Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood is to miss this Saturday's live Musicals Week show after he tested positive for Covid-19.

According to a statement from the show, "Craig Revel Horwood has tested positive for Covid-19 and is now self-isolating following the latest government guidelines.

"While Craig will not be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this weekend, all being well he will return the following week."

Reacting to the announcement during the latest edition of Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two, host Rylan Clark-Neal said: "We are sending you all our love and we can’t wait to see you really soon."

Revel Horwood is the fourth of this year’s Strictly team to miss a week of live shows after testing positive for Covid.

McFly singer Tom Fletcher and his professional partner Amy Dowden were the first, with comedian Judi Love also contracting coronavirus several weeks later.

They all returned to the show after a week’s absence.

Seven couples are left in this year’s competition, following Sara Davies’ elimination over the weekend.

The Dragons’ Den panellist landed in the bottom two alongside Tilly Ramsay, marking the social media star’s second time in the dance-off.

Following her elimination, she said: "I had no idea any of this was in me. It’s been a life changing experience and one I’ve loved every second of."

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday night on BBC One.
