Strictly Come Dancing star Motsi Mabuse won't be on the show for a few weeks, as she has had to return to Germany and, as a result, self-isolate for 14 days.

She posted on Instagram that her dance school in Germany, which she runs with her husband Evgenij Voznyuk, was almost broken into and she has returned to the country to help local police.

Her post, translated, reads: "Unfortunately, we don't have good news. Someone tried to break into our school. We're working together with the police, in order to solve this crime.

"We know that we were targeted deliberately, and we'll be improving the security in our school, so that this won't happen again. All the best, Evgenij and Motsi."

This week has also seen Nicola Adams and her professional dance partner Katya Jones step away from the show due to the latter testing positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). Although Nicola herself has tested negative, she will not be allowed to continue to compete.

Katya thanked fans for their support, stating: "I have no symptoms at all, I'm just isolating, and gutted – heartbroken is not even... I can't even describe my feelings. But we're so happy that we were able to do this, hopefully, it's the start of something bigger and again, just thank you so much to everybody who has supported us on the competition and now.

"I've seen all your messages, I might not have answered to everybody, but I'm going through them and I've seen them all."

Sadly for Nicola, the BBC have confirmed that she won't be able to compete next year as she'd have a competitive advantage.

Strictly Come Dancing continues this Saturday (November 14) on BBC One. Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two, hosted by Zoe Ball and Rylan Clark-Neal, airs Mondays through Fridays at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
