Joe McFadden is said to have suffered an injury in training
Joe’s partner Katya Jones, 28, is said to have had to “cut holes in his shoes” because his poor feet have been suffering so much as the pair attempt to tackle the Cha Cha ahead of tomorrow night’s show.
A source reportedly told The Sun: “Katya needs him to get back to training and practice their dance so to help him, she has cut holes in his dancing shows to relieve him of the pressure.
“His big toes are getting squashed and hurt in training and he is in a lot of pain while doing his routine this week.”

Joe’s alleged injuries come after Alexandra Burke revealed that she had cut her lip open while practicing with partner Gorka Marquez.
The former X Factor winner teased last week: ”Not many people know this. We really did butt heads and I had a big cut on my lip.”
"So I’m a little concerned. We went out to Elstree this afternoon to do our rehearsals on the Strictly dancefloor," she admitted in a video on Instagram.

Ruth Langsford was also amongst celebrities to have suffered an injury
Ruth continued: "Just before I went down, I was in my dressing room and I just thought I’d walk through my steps and just familiarise myself and make sure I know the routine, and I kicked my leg out and I’ve pulled a hamstring.
“I went to see the physio and she would’t let me go to rehearsals this afternoon, she’s told me I’ve got to ice it.
"I’ve got to have a hot bath and then I’ve got to ice it again, take ibuprofen."
Strictly Come Dancing continues tomorrow at 6.45pm on BBC One.
