Aljaz Skorjanec could reportedly miss this year's edition of Strictly Come Dancing due to a serious knee injury.
The 31-year-old is one of the most popular members of the show's professional dance crew and has been part of the lineup since 2013, a year in which he was crowned winner alongside celebrity partner Abbey Clancy.
According to The Sun, Skorjanec suffered a knee injury while performing in the West End show Here Come The Boys earlier this month and was warned that it was severe enough that it could mean an end to his dancing career.
"Aljaz was on stage when he twisted his knee and it left him in agony. He knew it was serious, so went to a doctor who said he had to pull out of the show at once," a source told the newspaper.
"He said if the knee didn't recover, Aljaz might never walk normally again. Aljaz felt terrible about it but stepped aside and is now resting up as much as possible.
"The hope is he will make a full recovery. But until that happens, it's fair to say his dance future is in jeopardy."
The news comes days after Skorjanec's wife Janette Manrara was announced as the new host on Strictly spinoff show It Takes Two.
