Kelvin Fletcher: Strictly bittersweet because of Jamie Laing's injury

Their split came almost a year after Katya was pictured kissing her former Strictly dance partner Seann Walsh, although they did not cite the comedian in their reasons for the break-up.

The actor is for the time being in Rome with his significant other and chums, but said he would be returning dwelling on Monday to originate up rehearsals with his Strictly partner Oti Mabuse.

The announcement came after celebrities had been paired with the professional dancers on last night's launch show.

Meanwhile, Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will be back to host.

'I can confirm there will be a replacement and I'll find out on Sunday who that is.

Kelvin Fletcher, best-known for playing the role of Andy Sugden from 1996 to 2016 on ITV soap Emmerdale, has been announced as a new celebrity contestant.

She is reported to have told The Sun: "I really need to be fair and she'll get what everybody else is getting".

Names that came up this year - but who didn't end up signing on the dotted line - are football manager Sam Allerdyce, Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffat and TV personality Vogue Williams.

Kelvin Fletcher has said being on Strictly is "a dream come true", but that it is also "bittersweet" because it has come around as a result of Jamie Laing's injury.

Days later the star was snapped hobbling around on crutches with his foot in a protective moon boot as the news of his injury came to light.

Earlier this week, BBC confirmed that Jamie was no longer able to take part in the dancing competition.

"When you're in Corrie they're not going to let you. they won't let you do it".

He said: 'Hello everyone, I just wanted to give a quick update because it's been released now.

Pasha said: "I've had 8 fantastic years, full of wonderful memories, thanks to the incredible partners, professionals and myriad of behind the scenes teams who all work to make Strictly the awesome production that it is. I would like to wish the lovely couples all the very best and hope they enjoy their time on the show to the fullest".

Another commented that they could poach someone from another reality TV show: "Isn't the obvious answer to replace him with Jamie from Bake Off?".

The long-time Strictly Come Dancing fan was the fifth celebrity revealed to be taking part in this year's contest, which begins tonight (Saturday) on BBC One. "We all wish him a full and speedy recovery".
