Strictly’s Will Bayley could quit show tomorrow amid ‘slim chance’ of return

Will Bayley could reportedly quit Strictly Come Dancing tomorrow after his "freak" knee injury is failing to heal.

BBC sources have claimed that the Paralympian's chances of performing are "less than slim" and that a decision will likely be made tomorrow.

This also comes as a number of other pros suffer injuries, including Katya and Neil Jones.

Alex Scott has been training with Kevin Clifton this week after dancing with him Saturday, in lieu of pro Neil.

A source told The Sun : "Will is devastated as he’s put everything into the series and a freak injury looks like it may well be the end of the road for him.


"He’s got a final consultation today and that could be it."

They also claimed that Will had already had a number of appointments with physios and doctors but the longer he is out of training the less likely it is that he will return.

Will and Janette were given a bye last Saturday after he was unable to perform, but Strictly rules dictate that each couple are only allowed one free pass in the competition due to injury or illness.

The insider added: "There are quite a few on the treatment table at the moment so producers are hoping there are some quick recoveries, particularly with Katya and Neil.

"In an ideal world they will both be able to shake off their knocks in time for the weekend so that Alex and Mike are not left needing stand-in professionals.”

Mirror TV has reached out to the BBC for comment.

*Strictly returns this Saturday at 7pm on BBC One
