Strictly Come Dancing star James Jordan made his debut on Friday night’s show with a broken nose.
His wife, Ola Jordan – also a professional dancer – accidentally kicked him in the face as they practiced a group dance for the show.
James Jordan, who was seen by medics after the accident, is partnered with the actress and singer Denise Van Outen.
Ola Jordan later tweeted, saying: “I’m so so sorry @The_JamesJordan, I feel so bad!!!!”
James Jordan is the third professional dancer to receive an injury during rehearsals for this year’s show.
Dancer Artem Chigvintsev was also hurt on Friday when he was hit in the face by fellow professional Flavia Cacace’s elbow.
He is believed to have been bruised on the cheek.
Last week, 28-year-old professional dancer Aliona Vilani fractured her ankle while practicing a tango routine with veteran TV presenter Johnny Ball.
In the meantime, Johnny Ball was partnered by Iveta Lukosiute, a veteran of US show So You Think You Can Dance?
James Jordan said he was determined to carry on for the sake of Denise Van Outen, who missed her grandfather’s funeral to maintain the couple’s strict training schedule.
