Tom Fletcher and his Strictly Come Dancing partner Amy Dowden have tested positive for Covid.

The McFly singer had been due to perform with his band in Glasgow tonight but he was forced to pull out due to feeling unwell.

A tweet on the band's official account said: "Unfortunately Tom is unwell and won't be onstage with us tonight in Glasgow. He sends huge and heartfelt apologies to all the fans he won’t see tonight.

"The show will still be going ahead, we’re looking forward to seeing you all and need you guys to sing extra loud for us tonight."

It was later confirmed he and his professional dancing partner Amy had both tested positive.

"Further to our last message we can now confirm that Tom has tested positive for Covid-19," McFly said.

"He is now self isolating and following the latest government guidelines. Please join us in wishing him a speedy recovery."

The BBC then confirmed that the pair wouldn't be taking part in the next Strictly live show on Saturday.

A BBC statement said: “Tom Fletcher and Amy Dowden have tested positive for Covid-19.

“The pair are now self-isolating separately following the latest Government guidelines.

“While they will both miss Saturday’s live show, Strictly Come Dancing protocols mean that, all being well, they will return the following week.”
