 Boris Johnson tells BBC’s Dan Walker: ‘It should be Strictly Come Vaccinated’

The Prime Minister has weighed into the Strictly Come Dancing row claiming performers should get vaccinated.

Boris Johnson told the BBC’s Dan Walker, who is a contestant on the current series: “It should be Strictly Come Vaccinated.”

Speaking before he gave an interview to BBC Breakfast this morning, he asked Mr Walker whether it was dancers or celebrities who had refused the jab.

Mr Walker, who is performing on the show with his dance partner Nadia Bychkova, said he did not know which performers were unvaccinated.

Mr Johnson confessed that he did not watch the Saturday night series, which is presented by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman.

It came after he was questioned about the long running programme during a visit to the US last month in which he appeared not to have heard of it.

Stars who are refusing to get a Covid-19 vaccination are hiring lawyers in an effort to protect their identities.

Reports recently emerged that three professional dancers on the BBC One programme have rejected the jab.

In September, McFly singer Tom Fletcher and his professional dance partner Amy Dowden tested positive for coronavirus. The news has prompted questions surrounding the safety of the show’s cast and crew.

There is no suggestion that Fletcher or Dowden are among the contestants refusing the jab.

The Strictly stars are seeking legal assistance in keeping their identities private after it emerged that a Sunday newspaper was reportedly attempting to name two of the alleged vaccine-refusers.
