Some sad news about one of our contestants, hot from the Strictly Come Dancing production office:

Unfortunately due to diagnosis of Chicken Pox, Tina O'Brien cannot participate this week. In accordance with our rules and contingency plans, Tina will be given a bye through to next week's show. If she is unable to dance next week she will have to leave the competition.

Tina says: "I am devastated. I was so looking forward to this week's show. Jared and I have spent so much time and effort on a really fantastic routine and I just couldn't wait to perform it on Saturday.

Hopefully I will bounce back quickly and be on top dancing form soon, ready to come back straight into the next routine. I will be watching them all this weekend!"

This Saturday all the other couples will dance as usual for the judges's scores and the public vote and one couple will be eliminated in the Sunday night Results Show.

Everyone here at Strictly wishes Tina a speedy recovery and we hope to see you and Jared dancing next week!
