Strictly Come Dancing’s Kym Marsh and Graziano Di Prima will be back ‘stronger’

Graziano Di Prima has promised he and Kym Marsh will return to the ballroom floor ‘stronger than before’ after they were forced to miss Strictly Come Dancing this week.

Kym tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this week, meaning the couple were forced to drop out of the upcoming live show.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the BBC said: ‘Kym Marsh has tested positive for Covid-19. As a result, Kym and Graziano will not be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this weekend.’

They added that the guidance surrounding positive coronavirus cases means that if Kym is negative by the following week, she should be able to come back.

‘Strictly Come Dancing protocols mean that all being well, they will return the following week,’ they said.

And now Graziano has promised they’ll be stronger than before, as he took to his Instagram stories to write: ‘We will be back.. Stronger than before’ along with a picture of the pair dancing the Paso Doble and a clip of Sia’s Unstoppable.

Bruno Tonioli ‘to make surprise return to Strictly Come Dancing’

Bruno Tonioli is to make a surprise return to Strictly Come Dancing later this year.

The former judge will make a comeback on the BBC One series for the 2022 Christmas special.

However he won’t be on the panel, instead Bruno is set to entertain audiences with a one-off music performance.

This year, several of the previous restrictions put in place on Strictly as a result of the pandemic were removed, including plastic barriers between the judges and the absence of a studio audience.

After their performance last Saturday during the iconic return to Blackpool, Graziano and Kym landed  the bottom of the leaderboard with a score of 33 out of a possible 40, but they managed to avoid the dance-off.

Instead, Tyler West and Dianne Buswell landed in the bottom two opposite Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu, with the former pair being the chosen couple to be sent home by the judges.

After finding out they’d made it through past Blackpool week, Kym and Graziano shared a joint post on Instagram with a caption that read: ‘We are through week 10!!

‘We are on cloud 9, THANK YOU THANK you so much!! We are living a dream with open eyes!! Much love to you all!! keep supporting us please and.. KEEP DANCING.’
