    ‘Strictly stars who refused Covid jab should be AXED’

    Ballroom dancers AJ and Curtis Pritchard have slammed the professionals who plunged Strictly into crisis by refusing to get their Covid jabs.

    The TV stars – who championed The Sun’s Jabs Army campaign – called for those who turned down the life-saving vaccine to be AXED from the BBC show’s main line-up.

    Love Islander Curtis, 25, said celebrities paired with un-vaxxed dancers should be allowed to dance with one of the many reserve pros who are double-jabbed and waiting in the wings.

    He said: “There’s always reserve professionals on there isn’t there.

    “So if they’re thinking of pulling the show I don’t think that should happen. Maybe remove the pros that aren’t getting the jab. But not get rid of them or fire them. There’s always reserves on the show.

    “So bring the ones in that have had the jab this year. Put the other ones on the reserve list.

    “They’re still part of the programme, and the show can go on and move forward.”
