'Shooting Stars' host Vic Reeves broke his foot after dropping 'EastEnders' actress Cheryl Ferguson on it
Vic Reeves broke his foot after dropping 'EastEnders' actress Cheryl Ferguson on it.
The 'Shooting Stars' host was recording an episode of the new series - which he presents with funnyman Bob Mortimer and will air later this month - when a game with the curvy actress went wrong, they got "tangled up", and he ended up fracturing a bone.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Cheryl and Vic got tangled up and he ended up really hurting his foot. Vic was seeing a doctor for several weeks after but his foot has healed now."
The funny scenes are set to air in an upcoming episode over the next few weeks.
This is the second time Cheryl - who plays frumpy and unlucky-in-love Heather Trott in the BBC One soap - has been in the press in recent days.
It recently emerged that the 44-year-old star - who split from her ex-husband Jamshed Saddiqi two years ago - is dating a Moroccan man who is 19 years younger than her.
Yassim al-Jemoni, 25, and Cheryl are said to "very happy" together after they met on the internet.
They eventually met in person after spending hours messaging each other online, and chatting through webcam service Skype.
A close friend revealed: "Cheryl and Yassim are very, very happy but it's still early days and they are not engaged yet."
