Strictly Come Dancing star Kimberley Walsh needs intensive physiotherapy before this weekend’s performance.

The Girls Aloud singer has damaged her knee and has been diagnosed as suffering from iliotibial band syndrome.

Walsh said she has her “fingers crossed” that she will be able to perform with her pro partner Pasha Kovalev this weekend.

Kimberley attended the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year event earlier this week and told What’s on TV: “I've got a little bit of a bad knee which is causing me a bit of trouble, but I'm getting physio every day and I'm crossing everything that I'll be able to salsa this weekend, so fingers crossed.”

A show source said: "Kimberley's been suffering with a knee injury and has been training with it strapped up.

“Pasha's been an absolute saint in helping her continue dancing and she has seen a physiotherapist this week, who has been working wonders.

“She is dancing a salsa this week – so, fast with lots of twists and turns which aren't helping her knee. She is determined to train through the pain because she loves her dance this week, and hopes her knee will hold out.”

Last weekend, Kimberley managed her best dance of the series gaining 31 points from the judges and putting her in second joint place behind Louis Smith.
