Strictly Come Dancing's Brendan Cole 'rushed to hospital' but WILL dance tonight

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 - Professional Dancers Brendan Cole

Strictly Come Dancing's Brendan Cole was 'rushed to hospital' earlier today, it's been revealed.

Just hours before tonight's live show, Brendan was taken to see doctors over a lung infection.

Following treatment, Brendan WILL still perform on the show tonight with celebrity partner Anastacia, but the duo have missed last minute practice.

Brendan took to Twitter earlier to reveal: "NHS docs, nurses & staff are phenomenal. Thank you for looking after me in the wee hours. Lung infection now under control so thank you.

The pro dancer continued: "Had to take myself to A&E as I couldn't breath very well so not enough oxygen getting through. Incredible care, cannot thank enough #NHS."

Brendan added: "all fine for tonight though. Might just be a little coughing and spluttering during our rumba!"

It's fair to say it's not been a great few weeks for Brendan and Anastacia.

Before Brendan's hospital dash it was Anastacia who needed the attention of medics after ripping scar tissue in her chest.

The injury meant they had to drastically re-choreograph their salsa and ended up ruling Anastacia out of the dance off.

Doctors have since given Anastacia the all clear to keep dancing but the pair need to be careful with their routines to make sure the injury isn't aggravated further.

Tonight Anastacia and Brendan will dance the Rumba to 'The Way We Were' by Barbra Streisand.

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 airs tonight at 6:30PM on BBC One.
