Just saw on BBC strictly twitter account that Will has decided to leave the show due to personal reasons. Wonder what happened there. Thought he was enjoying the experience.

i just read this too on the strictly site
Sadly due to personal reasons Will Young is leaving #Strictly. The show fully respects his decision and wishes him all the best for the future. Read more on this story here bbc.in/2dtKRT6

Will has some problems with depression and stuff and a reputation for being a bit hit  and miss at times - maybe he had enough??  or expected better marks than he got ??

I don't anything about Will at all, but would have thought (with having problems in the family with depression etc, and studying mental health last year..) it would have been a good thing to keep him going in this, - maybe it was just too much though (as it was in the public eye).
Who knows, I don't know him at all , and never saw him on the talent show he won (ITV?) but maybe he is a very sensitive person, maybe he couldn't handle the intense spotlight and scrutiny that comes with this show, plus any personal criticism, in which case not the place for him (imo).

btw not related, but just saw Ed Balls on LW today, he is coming across as a 'human being' - very personable. It's funny(?) how different politicians are when not in their day job.

yes feel a bit sorry for Karen (and not a Karen fan)
I'm sure the more they (BBC) tried to convince him to stay, made it worse.
This series having a bit of a rocky start you could say

How sad for Will & Karen. Their Jai Ho routine was amazing.
I felt Will was just getting into his stride this year.

Wish him well. Hope he can resolve his problems.

Poor Will (and Karen) - he seemed to be enjoying himself - I wonder why he's done this?

I can't remember the last time someone withdrew - would it be John Sargent?
