Will Quits Strictly

Will Young suddenly announced his withdrawal from Strictly Come Dancing last night, citing "personal reasons".

The announcement came at around 7pm. Will issued a statement on his website, praising the crew, and thanking the BBC for the opportunity to take part.

Of his professional partner, Karen Clifton, he said: "I have found a creative partnership with Karen that has been the most wonderful thing to experience. I will be eternally grateful to her for her direction, talent and guiding me through three wonderful dances that I will be able to show my grandkids in years to come."

Speculation is rife in the newspapers and on social media, as Will did not give any specifics: "Unfortunately, I am leaving the show for personal reasons. I leave with joy in my heart that I have been able to take part in one of the most loved shows on British television."

Karen tweeted her good wishes to Will.
