Strictly Come Dancing 2021 is in full swing, and despite some recent sad news that means some contestants will not be performing in week 4, we still have a great line-up of songs and dances.

This week Robert Webb confirmed he was dropping out of the series meaning that he and partner Dianne Buswell will no longer be competing for the coveted glitterball trophy. He revealed that this was due to health issues following heart surgery.

In addition to this, Ugo Monye has pulled out of week 4 due to an injury, so he and Oti won't be performing either. He revealed: "Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to dance this weekend on the show. I have a history of back problems which has always been managed under the guidance of medical professionals.

"Unfortunately this has been causing me some unwanted problems this week! I have been advised by medical professionals and with huge support from Strictly to get some treatment and rest to ensure that I can get myself back to full capacity and fighting fit for next week."

There are still eleven couples performing this weekend though, so let's find out what everyone will be dancing to!
