James Jordan will be well enough to perform with Denise Van Outen on Strictly Come Dancing 2012 this weekend.
The pro dancer suffered an ankle injury last weekend that has forced him out of training.
Former Strictly pro Ian Waite has returned to give Denise a helping hand this week ahead of the weekend's latest performance show.
A source told The Sun this week: "No one realised how bad James’ ankle was until after [last] Saturday’s show. He can barely walk let alone dance.
“Ian is a great dancer and James is directing them — but it’s not the same.
“Denise is really worried about him, she can’t believe how much pain he’s in – and how much groaning he’s doing.”
However today the official [cat]Strictly Come Dancing[/cat] Twitter account confirmed: "James ankle update: He WILL be dancing on Saturday night #ittakestwo #hardasnails”
Now the lovely Denise has been joined by two hunky dancers in training!
She tweeted today: “Long rehearsal day today with @The_JamesJordan and @ianwaite”
However with just two days until the latest live show, will the lack of rehearsals hurt Denise's chances?
This week Strictly Come Dancing is on Saturday 10th November at 6.30pm with the results show on Sunday 11th November at 7.25pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
