    Under fire

    Aliaz, 31, who is currently bottom of the leaderboard with Dragon Dens' parter Sara Davies, beamed as he strolled alongside her wearing tight black jeans and a black bomber jacket.

    How much did Nina Wadia earn for appearing on Strictly?

    How much Nina is worth is currently unknown.

    Who is Nina Wadia?

    Nina Wadia is an actress best known for her role as Zainab Masood in EastEnders, though she describes herself as more of a comedy actress.

    She was born in Mumbai, India, in 1968.

    She lived with her parents, brother and sister in a small one-bedroom space that she says regularly flooded during monsoon season in the city.

    The family moved to Hong Kong when Nina was nine years old, and she later moved to the UK, where she has worked as an actor since the 1990’s.

      Fans complain of 'unfair advantage' for Judi

      Fans of the show have accused Judi of having an “unfair” advantage with partner Graziano on Saturday, following a week off from the live show.

      Writing online, one person said: “I like Judi but a bit unfair she gets to the dance she was supposed to do last week? Ugo & Tom moved on to a new dance”.

      Another tweeted: “I think it’s because Judi spent 4 days on learning her dance before going into isolation. I don’t think it’s unfair at all. She’s stronger in Latin so this could be her best week yet #Strictly”.

      A third chimed in, writing: “I’m really surprised that Judi can do her Cha Cha, when I thought if you missed a week you had to miss the week before’s dance?”

      Party time for Graziano?

      As Judi filmed her sick bed video, Graziano, 27, was seen without a mask in a busy bar in Soho, central London, and was snapped with ex-pro Robin Windsor.

      A TV insider said: “He has done nothing wrong as he is double-jabbed and had tested negative.

      “But it’s a terrible look for the show, which has strict social distancing measures in place for filming.

      “And this isn’t the first time that pros have been seen breaking social distancing, which makes it very uncomfortable for producers.”

      Graziano was in Freedom Bar, one of the biggest venues in London’s gay village.

      Sick bed

      In a new video, recorded while laying down at home, Judi has also revealed the unusual but traditional West Indian remedies she has tried in an attempt to shift the illness.

      The comedienne – who is supposed to be back in the ballroom with dance partner Graziano Di Prima this Saturday – posted the clip on Instagram, branding the virus as "Damn Rona".

      Despite feeling unwell, Judi has credited her recent dance training for helping her to feel better than she perhaps could have.

      Judi said: "I don't even know what day it is. Some kind of motivation day.

      "I just wanna say to you guys, Rona is real. I give thanks that I was doing exercise and dancing thing. I feel like I'm handling it much better than I would have if I hadn't been doing exercise and sweat."

      The crises that have thrown Strictly 2021 into chaos

      McFly singer Tom Fletcher previously pulled out for one episode when he tested positive for the virus.

      Comedian Robert Webb has also pulled out for the entire series due to a pre-existing heart condition.

      Previously Ugo Monye was absent after a back injury – but has since been eliminated.

      This means there will be three – not four – couples in the final and there are fears this could be further exacerbated if Judi is a no-show.

      Fans have even called for the eliminations to be cancelled in order to level things out.
