Laura Whitmore has been FORCED to pull out of this week’s Strictly

Strictly Come Dancing has taken to its Twitter account to share the news that Laura Whitmore will not be dancing in this week's show.

The tweet said: "Sadly Laura @thewhitmore is suffering from an ankle injury and won’t be dancing on #Strictly tonight". 

Laura also took to Twitter to say she was devastated by the news.

Laura and her partner Giovanni Pernice were all set to dance the jive, but due to an injury sustained earlier in the week, she was advised by the medical team to rest. 

Laura and Giovanni will go straight through to next week and the show will continue with a public vote as usual tonight.
