James Jordan slams 'selfish' Strictly Come Dancing pros who refuse Covid vaccine

James Jordan has slammed the Strictly Come Dancing professionals who have reportedly chosen not to have the Covid vaccine.

It’s been claimed that three dancers taking part in the 2021 series have not been jabbed and certain celebrities don’t want to dance with them.

Speaking to Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday, James argued that the professionals are “selfish”.

“I definitely believe they don’t deserve their place on the show,” the former Strictly pro said.

“I don’t know anybody who can’t have the jab because of health reasons.”

However, Kristina Rihanoff didn’t agree with him and said she thinks the story is made up.

“I don’t believe this story is true,” she said, speaking live from Northampton.

“I agree with all the points by the way, at the end of the day they should have checked everyone’s vaccination status.”

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.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
