Strictly Come Dancing stars Pasha Kovalev, 40, Aljaž Škorjanec, 30, and Graziano Di Prima, 26, announced the 2021 dates for the Here Come The Boys tour yesterday, after this year’s schedule was cancelled due to the coronavirus.

Ballet dancer Sam Salter has since hit out about the change of line-up as he claimed he was told the 2021 dates will not be happening, and was surprised to learn he had been replaced.

Michael Dameski was also scheduled to perform with the dancers this year, but is nowhere to be seen in the latest tour update.

In a now-deleted Instagram video, he said: “The 2021 show was discussed in meetings but obviously with this year’s show being cancelled I was hoping the 2021 tour would [go ahead].

“However I was told that there was no show at all, no more Here Come the Boys at all, it was done.”

Sam went on to say he was told by a fan that the 2021 dates are still going ahead without him in it.

He added his mum also discovered her 2020 tickets are still valid for a show next year.

“I found out all that this morning and then they post that and say Sam was really sad,” he told his Instagram fans.

“I am sad, yes but how do you even know that because you haven’t asked me?”

He went on to say he was not told directly that the new shows were going ahead and said he was cropped out of the poster.

“It’s terrible form, really really disappointed but not as disappointed as I am in the producers of the show that could have handled it better,” he added.

A source has since told The Sun Sam is “furious” by the decision.

They said: “Sam’s furious about it all – it’s like they’ve declared war on him and just want to cash in with Graziano after selling tickets using Sam’s name and talent.

“He’s a professional and knows that things like this can happen in business but for them to not even have the courtesy to tell him the decision had been made is not on.”

It is unclear if Pasha and Aljaž were behind the decision of the changed line-up.

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Here Come The Boys tour, Pasha and Aljaž.

Sam has also been approached for further comment.
