Strictly’s Karim Zeroual to dance as planned after bouncing back from flu

Strictly Come Dancing star Karim Zeroual will dance as planned in tonight's show after bouncing back from flu.

The CBBC presenter's performance had in doubt after he fell sick at the start of the week, pulling out of a planned appearance on It Takes Two.

However, he returned to the studio yesterday and was well enough to take part in the dress rehearsals.

As well as putting the finishing touches on his dance with partner Amy Dowden, Karim also filmed with kids TV favourite Hacker T Dog.

Karim previously said that if he is well enough for th dress rehearsal, he'll be fine for Saturday night.

He explained: "It started off with a sore throat , just a bit of a cold, (I'm) just run down, (I'm) really just working hard, I just needed some bed time.

"I literally just sat there (in bed), drank loads of water, honey lemon and ginger, but I'm on the way up now."

He added: "It would take a lot to not get me down (there) on Saturday, that's for sure. But that's kind of what I had in mind.

"I thought you know what, if I need to just have a bit of a bed day so I'm alright for the dress run on Friday and I'm alright for the show on Saturday, that was my main priority really."
