uth Langsford has pulled a hamstring while rehearsing for "Strictly Come Dancing".

The TV presenter has put her appearance on tonight's (30.09.17) show in doubt after injuring herself while going through her dance moves.

In a video on Twitter, she said: "Just before I went down I was in my dressing room, I said: "I'll just familiarise my steps and make sure I know the routine and I kicked my leg out and I've pulled a hamstring.

"So here under there is an ice pack wrapped in a tea towel.

"Then I've got to have a hot bath, then I've got to ice it again, take ibuprofen and the physio said it's pretty sure it will be okay tomorrow.

Ruth found herself at the bottom of the leaderboard last week after scoring just 16 points from the judges with her professional partner Anton du Beke, but she admitted she was actually proud of herself because she didn't think she'd be able to remember any of the moves when she was watching and waiting for her fellow competitors to perform.

She previously said: "I can honestly say, I've never been so nervous - ever! I've done live television for 30 years ... but I think it was waiting to go on.

"I made a mistake though. The thing is, Eamonn [Holmes, her husband] did say to me: "Oh I did see you do a little trot." And I said: "There's no such thing as a trot." I have to say, everything the judges said to me was absolutely right.

"When I was on the sofa and Anton was walking towards me, I remember thinking: "I don't think I'm going to be able to get up." The thing is, I have handed myself over to "Strictly Come Dancing". You go in and it's very showbiz, there's glitter and everyone is rushing around. Actually, the dress rehearsal, if I could've just done that, it would have been perfect.

"Anton was fantastic. I was watching everyone and in my eyes they were all brilliant. And at one point I turned to Anton and I said: "I've forgotten the dance!" And he said: "No you haven't!" and I said: "No, I have." And he took me downstairs - I was trying to go to the exit - and he's so brilliant and took me away from seeing people."
