Katie McGlynn sustains an injury to her foot while filming a promotional video for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Katie McGlynn has sustained a foot injury while recording a promotional video for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The Hollyoaks actress is one of 15 celebrities taking part in the new series, which starts on BBC One later this month.

According to The Sun, McGlynn's accident occurred as she kicked the show's iconic glitterball while filming a promo - unaware that it was made of glass and not plastic.

"She was absolutely raging because nobody told her that it was a genuine glass glitterball," a source told the newspaper.

"Her feet were properly exposed in high heels and she was dolled up to the nines for filming.

"After giving it a brief run-up, she pelted the ball and was left in severe pain.

"There was glass everywhere and everyone was left in shock at what happened.

"She blames the staff on set because nobody told her what it was made of - or that she should only pretend to kick it."

A BBC spokeswoman downplayed the severity of the injury, telling the newspaper: "Katie McGlynn sustained a minor cut to her foot whilst filming digital material for Strictly.

"She was treated by the on-site medic who applied a plaster and she is absolutely fine."

Strictly Come Dancing launches on BBC One on Saturday, September 18.
