Amy and Tom have both shared statements on Instagram, with Tom apologising to fans as he has had to pull out of McFly shows while Amy let viewers know how she’s doing and their plans for a return.
Amy wrote: “Unfortunately @tomfletcher and I have tested positive for Covid-19. I’m not suffering any symptoms but am now isolating at home.
“I have no doubt that over the next 10 days my mind will be going crazy with choreography ideas ready to get back on the strictly dance floor for the live show in week 3!
“Thank you for all of the support and good luck to all of the couples this week. I will be cheering you all on.”
Tom replied to Amy’s post: “Rest up partner. We’ve got to pull something special out of the bag for week 3.”
Tom and Amy had placed 12th out of a total of 15 couples in the series first live show, scoring a 21 out of 40.
No couples were eliminated last weekend but the scores received will carry into week two, when one pair will be eliminated. Tom and Amy will miss the first elimination episode of the series.
Their fellow Strictly stars were quick to offer them well wishes as they went go into isolation, with Gorka Marquez writing on Amy’s post: "All the love to you and @tomfletcher. You guys will be back soon."
Sara Davies added that she's “gutted we won’t see you both”.
