Yikes! Strictly Come Dancing's Michael Vaughan struggling with injury already!

Michael Vaughan (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 celebrity Michael Vaughan has revealed he's already struggling with an ibjury.

The cast of the show have so far only appeared in one show, but the former England cricketer has admitted he's being "tested" by a dodgy knee.

He said: “I retired from cricket because I had a dodgy knee and my footwork wasn’t so good, so dancing is testing me.”

Meanwhile Michael found himself in a bit of a row with last year's Strictly contestant and fellow sportstar Robbie Savage.

In a chat on Radio 5 Live, Robbie told Michael: "My advice would be, it’s not all about the dancing. That’s what you come to realise. It’s about your persona and selling the dances.”

However Michael hit back: “Was that your excuse? It’s not all about the dancing?

“All you need to do when you’re struggling is grab your crown jewels, that’s all you did mate.”

But Robbie quipped: “As a sportsman you get known by a certain audience, or in Michael’s case one man and his dog at county cricket.

"But when he’s at Strictly all the grandmas will get to know him and it will change his life.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 kicks off on Saturday night on BBC One.
