KAYE Adams has suffered a painful rib injury during Strictly Come Dancing rehearsals.
The 59-year-old ‘Loose Women’ regular is among the famous faces competing in the 2022 series of the BBC talent show and she’s revealed she’s sustained some nasty bruising across her chest after being “thrown around” the dance floor by her 27-year-old professional partner Kai Widdrington.
Kaye revealed the injury in an Instagram video with her co-star Nadia Sawalha, with the TV star asking her pal: “Do you want to see my wound?” before lifting up her shirt to show tape across her torso.
She then explained: “Just taping up my ribs. It’s not a plaster, it’s because there’s a big bruise on my ribs. I’ve been too energetic getting thrown around”.
Kaye added that the pair have been practising lifts and that’s how she hurt her ribs.
It comes after Kaye admitted she felt pretty terrified about taking part in the show, but decided to push through her fear to compete this year.
Speaking on ‘Loose Women’ when she announced her involvement in ‘Strictly’, Kaye explained: “Actually it’s quite funny because I’m terrified, I’m absolutely terrified … It’ll be a journey. I’ll be honest with you, I can think of a million reasons not to do this and when these gorgeous dancers came on, I nearly exited from both ends of my body, honestly.
“But I thought, ‘Am I going to be thinking at the end of September, I wish I’d done this?’ I’m 59, 60 at the end of this year and I was like, ‘Well, why not?’”
