Strictly’s Nancy Xu breaks silence on bloody injury during Les Dennis dance

Strictly: Les Dennis discusses feedback from Nancy Xu

Nancy Xu has spoken out after shocking fans with a bloody injury to her neck after dancing with Les Dennis.

The professional dancer was seen clutching her neck as she walked up the Strictly staircase to be interviewed following her first live performance.

Nancy then spoke to host Claudia Winkleman and received feedback from the judges while dabbing the blood running down at her chin and neck with a tissue.

However, despite the injury, Nancy returned to social media today to update fans in an optimistic post.

Sharing a picture of her and Les in action from Saturday night, Nancy penned on Instagram: “That’s Week One done. Hope we did bring a bit of a smile to your face.”

“Hope your neck is okay after it was bleeding,” said one.

“What happened to your neck, hope you are ok?” asked a second.

Nancy is partnered with Les for the new series and he admitted this was one of the last chances for him to do the show.

He said: “I was in the mix for Strictly, and then I heard from my agent I’d got it, and I called my wife and she cried – but in a good way.

“She didn’t cry going, ‘Don’t do it!’ It’s a big challenge. The last few years, I’ve had challenges just come out of nowhere, like I did my first opera two years ago at the RSC, with no training.”

“This is such a massive opportunity as I approach 70. I thought why not?” he shared with Daily Mirror.

Les thinks the Charleston will be the trickiest dance for him – as he’s under strict orders to keep his heart rate under 140 bpm.

Speaking about his cardiologist’s advice, he said: “I’ve got to keep my heart rate below about 140, and I don’t know whether you can do that in a 90-second very fast dance.

“The Charleston will be a challenge, but we’ll see.

“I mean, my cardiologist basically said, ‘I can’t give you a hundred per cent guarantee that you won’t drop dead.'”

Strictly Come Dancing will continue on BBC next Saturday.
