Lisa Riley is rehearsing with Artem Chigvintsev on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The former 'Emmerdale' actress has been training with the professional dancer ahead of Saturday night's (17.11.12) live show at Wembley Arena after her regular partner Robin Windsor was struck down with a "nasty" stomach bug thought to be the norovirus, which can cause sickness, diarrhoea and stomach pains.
She wrote on her twitter account: "Thank you so much to @artemchigvintse for helping me today he's a sweetheart! I do hope my @Robinwindsor can come back! Miss him tonsandtons (sic)"
Artem - who was partnered with Fern Britton until the pair were voted off the show on Sunday (11.11.12) - stepped in yesterday (14.11.12) to help the 36-year-old star prepare for her next performance, and Lisa is concerned about Robin and desperate for him to return to action.
She tweeted: "I miss my @Robinwindsor so much!!! Please send him all the love in the world to get him better!! My day has had not one inch of CAMP!! Ahhhh (sic)"
Robin has been left "totally unimpressed" after he was struck down by the illness and forced to miss rehearsals on the BBC One show earlier this week.
He tweeted: "Locked in the house with a nasty tummy bug.... Totally unimpressed!!! (sic)"
