Kym, 46, was also terrified for her dad who was rushed into hospital.

Appearing on Morning Live, Kym said: “Start of the week I came down with Covid. That was rubbish. Thankfully I’m testing negative now.”

She will return to rehearsals today in preparation of being back on Strictly at the weekend.

“I can’t wait to see you,” Kym’s dance partner Graziano Di Prima, 28.

“We take for granted that we spend so much time together.

“Being apart for a week has been strange. It’s crazy – but today, I’m going to meet her again.”

Seven of the show’s crew tested positive for Covid after Kym went down with the virus following a cast and staff beano at the end of the Blackpool special.

Kym was given a free pass through to next week after getting sick.

Last night Ellie Taylor was voted off the how after landing in the bottom two with Fleur East.

Despite the first perfect 40 of the series last week, Fleur ended up in the dance-off for the third time.

A Strictly spokesman said: “The health and wellbeing of all involved in Strictly is production’s absolute priority.

“We have out own Covid protocols in place and continue to monitor government guidelines.”
