The presenter gets a pass to week 6 following an ankle injury.

TV presenter Laura Whitmore and her partner Giovanni Pernice will not be performing on tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing live show it has been confirmed.

A statement released from the BBC says,

“Laura Whitmore will not perform on tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing due to an ankle injury sustained earlier in the week. She has been checked by a doctor and the medical team on site and they have advised that she rests her ankle and does not dance this weekend. As per the rules of Strictly Come Dancing – because Laura and Giovanni cannot dance on tonight’s show – they will receive a bye through to next week and the show will continue with a public vote as per usual. We wish Laura a very speedy recovery.”

That means viewers will only get 10 performances tonight rather than the expected 11. Earlier this week it was confirmed that Anastacia would be partnered with Gorka Marquez for tonight’s live show after Brendan Cole took ill and was advised not to dance by doctors.

We wish Laura and Brendan speedy recoveries and hope to see them both back on the show next weekend!
