Strictly star pulls out of live Hydro show after Covid test

Strictly Come Dancing finalist John Whaite has pulled out of Glasgow shows on the live tour after testing positive for Covid.

The TV baker, who came second in the final of the BBC series last year, was due to take to the stage with partner Johannes Radebe at the OVO Hydro for two shows today and one tomorrow.

In a video filmed in his hotel room bed and shared on his Instagram story today, he said he had “a little bit of bad news”, adding: “A lateral flow this morning has come back positive so I now have to sit here in this glamorous captivity until a result of a PCR come back – and I’m hoping they come back negative because I feel fine.

“I’m triple jabbed, I had coronavirus in summer, so I’m hoping it’s just a false positive.

“But that does mean of course that I won’t be able to perform today or tonight in Glasgow, so I am very, very, very, very, very sorry if anyone was hoping to see me shaking my thing on the dance floor today because I just won’t be there shaking it.

“I’ll be in my hotel room, probably still shaking it, but that isn’t something I wish the world could see because it isn’t pretty, darling.”
