It is nearly the Strictly Come Dancing 2023 Halloween special and all the celebrities and their partners have been busy preparing for their dances all week. However, one star who is a cause for concern is Adam Thomas. He did not appear on Fridays spin-off show ‘It Takes Two’ as he was not feeling well. Host Fleur East revealed that “Unfortunately Adam’s feeling a little under the weather. But please welcome the lovely Luba!”

Luba told Fleur East that “It’s so strange to be here by myself,” and then went on to say that “He (Adam) is resting and getting ready for tomorrow night so everything will be fine!!” This is not the first time that the Waterloo Road star has fallen ill and revealed on Instagram that he was taking Berocca and coffee to feel well and said: “Of course all weeks to be poorly!”

Strictly Come Dancing fans will of course be wishing Adam well and hoping to see him on Saturday night’s Halloween special as the show has of course been rocked by the departure of Amanda Abbington who revealed that she had decided to leave for ‘medical reasons.’ Alongside a photograph of her dancing shoes, Amanda Abbington said on her Instagram that “It is with deepest regret that I had to leave Strictly. I did not come to his decision easily or lightly, but for personal reasons I am unable to continue.”
