First look at Strictly’s re-designed Covid-safe set ahead of show’s return


STRICTLY Come Dancing’s pros take to the floor in a first look at the redesigned Covid-safe set ahead of the show’s return.

The team, who have formed their own bubble, practised a Roaring Twenties-style number.

Bosses also showed off the new socially-distanced judging panel from where Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse and Craig Revel Horwood will deliver their marks.

Bruno Tonioli does not have his own spot after it was revealed that he would miss part of this year’s series.

The Italian dancer usually flies back and forth between the UK and US versions of Strictly, but that will not be possible this year due to the pandemic.

This year’s shows will also feature a much smaller, cabaret-style audience.

The new set comes as it was revealed contestants face being kicked off the show if they test positive for Covid-19.

Executive producer Sarah James said: “Unfortunately, if you receive a positive test, that means you wouldn’t be able to continue in the competition.

According to guidelines, you would have to isolate for two weeks and that would rule you out.”
