Michelle's hurt ankle - will she be able to dance on Saturday?
Hey everyone - some worrying news has come through from Team Brechelle. Although Brendan has returned safely from New Zealand, Michelle Williams has damaged her ankle. Here's some information direct from the Strictly Press Office:
Michelle went to see the physio on Tuesday, after taking a small tumble in the training room. She had thought it was nothing when it happened, but then her ankle had begun swell during the night, so she thought she ought to get it checked out.
The physio started by prodding Michelle’s ankle and telling her that he had to rule out a broken bone, so sent her to have an x-ray. When the results came back, his opinion was that it was ligament damage. He has ordered her not to train until Thursday, and to have regular phsyio. However, he believes it is still touch and go as to whether she will be able to dance on Saturday – the next 48 hours are critical, he says.
We're keeping our fingers firmly crossed that Michelle will be fit and ready to dance for our Halloween Special this coming weekend - we'll keep you updated with all the very latest news as soon as we can.
UPDATE (Friday morning): We're delighted to confirm that (barring any last-minute medical advice to the contrary), Michelle Williams WILL be dancing in this Saturday's Strictly Come Dancing. Hurrah!
