Robin Windsor's intimate injury
Lisa Riley has been dubbed 'The Nutcracker' after her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Robin Windsor sustained an injury to his testicles
Lisa Riley has been dubbed 'The Nutcracker' after injuring her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner.
The former 'Emmerdale' actress and Robin Windsor executed a leapfrog move at the end of their jive, but during rehearsals the professional dancer missed completing the jump and banged his testicles on Lisa's head several times, leaving him in agony.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "His crown jewels took a bit of a battering."
Both Robin and Lisa are finding this week's rehearsal tough, with both complaining of leg pain.
Lisa tweeted: "One cheeky glass of wine with @Robinwindsor after a long rehearsal day keeps me happy and also hides the fact my legs are KILLING me!!!! (sic)"
Robin added: "My oh my my body is killing me!!!! This dance is a killer!!!! And dangerous!!!
"I really need a new pair of legs!!! Mine seem past their sell by date.... Ooo eee ooo ahh! (sic)"
Meanwhile, because this week's show has a Halloween theme, the competing couples have been asked to stay away from spray tans.
Contestant Richard Arnold said: "It's because it's Halloween Week and they want us to look a whiter shade of pale rather than pumpkin orange."
