In the 2021 series, Hamish and Yebin were injured, with Hamish (who partnered with Faye Brookes) injuring his hand while putting on his sock, damaging his tendon.
While Yebin suffered a leg injury in a freak accident with partner Graham Bell who saw her accidentally fall on his blade and slice off his leg, with the star needing surgery after his tendons were exposed.
While it is not known whether injuries played a role in their outings, the main reason for her absence could be due to the fact that she gave birth to her second child last week.
