In­jured Ruth out of dance re­hearsal

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - NEWS -

Strictly Come Danc­ing hope­ful Ruth Langs­ford is fear­ing for her per­for­mance this week­end af­ter in­jur­ing her­self barely a day be­fore she is due to re­turn to the stage.

The Loose Women pan­el­list said she was forced to miss yes­ter­day’s re­hearsal af­ter pulling her ham­string, but was “pretty sure” she would be able to com­pete on Satur­day.

With just hours to go be­fore week two of the BBC One com­pe­ti­tion kicks off – and where she plans to per­form a fast-paced Charleston with part­ner An­ton Du Beke – she up­dated her fol­low­ers in a Twitter video posted yes­ter­day.

The 57-year-old said: “Just be­fore I went down (to the re­hearsal stu­dio) I was in my dress­ing room and I thought, ‘I’ll just walk through my steps and fa­mil­iarise my­self and make sure I know the rou­tine,’ and I kicked my leg out, and I’ve pulled a ham­string.

“So I had to go to the physio, she wouldn’t let me do the re­hearsal this af­ter­noon, she’s told me I’ve got to ice it.”

Langs­ford showed her Twitter fol­low­ers how she has been in­structed to keep her leg in ice, have a hot bath and take ibupro­fen.
