Poor Strictly Come Dancing star Lisa Robin and her partner Robin Windsor have fallen ill!

With just a few weeks to go until the final and the competition hotting up, it couldn't come at a worse time for both of them.

But despite the chest infections, the duo have been continuing to rehearse ahead of tomorrow night's show.

The pair, who will be performing a Quickstep to Bring Me Sunshine by Jive Aces, tweeted: “Team Ri-Ro are poorly puppies today both full of a cold and chest infection! Both of us are coughing through practice this dance “Germstep”"

This weekend Lisa and Robin are performing the Quickstep to Bring Me Sunshine by Jive Aces, and the pair are looking forward to the dance.

She said: “I’m loving the quickstep, it’s so fast, I feel like a trotting horse! And we’ve got something very special for the end.

“It really is fast and the footwork is intricate, it went well in training in Monday but Thursday might be a different story.”

Lisa told Zoe Ball: “I just want nice comments, we’ve been to Wembley and it was wow, we had a little dip last week and hopefully we can get back up there.

“As long as I go out there every Saturday and know I’ve tried really hard and made myself proud then I’m happy.”

This week Strictly Come Dancing is on Saturday 1st December at 6.50pm with the results show on Sunday 2nd December at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
