She told The Sun: "My knee really hurts. I had to have physio on it three times last week.

"I hope I can go one more week. I’m sure I will because I’m enjoying myself so much."

Fellow finalist Abbey Clancy has also admitted that her "body is failing her" in the run up to Saturday's final.

Meanwhile, the song list and dance styles the couples will be taking on have been revealed.
