Carl Froch and Rachael Cordingley have both decided to leave the competition after Carl sprained his lower back during last Saturday's live show.
An ITV spokesman said: "Whilst performing a lift during Saturday's live Stepping Out, Carl Froch sprained his lower back. After subsequent consultations with his physiotherapist, he has reluctantly decided to leave the competition".
Carl said: "I'm gutted that Rachael and I have to leave but I have to put my boxing career first. We've both enjoyed every minute of Stepping Out and loved dancing and spending time with each other. Even though we won't be competing on Saturday we will be in the studio cheering everyone on".
The wife swap twist will still continue within this week's live show. The couples paired are:
Brian McFadden & Jackie Llewelyn Bowen
Oritsé Williams & Vogue McFadden
Laurence Llewelyn Bowen & AJ Azari
Tune in on Saturday at 6.45pm to see how they get on!
