Iconic week in the show's calendar is cancelled.
To minimise the exposure of Coronavirus, Strictly Come Dancing will not be coming from Blackpool at any point this series.
The BBC spokeswoman said: "Blackpool is a milestone moment in every series of Strictly that our audience, our celebs and professional dancers look forward to. Whilst we'll be unable to physically go to Blackpool this series, we'll still be celebrating this iconic venue and bringing it to life from our studio in Elstree."
Strictly Come Dancing is expected to start on Saturday 17th October on BBC One.
Strictly: The Best Of... begins on Saturday 19th September on BBC One.
