Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole is giving Kimberley Walsh tips on Strictly Come Dancing 2012.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror this week, Kimberley revealed that her Girls Aloud bandmate was giving her some extra training sessions.

“Cheryl is helping me,” she told the newspaper. “She’s amazing at ballroom because she did it as a child – she really knows her stuff. We’ve been talking a lot about it.

"I told her I was doing the pasodoble. She was like, ‘Ooh, you have to do it like this, and like this.’ She’s really supportive.”

But Kimberley's upcoming performance on Saturday night has been thrown in chaos after she suffered a knee injury in training.

She said: "I've got a little bit of a bad knee which causing me a bit of trouble, but I'm getting physio every day and I'm crossing everything that I'll be able to salsa this weekend, so fingers crossed."

A show source told the tabloid today: "Kimberley's been suffering with a knee injury and has been training with it strapped up.

"Pasha's been an absolute saint in helping her continue dancing and she has seen a physiotherapist this week, who has been working wonders.

"She is dancing a salsa this week - so, fast with lots of twists and turns which aren't helping her knee.

"She is determined to train through the pain because she loves her dance this week, and hopes her knee will hold out."

Tune in to this week’s show on Saturday 3rd November at 6.30pm for Strictly Come Dancing with Strictly Come Dancing: The Results on Sunday 4th November at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
