Strictly Come Dancing's Chizzy Akudolu is in hot water after misplacing her passport whilst travelling to Punta Cana to attend her brother’s wedding. Upon realising her loss and being sent back to the UK, the actress took to Twitter to desperately ask her fans for help.

"Guys, I need a favour. Need a Retweet like I've never needed one before! I travelled to Punta Cana airport yesterday and either lost my passport there or at Gatwick. Got immediately sent back home so if anyone finds it, please, please get in touch. Many thanks. PLEASE RETWEET," she told her fans.

The star, who was partnered with Pasha Kovalev during the 2017 series, then explained that the reason for her travel was very important. "Thanks to all who have retweeted. My brother gets married tomorrow so I’m off to throw myself at the mercy of @HM_Passport," she wrote.
