Two pro dancers on Strictly Come Dancing have refused to get the Covid jab - meaning some celebs don't want to be paired with them, it has been reported.

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

A source told The Sun that bosses were worried the BBC show could be ruined if there was an outbreak of coronavirus.

It comes after a pro was rushed to isolation after testing positive for the virus earlier this week. It is likely 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.

An official Strictly spokesperson said: "We do not comment on speculation of somebody’s Covid vaccination status. Strictly Come Dancing production has, and will, continue to follow strict government guidelines to ensure the safety of all on the show."

It comes during a chaotic week ahead of the launch after BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker landed in hospital after hurting his head, reports The Mirror.

The host shared a photo of himself sitting in a chair and hooked up to a blood pressure and heart monitors.

He revealed he had hit his head in training and received a CT scan, which thankfully came back all clear.

Dan also tweeted a photo of himself with a medical consultant as they both wore face masks.

The presenter wrote: "No blood on the brain but I have to rest for a few days. I’ll be a bit behind but back at next week. The NHS is amazing & I can’t tell you who my pro is but I can say she waited for hours in the car park to check I was ok. Whatever happens on TV, she has a friend for life."

He added: "Bit of head-based drama today! After whacking my noggin on the big glass window yesterday, I got sent to A & E today because I was feeling a bit wobbly."

His former colleague Louise Minchin, who quit her job on the BBC Breakfast earlier this week, tweeted: "Ouch. Sending you healing thoughts so that you get better soon. X"
