out of 18 who are not vaccinated this series.

The Sun report that the third professional, who is unnamed, is paired with a celeb and others on Strictly know they have refused to receive a vaccine.

A source told the outlet: “Producers are dreading an outbreak of Covid on the new series, which is a crucial part of the autumn schedule.

“They are taking every possible precaution to make the set as safe as possible, particularly as the studio audience is returning.”

Last Friday, ahead of Strictly launching on Saturday evening, it was claimed that bosses are worried that the show could be ruined if there is an outbreak of coronavirus on the show.

It comes just after producers were left fretting after a pro was rushed to isolation after testing positive for the virus earlier this week. It is likely that the celeb will be partnered with another dancer.

The insider said: “The dancers who won’t get vaccinated have been a topic of conversation among cast and crew for weeks — even before the positive test.

“There were vocal protests from celebrities that they didn’t want to be paired with them.

“It’s a headache for bosses but employers cannot force workers to get jabbed.”

They added that their stance has annoyed other pros, who got jabbed for the good of the show.
