PHILIP Schofield has sparked anger by grilling dancer Gorka Marquez on the covid vaccine row engulfing the show.
The This Morning host asked Gorka whether he felt it was important for the pros to be vaccinated in order to take part – but Gorka instead played down his worries and avoided being drawn on the issue.
The Sun exclusively revealed that three pros had not been vaccinated, sparking a row that has seen former Strictly stars and Prime Minister Boris Johnson wade in and threaten to bring the BBC show to its knees.
There is concern among the show’s other pro dancers and celebrities as well as make-up artists, camera operators, costume staff, and other departments who work closely with the performers.
