The 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional dancers - were left "extremely sad" after axing their Fred Astaire tribute show, 'Remembering Fred', which was due to take place at the Pavilion Theatre in Glasgow today (11.04.18), because a blaze destroyed a nearby building.

The 34-year-old beauty wrote on Instagram: "Glasgow, we are deeply sorry that due to a fire occurring in the building next door to our venue, @RememberingTour company are unable to perform for you tonight! We are extremely sad as Glasgow is always one of our best crowds. Hope to see you next year! #SoSorry #WishWeCould#NextTime (sic)"

Aljaz, 28, admitted he was "gutted" about having to call off the performance.

He said: "We are very sorry that tonight's performance in Glasgow has been cancelled due to a fire next to the venue.The whole @RememberingTour is gutted because the Glasgow crowds are always one of the loudest! (sic)"

The blaze started on March 22 and destroyed a nightclub next to the 114-year-old Pavilion Theatre, but the surrounding buildings have been deemed unsafe for public use following the fire damage.

Theatre bosses said in a statement at the time: "After waiting to hear all day, we have just been advised by Glasgow City Council Building Control that we will be denied access to the theatre for around two months.

"After which, we will then be allowed in to ascertain the damage caused by the fire.

"Only then will we be able to carry out any works required."

The Pavilion wasn't burned by the fire but is said to have suffered massive smoke damage and ash infiltration.

Speaking this week, theatre manager Iain Gordon told the Herald Scotland newspaper: "I've been told I won't be able to gain entry for three months.

"And at the moment, the real fear is the massive repairs that will have to be carried out. All the seats are likely to need replacing, as the ash from the smoke will have seeped into the foam."
