Strictly stars debut in jeopardy as ‘shattered’ star suffers injury just 48 hours before live show | The Sun

CORRIE star Will Mellor has suffered a knee injury – just days before the first live Strictly show.

The 46-year-old shared a clip of himself icing his knees during rehearsals for the BBC dance show, admitting he was in “shock.”

In the video, an exhausted looking Will said: "Just in rehearsal for Strictly. Will's knees sponsored by peas."

He captioned it: "In rehearsal for @bbcstrictly!! My knees are in shock!! #tooldforthis #strictlycomedancing #dancing #badknees #shattered."

Will has previously expressed concern about his knees, after previously revealing he has struggled with them for over 10 years.

He told Digital Spy:  "I don't want to get injured. I've got bad knees and football injuries, operations and stuff. I'm having to ice them every night.

"If they pop out in the middle of a dance routine live on telly, there's not much I can do because I will just hit the floor, and they do.

"They've popped out while I've been walking down the stairs before now. I can pop it back in, but at that moment, I have no strength in the leg."

Strictly Come Dancing kicks off with its launch show on September 23, 2022, at 7pm on BBC One.
