STRICTLY Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas fears she’s caught coronavirus in yet another blow to the 2020 series.
The 59-year-old has revealed she is awaiting test results as she accepts the victory of the BBC’s BAFTA show last night.
Speaking from the virtual winners room at the BAFTA TV Awards last night, Shirley said, “I broke my foot so it’s healing, I haven’t been so good with a cough. I had a temperature and this and that.
“So I just took the Covid test today, so I have to wait 24 hours. ”
She had to separate from her boyfriend Danny Taylor, 47, in the meantime.
Until the lockdown, they hadn’t had a good time together because his acting work sees him regularly traveling across the country to perform.
But they’ve been inseparable since March – and Shirley says their love has been proven to last forever.
He was even able to help Shirley control her anxiety by structuring their day into two-hour blocks of exercise, housework, gardening and cooking.
The 5-foot-2 dancer put on 20 pounds and went from a tiny size six to a more curvy size ten in 12 weeks.
She strives to put her figure back alongside Danny for his Strictly comeback.
The dance show has been given the green light to return amid coronavirus filming restrictions, but viewers should be prepared for a host of changes.
“There are going to be so many new rules and regulations,” she told The Sun.
