Strictly's Katie McGlynn in Covid scare after show is SHUT DOWN as best friend tests positive just days after seeing her
KATIE McGlynn was caught up in a Covid scare last week when her best friend tested positive – just days after seeing her.
The 28-year-old enjoyed a series of nights out with Lee Bennett before he realised he was unwell and was forced to isolate.
The news comes as the whole show has been shut down after pro dancer Nadiya Bychkova caught Covid.
A source told The Sun: “Katie and Lee are joined at the hip and had been out just days before his positive test result.
“She was gutted when she found out he had Covid. Of course she was really worried about him, but she knew it could put her place on the show in jeopardy.
“She took a test and has been given the all clear – but it was a shock amid the chaos of the show just days before they had to shut down.”
Yesterday The Sun told how the cast and crew are currently isolating for ten days after Nadiya fell ill in the first week of filming preparations.
Despite the majority of pros and celebs being double jabbed, there are now fears of further cases.
Ukranian-Slovenian stunner Nadiya, 31, has previously been partnered with celebs David James, Lee Ryan and Davood Ghadami. This is not the first time Strictly has faced coronavirus crises'.
Despite all pros and celebs being made to isolate for a fortnight prior to filming, and being made to test twice weekly, boxer Nicola Adams and her partner Katya Jones were forced to leave the show after the Russian tested positive.
Singer HRVY also caught the virus days before the launch show aired.
