Strictly Come Dancing husband and wife duo Neil and Katya Jones suffered a very painful run-in during rehearsals for tonight’s show.
As the professional dancers worked on their group routine, Katya jumped back into Neil’s arms and – after misjudging her timing – smashed right into Neil’s face.
Shock footage of the incident shows Neil then dropping to his knee in shock and clasping his hands to his mouth and nose.
He later posted the video to his Instagram page to the concern of his thousands of followers.
“I’m asked all the time if we ever get hurt during rehearsals… here is your answer,” he said.
Neil then explained: “But don’t worry I’m OK, nothing was broken and Mrs Katya Jones put ice on it straight away.”
To show there was no hard feeling he followed it up with four cry-laughing emojis.
Fans rushed to the comment box to share their sympathies with injured Neil.
“Ouch made my eyes water just watching,” said one.
“That’s brutal!” cried another.
The Strictly Come Dancing pro dancers are bracing themselves for tonight’s musicals extravangza.
Only six couples remain in the running after Graeme Swann and dancer partner Oti Mabuse’s exit last Sunday.
Joe Sugg, Faye Tozer, Ashely Roberts, Lauren Steadman and Charles Venn are all competing for a place in next week’s semi finals.
Katya and Neil put on a show of solidarity this week after attempting to move on from the Seann Walsh kiss scandal.
Their marriage was tested just weeks ago when Katya was pictured snogging her Strictly dance partner in the street after a boozy night out.
But the couple put on an amorous display at the Macmillan’s charity gala on Wednesday.
Katya kissed her husband’s cheek and gazed lovingly into his eyes as they posed for pictures.
Just weeks ago the pair were spotted avoiding each other behind the scenes of Strictly Come Dancing.
Despite appearing to put the scandal behind them after dancing together at Blackpool, it looks like it may still be haunting their relationship, although a rep for the show denied it.
An insider told Mirror TV: “Katya and Neil were filming a pre-recorded pro-dance routine and things were clearly very awkward between them.
“They were avoiding each other whenever they were off-camera and Katya seemed like she was a completely different person when she wasn’t with Neil.
“Katya was laughing and joking with all the other pros but whenever she was with Neil she was stone-faced.
“Neil also seemed reluctant to speak to his wife and was more interested in having fun with the rest of the crew.”
A rep for the show previously branded the claims ‘nonsense’.
