Laura Whitmore no doubt has her fingers crossed during her Strictly Come Dancing training this week, in the hopes that the ankle injury that saw her miss out on last week’s show won’t flare up again.

The Irish TV presenter was forced to pull out after she strained her ankle while rehearsing a jive with her partner Giovanni Pernice and was left unable to stand.

“On Tuesday and Wednesday we trained really hard. I was in a lot of pain but persevered,” she said in a blog post last week. “I thought I should just work through any pain and it would get better. When I got home I couldn’t walk up the steps to my front door and my whole right ankle was three times the size of my left. I freaked out!”

Thankfully Laura’s been back at training this week after being given an all-clear from the doctor, but her Instagram post this morning left some fans a little worried. The MTV star shared a picture of her leg propped up on a chair, with a foam roller beside her and an ice pack on her ankle.

“You are stronger than you think,” she wrote alongside the snap. “Will u be dancing this Sat night, the show is not the same without you,” one fan wrote. “Hope it heals quickly,” wrote another.

Contestants are permitted to miss one show without losing their chance at the final, but only one, so everything hinges on this week for Laura. The 31-year-old is set to dance a tango to The Rolling Stones’ Paint It Black, as long as her ankle holds up.

Fingers crossed that swelling goes down and Laura can take to the stage. After all, she’s reppin’ Team Ireland!
