It has not been confirmed if Craig will be replaced by another judge for Saturday’s episode. 

If not, then the remaining celebrity contestants would be given a score out of 30 rather than the usual 40. 

Craig, who is on the panel with Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke, is the first judge to have to pull out of the show due to a positive test.  

Celebrity contestants Tom Fletcher and Judi Love both tested positive for Covid on this year’s series and were allowed to return to the competition after taking one week off.
