Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Lisa Riley nicknamed "The Nutcracker"!

Lisa Riley (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing favourite Lisa Riley has been nicknamed the Nutcracker, after giving pro partner Robin Windsor a nasty injury!

The Emmerdale star caught Robin in the privates during a training mishap last week, which saw Lisa leapfrog Robin as part of their jive routine last Saturday night.

And 33-year-old Robin has been pain ever since, with his 'privates' bruised.

A source told the Daily Star today: “His crown jewels took a bit of a battering.”

Meanwhile, the newspaper also reports that the show's spray tan booth has been closed down ahead of this weekend's Halloween themed show.

A very disappointed Richard Arnold told the tabloid this morning: “It’s because it’s Halloween Week and they want us to look a whiter shade of pale rather than pumpkin orange.”
