Hal­loween is prime time for in­juries — and I should know

Scottish Daily Mail - - Femail Opinion -

In­jURIES strike around the Hal­loween episode of Strictly every year. By this stage in the sea­son, am­bi­tions are keener, bod­ies fit­ter and every­one feels they can push harder. Un­for­tu­nately, peo­ple get hurt.

Poor Will Bay­ley (pic­tured) jumped from a ta­ble and his knee ended up so dam­aged, he’s had to leave the show.

I got in­jured ahead of the Hal­loween show my­self when I took part — an am­bi­tious lift put my back into spasm. I des­per­ately wanted to do the lifts, which are even harder than they look: it isn’t all about the man do­ing the lift­ing, the woman has to lean into it to make it work. the pain was so bad I could barely move. Fel­low con­tes­tant Abbey Clancy saved the day: by co­in­ci­dence, the Le­ices­ter City foot­ball team were stay­ing at our ho­tel. Abbey, whose hus­band is foot­baller Peter Crouch, just si­dled up to their physio and asked him to fix my dam­aged spine. A few painful cracks later, I felt trans­formed. What a pity Abbey and Peter couldn’t come to Will Bay­ley’s res­cue, too. Pic­ture: BBC
