Shirley Ballas was rushed to hospital today after she broke her ankle.
The Strictly Come Dancing judge, 59, ended up with a boot on and is now walking on crutches after being treated in A&E.
Taking to Instagram to share a video of herself walking with her new injury, Shirley reassured her followers that she would be fine in time to return to the judging panel this autumn.
Her partner Daniel Taylor, 47, also posted pictures of the two of them in the hospital, calling Shirley a “brave soldier”.
In her clip Shirley showed how she was learning to use the crutches, chanting “crutches, right foot, close” to herself.
She said in the video: “Hi everybody, I’ve just finished at A&E after a clean break on my right ankle.
“We’re not using Plaster of Paris anymore, using a boot, so I’m learning to walk on these crutches – crutches, right foot, close, a bit like the Waltz.
“Anyway, I’m going to be absolutely fine for Strictly.”
Shirley also posted a picture of herself with one of the nurses who looked after her.
She didn’t say how she’d broken her ankle.
The dancer captioned the post: “So a clean break. Six weeks to heal. Thank you to NHS and all staff who took care of me.
“@danieltayloresq thank you for being there. Painful but I’ll trolly on.
“#cleanbreak #brokenankle. I’ll be fine for @bbcstrictly thank you for all the messages. #gratitude.”
Daniel also shared pictures of them in the doctor’s office and some of Shirley being pushed around in a wheelchair by a nurse.
He wrote: “In A&E with this brave soldier @shirleyballas !
“You can never say it enough but thank you to our amazing #NHS for your time and care and of course all the sacrifices you all make on a daily basis to look after our country.
