Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Louis Smith may be too ill to perform!

Louis Smith (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 star Louis Smith is in danger of missing out on this weekend's latest live show, after falling ill.

Last week saw pro Erin Boag get the Strictly bug, with a last minute decision made by the dancer to go ahead and dance.

But Louis may still be too ill for tomorrow's live show after catching the illness, which has also been had by It Takes Two host Zoe Ball.

"Louis is the latest celebrity to get this Strictly sickness bug! He is in isolation at his hotel," a source told DigitalSpy. "Erin Boag and It Takes Two host Zoe Ball had it last week. Louis hasn't been able to come to the final rehearsals with his pro partner Flavia Cacace today."

Tweeting his fans yesterday, Louis said: "The start of a long night #reallyunwell"

He added later: "I hate being sick 🙁

"Drinking dioralyte is like drinking pool water yuck. But big thanks to @bbcstrictly for getting me some xx."

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.
