We’ve already suffered one huge Strictly absence this year.
Bruno Tonioli went AWOL on us a few weeks back, but we thought we’d seen the last of wandering stars for a while at least.
However, last night, one of Strictly’s longest- serving stars was missing and fans couldn’t believe their eyes.
Viewers had already been treated to a Tango to Firework by Katy Perry, performed by Susan Calman and her professional dance partner, Kevin Clifton.

With co- host Claudia Winkleman by her side, Tess Daly gave us the traditional introduction to the singers and band, but something was different.
Instead of regular guest vocalist Hayley Sanderson, a singer called Tori stood next to regular singer Lance Ellington.
The change did not go unnoticed by viewers either, and some were quick to voice their shock on social media.
As she went through the new- look line- up, Tess had given no explanation for Hayley’s absence from the evening’s entertainment.
However, with fans beginning to grumble, the singer herself took to Twitter to explain.
