The coronavirus outbreak has forced the Strictly Come Dancing tour with the Professionals to be postponed until 2021.
One of Strictly Come Dancing’s dancers Luba Mushtuk addressed the disappointing news today.
Sharing it with her followers on Twitter, she said: “On a positive note , it’s not cancelled and it’s still going to happen !
“We just all have to wait a little longer !!!
The professional continued: “Strictly Come Dancing – The Professionals 2020 UK Tour now scheduled for May and June of 2021!!!
“Looking forward to see you all then !!!”
The dance show was set to launch May 9 at the London Palladium in the capital city, and the professional dancers have been training and planning for it for months.
“In the meantime please stay at home, look after yourselves and keeeeeeep dancing!” the post added.
Fans were undoubtedly devastated but were supportive of the pros who have worked so hard on the new show.
