Stepping Out: Ortisé Williams' girlfriend AJ Azari injured in training

Stepping Out 2013 - Oritsé Williams and AJ Azari

ITV's Stepping Out starts in a week's time, but there's already been injuries.

The new reality series sees celebrities and their partners taught to dance in a Strictly Come Dancing style competition.

Each week the stars will put their relationships to the test as their real life partners join them in practising varying genres of dance, with viewers following the couples on their journies from their homes to the dancefloor.

But girlfriend of JLS singer Ortisé Williams, AJ Azari, has already been left hurt as the celebs prepare for their first dance.

She tweeted this week: "On the way to rehearsals with @Oritse !! I have an injured arm, so dont know how this is gona go xx"

Unlike Strictly, which focuses on ballroom dancing, Stepping Out will feature a mixture of both classic and contemporary dance styles.

The line-up features former Westlife singer Brian McFadden and his wife Vogue Williams, Loose Women panellist Denise Welch and her husband Lincoln Townley.

Also giving it a go are boxer Carl Froch and girlfriend Rachel Cordingley, interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and wife Jackie, and actress Glynis Barber with her husband Michael Brandon.

Stepping Out starts Saturday 31 August at 6.30pm on ITV.
