Strictly's Natalie Gumede struggles with back injury

Thursday October 17, 2013

Actress Natalie Gumede may be forced to miss the next Strictly Come Dancing live show due to an agonising back problem.

The former Coronation Street actress had to miss training yesterday and went to have an MRI scan amid fears she may have slipped a disk.

Her partner Artem Chigvintsev said: "She fears the worst and would hate not to be able to perform on Saturday. It may be touch and go…if it is serious she might not be able to continue."

On last week's show Natalie secured the top spot on the leader board after scoring an impressive 36 for her rumba to Rihanna's Love the Way You Lie.
