BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker, 44, has left fans wincing with his latest Strictly Come Dancing training update on Instagram this evening. Dan appeared alongside his professional dance partner Nadiya Bychkova, 32, in a video, which he shared with his 243,000 followers.
The star admitted he was left with “blood coming out of his mouth” after suffering an accident while rehearsing his Charleston with Nadiya this week.
Dan previously revealed Nadiya had “kneed him in the chin” by mistake yesterday as they tried to pull off a tricky lift for their routine.
However, the presenter has now confirmed that the injury was far more gory than he had initially stated.
Dan began the clip by saying: “We’re celebrating the end of our training session with a chocolate digestive.
“I mean, really? He wasn’t ready, we were doing the lift…”
Dan then interjected: “There was blood coming out of my mouth, all over the place!”
Apologising again, Nadiya sheepishly said: “I’m really, really sorry partner, sorry!”
Fortunately, Dan then stopped teasing Nadiya and added: “That’s alright.
