In a video posted online, the Loose Women star said: "Just before I went down I was in my dressing room, I said: 'I'll just familiarise my steps and make sure I know the routine.

"I kicked my leg out and I've pulled a hamstring."

Ruth has been told to rest up in order to be okay for her second live performance tonight.

"So here under there is an ice pack wrapped in a tea towel," she said. "Then I've got to have a hot bath, then I've got to ice it again, take ibuprofen and [the doctor] said it's pretty sure it will be okay tomorrow."

But even if Ruth does make a recovery, she's could still be going home after missing out on rehearsals.

She added: "I've had no rehearsal. I'm more worried about no rehearsal than I am about my hamstring which is stupid I know. Wish me luck - operation get hamstring better begins now!"

Unfortunately for Ruth she's one of the celebs in desperate need of a boost after landing bottom of last weekend's leaderboard.

Ruth and pro partner Anton Du Beke performed the Waltz on Saturday night for their first performance, scorinng 16 points from the judges.

The total - which included just a three from Craig Revel Horwood - left the pair joint bottom of the table alongside comedian Brian Conley who danced the Tango.

For week 2, Ruth and Anton will perform a Charleston to The Charleston by Bob Wilson and his Varsity Rhythm Boys.
