News just in... Aliona Vilani suffered a hairline fracture to her ankle today whilst training with partner Johnny Ball, putting her prospects for dancing in the first Strictly live show on 5th October on hold.

We'll keep you posted on developments as they happen... in the meantime let’s all wish Aliona a speedy recovery.
