Boris Johnson waded into the Strictly Come Dancing jabs controversy after claims three professional dancers had refused COVID vaccines.
Questioned about the row, the Prime Minister told GB News that everyone should take their jabs and that he was saying it, not in a bullying way but just because he believed it was the best thing to do.
BBC bosses were repeatedly battling to save the show after celebrities were left fearing a backstage outbreak, and a source claimed one star, a household name, told friends that they should be protected, after learning their professional partner hadn’t had the jab.
A source told a newspaper outlet the celebrity was previously oblivious their professional partner hadn’t been jabbed and was surprised by BBC bosses failure to ensure their safety despite harsh COVID measures.
They said that they just couldn’t believe that their partner would not have the jab and that they believed that they’d be protected, so to find that their partner hadn’t had a single jab was extremely worrying and that the pair had previously spent tens of hours practising together, and there was a lot of anger and several questions to be asked.
It comes as the latest data revealed that Britain’s COVID crisis seems to be rising again as daily cases increased week on week for the fourth day running amid concerns of a delayed back to school surge.
Department of Health bosses posted 31,564 new coronavirus infections, up 18.5 per cent on the 26,628 recorded last Tuesday.
Cases had been falling for the nine days before Saturday, suggesting the United Kingdom may finally be seeing the effect of the return to schools in England, Wales and Northern Ireland at the start of the month. Experts warned that classroom reopening would cause a sharp uptick in infections.
Mortality also rose today, with the number of people dying within 28 days of testing positive for the virus rising to 203. This was up 9.7 per cent of last Tuesday’s 185.
The news is further proof of the effectiveness of the jabs in averting severe cases, with more than 65 per cent of the UK population now having been vaccinated.
The BBC has been keen to play down the Strictly dispute and maintains it’s based on speculation.
A spokesperson told a newspaper outlet that they don’t comment on speculation of COVID vaccination status and that the Strictly Come Dancing production has, and will, proceed to follow stringent government guidelines to ensure the safety of all on the show.
No one really wanted to take the jab, but I guess it’s the best thing to do, to protect yourself and those around you, but it also appears that several people believe it’s a complete load of BS.
And there is a huge proportion of the jabbed that are becoming holier than thou about it, telling people that they’re selfish for not being jabbed, but remember you can still catch it and pass it on.
It’s up to the person to determine whether they want the jab or not. You have it or you don’t, but other people can’t choose for you, but then you have to consider that Boris Johnson has become a glorified salesperson for big pharma masquerading as Prime Minister, and these dangerous experimental drugs are causing numerous severe adverse reactions including myocarditis, stroke and death according to the government’s own Yellowcard reporting system, and where there’s risk, there must also be a choice.
