Shirley Ballas has informed Strictly Come Dancing fans of her future on the show, after fears she would have to pull out.
She was rushed to hospital after an accident this weekend, with it revealed she had broken her right ankle.
Sharing snaps of her hospital dash and her foot in a cast on Instagram, Craig Revel Horwood’s co-judge revealed what had happened after being left on crutches.
She then addressed her Strictly future, just months before the show would normally kick off.
Revealing her injuries, Shirley promised she would be back on the show and her ankle will have healed in time for the BBC series.
She told fans in an Instagram 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.”
That said, the show’s filming and airing date is up in the air at the moment amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Little has been revealed about how the series will go ahead and meet social distancing rules, while some changes have been reported.
Announcements usually begin soon over which celebrities are taking part, with training then getting underway before the usual September launch.
The BBC have yet to confirm how the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic will affect the show, with guidelines changing all the time.
That said, last month it was reported that the launch will be delayed until October, and that fewer celebrities will take part.
A source revealed: “An insider said: “Once all group numbers are recorded in August, the pro dancers must spend two weeks isolating before the next stage.
“With celebs, we’ve no trouble getting them as there is little other work around – but the need to isolate means the timings are against us.”
There was also talks of the show running a shorter series this year, with it thought more details will be announced soon.
Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One later in the year.
