Strictly Come Dancing’s Ugo Monye pulls out of live show due to injury

Strictly Come Dancing's Ugo Monye has had to pull out of the live show this weekend due to an injury.

Ugo, who is partnered up with Oti Mabuse, announced the news in a statement on Thursday saying they will both miss Saturday’s episode.

He wrote: "Unfortunately I’m not going to be able to dance this weekend on the show.

"I have a history of back problems which has always been managed under the guidance of medical professionals. Unfortunately this has been causing me some unwanted problems this week!"

"I have been advised by medical professionals and with huge support from Strictly to get some treatment & rest to ensure that I can get myself back to full capacity & fighting fit for next week.

"Gutted Oti & I won’t be dancing this weekend but wishing all the other contestants the best of luck & will be cheering them on from home!"

This comes just one day after fellow contestant Robert Webb quit the show due to ill health.

Dan Walker showed support for Ugo and tweeted: "Really sorry to hear that Ugo. Take care of yourself… and that back of yours. If I’m still here… I’ll see you next week."
