The Corrie actress could be forced to pull out of Strictly Come Dancing, after catching chicken pox from her two year old daughter Scarlett
Coronation Street’s Tina O’Brien could be forced to pull out of Strictly Come Dancing, after catching chicken pox from her two year old daughter Scarlett.
It's been confirmed that the soap star won’t be dancing onto our screens for tomorrow’s show, and may even have to leave the celebrity competition completely if she’s still too ill to dance next weekend.
‘I'm devastated. I was so looking forward to this week's show,' the emotional star told The Sun.
‘Jared and I have spent so much time and effort on a really fantastic routine and I just couldn't wait to perform it.
‘Hopefully I'll bounce back quickly and be on top dancing form soon. I'll be watching them all this weekend.’
After announcing the news, the sorry star even took to Twitter to tell fans how bad she felt. ‘So poorly, spots everywhere,' she Tweeted.
‘Up my nose, mouth etc, just gonna rest up and recover quickly! Chicken pox, Arrghhh Itch itch itch.’
Meanwhile, Paul Daniels, another celeb hoping to scoop the dancing crown, walked out of a grueling training session this week because he was struggling to get his feet around the routine.
A source told the Sun: 'Learning the steps doesn't come naturally to Paul at all.'
