Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood will be on the show this weekend, despite undergoing surgery.

The choreographer this week had a hip operation after his decades of dance experience got the better of him.

But just days later, Craig's already back on his feet and will be taking his usual seat on the Strictly panel this Saturday night, unfortunately for the remaining celebrity contestants.

Following the op earlier this week, the acid-tongue judge tweeted his followers: "Shoot me down, but I won't fall, I am titanium.

"Hip op done and have stood for the first time now for the walking bit - feeling great though."

Speaking about the procedure earlier this year, Craig explained: "It's all those years of can-cans and dropping in the splits.

"The problem is, of course, it's like all sports injuries. Sportsmen and women need hip replacements. It was all those years of classical ballet and forcing turn-outs. It can be quite detrimental to your body."

Strictly continues Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One.
