Strictly hampered by injury and illness

With a show that was doomed from the start by the absence of Bruce Forsyth through illness, a programme in the popular Strictly Come Dancing series was plagued by work accidents and injuries.

Just as the show opened, Forsyth's replacement, Ronnie Corbett nearly suffered a work place injury as he stumbled down the stairs to begin the show. Almost falling down the stairs entirely, the 78-year-old TV veteran only just managed to save himself in time.

As well as Corbett's disastrous entrance, Jade Johnson was forced to pull out on doctor's orders after injuring her knee during rehearsals. There are now concerns that it could hamper her 2012 Olympic long-jump training if it does not heal soon.

And thanks to a sprained ankle, Laila Rouass only managed to complete part of her rumba, wiping away tears as dance partner Anton Du Beke had to carry her for the last few moments of their routine.

Luckily, co-presenter Tess Daly managed to carry on the show without any further hiccups or incurring any work accidents like her colleagues.
