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.

 

Initial prognosis suggests our plucky pro-dancer may be out of action for the next 2-4 weeks, but a further appointment tomorrow will confirm her condition.

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

    Aliona get well soon, hope the ankle is getting better every day. I am sure you and Johnny will be back together before too long. I am sorry I am going to miss the first weekend as off on holiday but will be playing catch up when I get back. I wish all the couples good luck for their first live show on the 5th.

    Hoping that Aliona is still doing well and the foot is mending agree with No. 34 - with any sort of break the problem is the stiffness and it's going to be worse being the foot, but dancers are extremely fit. I'm sure the producer will put Johnny in the second week. this will give Aliona an extra week. Do so hope Johnny won't be voted off before Aliona has a chance to get back on the show, that would be awful!

    I would like to add my voice to those wishing AV well.

    But I wonder where this leaves the relationship between pro and celeb? Iveta I would imagine would have her own techniques for getting the best out of JB. If JB holds out till AV returns he would, I presume, would have to readjust his training to accommodate AV's methodology which looking at the first day of training looks fine. Work on weight and body placement can only help.

    Even then AV will likely not be 100% fit and I am predicting an experience in stiffness. Because when the doc at the hospital took the plaster cast of my wrist after I had broke it after slipping on ice on the last day or two of 2009 the worst part was the stiffness. I had to undergo a few weeks of physiotherapy to get full movement back. I don't know if my break was anything like hers and I could be wrong, but I have recent experience of that kind of accident.

    I hope that she gets better soon :) I've just read the previous report about the hairline fracture, so I hope it heals soon.

    Looks like Aliona is not going to make the first dance with Johnny which is a great shame haven't heard who he will be training and dancing him yet - unless they give him a week off and maybe swop him and Aliona with another team. Do hope Aliona foot will mend quicky and she will be back with Johnny asap.

    Wishing Aliona a speedy recovery and hope she is back on her feet soon. Perhaps Karen could step in to help until Aliona is well enough, it would be nice to see her again.
