It looks like Strictly Come Dancing star Ranvir Singh’s quickstep got off to a rather painful start.

The ITV presenter updated her fans on the week’s progress by posting a rather gruesome photo of her foot to her Insta stories.

Ranvir’s shot is a close-up of her swollen foot, marked with a dash of blood that seems to have also dripped onto her pink dance shoe.

The 43-year-old captioned it: ‘Blood on the dance floor! And a swollen foot…hello quickstep!’

Ouch. While we’re usually pretty envious of the Loose Women panellist, for once we’re glad not to be in her shoes.

Ranvir and partner Giovanni Pernice are set to perform a cha-cha-cha to a Carlos Santana song on tonight’s episode of the hit BBC competition.

The pair stunned audiences and judges alike last week, when their Dreamgirls-inspired foxtrot earned 27 out of 30 points—the top mark awarded so far this season.

But they’ll have to impress a new judge tonight, when ‘king of ballroom’ Anton du Beke will quick-step onto the panel.

It seems this week hasn’t been very kind to Ranvir’s soles at all. Her feet were so sore on Wednesday that she was forced to wear a pair of slippers on Good Morning Britain.

When weather reporter Laura Tobin pointed out the unusually casual fashion statement, Ranvir replied: ‘I am wearing my slippers. I’m so sorry! It’s the cha-cha-cha. The balls of my feet are so sore.

‘But nobody needs to know this – I’m sure it will all be lovely on Saturday!’

She did appear to be feeling a bit better today, taking to Insta stories once again to give her fans an update.

Ranvir shared a picture as she left the Good Morning Britain studios en route to the Strictly set.

She captioned it: ‘From GMB to BBC Strictly via Havana with @pernicegiovanni! See you tonight.’

No pain, no gain? We’ll find out tonight.

Strictly Come Dancing airs tonight at 7:10pm on BBC One.
