This weekend’s Strictly Come Dancing Halloween special was a fright night for some of its stars.
Strictly Come Dancing: Will Bayley And Professional Neil Jones Miss Out On Halloween Special After Suffering Last Minute Injuries
Both contestant Will Bayley and professional dancer Neil Jones were missing from Saturday night’s live show after suffering injuries in rehearsals.Paralympian Will and his professional partner Janette Manrara failed to compete after he suffered a knee injury while jumping off a table during rehearsals.
And Kevin Clifton stepped in to dance with former Lioness Alex Scott at the eleventh hour after Neil also injured himself on Saturday morning.
Kevin, who won last year’s series with his girlfriend Stacey Dooley, only had 40 minutes to learn the routine before taking to the dance floor.
Despite the setback, the football star earned 34 points, one of her highest scores yet, for her couples’ choice street/commercial routine to the Ghostbusters theme.When your dance partner's injured, who you gonna call @AlexScott? @keviclifton! That's the #Strictly spirit you two. 👻 pic.twitter.com/peyIxhsXaL— BBC Strictly ✨ (@bbcstrictly) October 26, 2019Stacey took to Twitter to praise Kevin after he stepped in for Neil, saying: “Yes Kev. That’s why you are the damn king. He had 40 minutes to learn that routine. I am so proud.”
Doctors said Will’s injury is less serious than first thought, but forbid him from dancing.
According to Strictly rules, the table tennis player, who has arthrogryposis (a congenital joint contracture), got a bye and moved straight through to the next round.
In a pre-recorded video message, Will told viewers: “I jumped off a table and as I landed, I landed with straight legs. I thought I had broken my legs as I had never felt anything like it before. But luckily, it’s not as severe as what I thought when I first did (it).
“To hear the words that I absolutely can’t dance, it was just really gutting for me, but I need to recover now and come back even stronger next week.”Hi everyone, I am absolutely gutted I cannot be performing tonight on strictly with Janette, sadly I'm injured and not fit to dance. I hope to be back on the dance floor next week. Good luck to everyone tonight. Thanks for all your messages guys, ill be back!! 🎃👻💃❤— Will Bayley MBE (@WillBayleytt) October 26, 2019Janette told host Claudia Winkleman that Will was at home “taking care of himself, icing, resting and fingers crossed he comes back next week”.
A spokeswoman for the show said: “Sadly, Will Bayley was injured during training and medics have said he cannot dance in the show this weekend.
“Under the rules of Strictly Come Dancing, Will has been granted a bye to next week.
“Separately, Alex Scott’s partner Neil Jones received an injury whilst training this morning. Kevin Clifton has stepped in to partner Alex in tonight’s show.”Sadly Will Bayley and Neil Jones are injured and unable to perform on #Strictly tonight: pic.twitter.com/gbl8GnGzke— BBC Strictly ✨ (@bbcstrictly) October 26, 2019It was a better night for Michelle Visage who ended up at the top of the leaderboard with a score of 39 after wowing the judges with a foxtrot to the Addams Family theme alongside her partner Gionvanni Pernice.
Alan Carr, who appears alongside Michelle as a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, watched from the audience as the pair received a standing ovation.
Judge Craig Revel Horwood said he “absolutely loved it”, while Shirley Ballas said it was “superb” and her “favourite performance so far”.
Another celebrity will be eliminated from the show during Sunday night’s knock-out episode.READ MORE: The 16 Most Memorable Halloween Week Strictly Come Dancing Performances Strictly's Kelvin Fletcher And Oti Mabuse Come Clean About Behind-The-Scenes Rows High-Kicking Johannes Is Now Everyone's Favourite Strictly Professional After This Show-Stopping Group Number
