Poor Zara McDermott has been training so hard for this week’s Strictly Come Dancing routine that half her toe has come off!
The former Love Island star, 26, made her dance debut with her pro partner Graziano Di Prima, 29, last weekend.
After scoring 19 points with their Cha Cha, Zara revealed that she’ll be tackling the Quickstep this Saturday.
How’s training you ask, well let’s just say the documentary maker has been putting the work in.
In her latest Instagram Story Zara shared a pretty grim close-up of her injured toe and wrote: ‘I put this on my close friends but I think the world needs to see it.’
She said: ‘I just have to let you all know that half my toe has come off… that’s half my toe!’
Before the live show premiered, a terrified, wide-eyed Zara added: ‘Dancing live on national television is not something that I’ve thought too deeply into at this point because I think I will get overwhelmed.’
‘Craig is obviously the harshest judge, for sure,’ she went on. ‘And I’m definitely a bit scared of him and scared of what he’s going to say.
‘But if I get a three in week 1, I’m happy.’
However,Zara was supported from the sidelines by boyfriend Sam Thompson, 31, and former Towie star Pete Wicks, 35, who both rocked custom shirts with her face on them.
Sam previously insisted the lovebirds are safe from the so-called Strictly curse, despite Zara having cheated on Sam once before and Sam being unfaithful to previous girlfriends.
‘She was 22… so f***ing young,’ Sam said.
‘You know when you look at them and you go, “She ain’t going to do that again” I could see in her face.
“You can just tell when someone has a beautiful heart and a beautiful soul and just f***ed up,’ he added when speaking to The Mirror.
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday at 6.15pm on BBC One.
