*Breaking* news… but not too broken we hope.  Natalie Gumede is suffering with sciatica and a compressed disc in her back after an old injury resurfaced this week.  
Natalie, who is currently at the top of the Strictly leader board with 36 points, has had to miss two days of training to fit in an MRI scan yesterday and physio treatment this morning.  Although she and her dance partner Artem Chigvintsev haven’t had as long to rehearse, Natalie is determined to still dance on Saturday night. 
We’ll keep you posted on developments as and when they happen, but in the meantime, we wish Natalie a very speedy recovery.
