'Strictly Come Dancing': Darcey Bussell 'Horrified' At Will Young Exit

'It's horrifying to think someone who could have made the final is gone.'

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judge Darcey Bussell has spoken about Will Young’s shock exit from the show, admitting she was “horrified” to learn about his departure.

Earlier this week, Will announced that he was stepping down from ‘Strictly’ after three weeks of live shows, citing “personal reasons” for his decision.

Following speculation about the reasons for his decision to leave ‘Strictly’, Will attempted to downplay the furore in a text message sent to Chris Evans’ Radio 2 breakfast show.

He insisted: “Here’s the thing. I’m absolutely dandy, thanks. It’s all very undramatic, really.

“I’ve done my statement and others can say what they want to say. I never read what they say anyway.”

The remaining 12 ‘Strictly’ couples will take to the dancefloor once again in Saturday’s (15 October) live show, kicking off at 6.30pm on BBC One.
