Strictly Come Dancing Update Professionals Matthew Cutler and Lilia Kopylova Quit Show

More Professionals Quit Strictly Come Dancing

Lilia Kopylova and Matthew Cutler have both confirmed they are leaving Strictly Come Dancing. The pro dancers had been axed from their previous roles as partners to the celebs, and asked to perform as a professional dance troupe alongside Darren Bennett, Ian Waite and Brian Fortuna, who has also quit the show. While rumours about the celeb lineup continue, Matthew said: "I've absolutely loved my time on Strictly, and now is a good time to focus on developing new areas of my career. I'm excited about having more time to commit to new projects and, of course, still having a hand in Strictly without all the training!" Lilia explained she's "looking forward to new opportunities ahead" and added: "Of course I will be there to support Darren and all of my fellow professionals". Are you sad to see them go?
