Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Kristina Rihanoff taken to A&E after training mishap

Strictly Come Dancing

Two more injuries have plagued Strictly Come Dancing 2013 ahead of Saturday night's latest live show.

Earlier this week, Ben Cohen's pro partner Kristina Rihanoff went to hospital after injuring her foot in a training mishap.

A show insider said: “Kristina doesn’t want to have to pull out of this week’s show as she wants to dance with Ben in Blackpool.

“Her toe is causing her a lot of grief so she’s had to go to hospital to get injections."

They added to the Daily Star newspaper: “She’s hoping that the swelling will do down before the show, but has told Ben she will dance through the pain if she has to.”

Meanwhile, Natalie Gumede's pro partner Artem Chigvintsev has also been left in agony after hurting his back when rehearsing a lift.

It's not the best news for the pair, who had to sit last weekend's show out when Natalie fainted during rehearsals.

Speaking on It Takes Two, the Corrie star explained: Unfortunately for Artem, during a lift he injured himself.

"We have had to pull back a tiny bit, but we’re enjoying ourselves and every week we bring the drama!”
