Denise Van Outen might not be able to dance in this weekend’s Strictly shows because of an injury suffered during dance rehearsals yesterday.
Van Outen injured her neck while practising for this week’s jive. After a trip to a physio confirmed that the star had suffered mild whiplash, her professional dance partner James Jordan tweeted: “I’m actually feeling quite bad now! Was really tough on @denise_vanouten this morning.. Until her neck really went.. I’m sorry!! #feelbad”
While Van Outen tweeted last night that she was “hoping I can jive tomorrow”, it seems a night’s sleep hasn’t done the trick. This morning the star shared her worries with her Twitter followers, tweeting:
On my way to BBC. I can't move my neck, hurting so much #ouch
