The journalist and broadcaster hurt her foot while practising a daring scissor-kick lift for her Argentine tango during training this week.
Katie mis-timed her legwork while dancing with partner Anton Du Beke, and had to cut short her training session.
A source told The Sun: “Katie smashed one heel on to the top of her other foot. The howl was audible.
“Katie couldn’t continue. She had to end the training session with an ice pack pressed against her foot.”
However, the hard-working star was back in the rehearsal room the next day, continuing like a pro.
