Strictly Come Dancing’s Robert Webb has been forced to quit the BBC One show, with many fans wondering if he’ll be replaced.
The Peep Show star, who had open heart surgery two years ago, said he was advised by a doctor to leave the competition after he had ‘begun to feel symptoms’ in rehearsals.
‘I’m extremely sorry to have to announce that I’m withdrawing from Strictly Come Dancing due to ill health,’ Robert announced, before going on to thank his professional dancer Dianne Buswell.
‘I leave knowing that Strictly viewers are in very safe hands and I’ll be cheering for my brother and sister contestants all the way to Christmas,’ he added.
So, what’s the likelihood that an eliminated celebrity will return to Strictly to fill Robert’s place?

Robert Webb will not be replaced on Strictly Come Dancing, with an official BBC spokesperson telling Metro.co.uk that the series will continue as normal on Saturday.
‘The show will go ahead as normal this weekend just like when contestants have had to leave the show in previous series,’ they said.
Will Robert Webb return to Strictly Come Dancing 2021?
It’s currently unclear whether Robert will return to Strictly Come Dancing in future series, with the BBC saying they couldn’t comment on a potential comeback.
Last year, Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing returned to the show after he tore a ligament before the 2019 series even started and had to pull out.
He had been partnered with professional Oti Mabuse, who went on to win the competition with Jamie’s replacement, Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher.
