Strictly Come Dancing star Ugo Monye has pulled out of this weekend’s live show following issues stemming from an ongoing injury.

The rugby star, who is partnered up with Oti Mabuse, announced the news in a statement on Thursday, explaining they will both have to miss Saturday’s episode.

He wrote: ‘Unfortunately I’m not going to be able to dance this weekend on the show.

‘I have a history of back problems which has always been managed under the guidance of medical professionals. Unfortunately this has been causing me some unwanted problems this week!’

It comes just hours after Ugo’s fellow contestant Robert Webb announced he was quitting the series due to health issues.
