Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Will Young is ALREADY injured!

Will Young Strictly Come Dancing

Will Young has won the title of first celebrity to get himself injured on Strictly Come Dancing 2016.

And it's taken some doing given proper training hasn't even started this week.

Will's fellow Strictly cast member Ed Ball quipped: "It's touch and go whether Will will be able to make the first weekend".

It turns out that Will has hurt his ankle after slipping up while having a cigarette, so not even dancing!

"I slipped on a step," he revealed to Digital Spy.

The singer joked: "It's not as bad as I'm making out but I'm trying to get sympathy."

Will added: "I'm just clumsy. I just tripped over a step. I think I was going out for a cigarette and I tripped over a step."

Even putting the dodgy ankle to one side, Will's found rehearsing for tonight's first dance tough going.

"I keep on asking for breaks," he said. "Every time they go, 'Okay, we are going…' I say, 'Break? Break? No?' They work us hard."

The former Pop Idol champ went on: "It doesn't feel like a competition. And it's not a talent show. It's an experience - it's like the Strictly experience.

"I think people talk about that - the chance to learn, that side of things. It would just be nice to learn as many dances as I can and not fall over steps."

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 airs tonight at 6:50PM on BBC One.
