'Your Face Sounds Familiar' contestant Bobby Davro injured his leg while impersonating Sir Mick Jagger in rehearsals this week, putting his performance on Saturday (06.07.13) at risk
'Your Face Sounds Familiar' star Bobby Davro injured his leg trying to mimic Sir Mick Jagger.
The comedian - who is one of six celebrities competing for charity on ITV's new 'Stars in Their Eyes'-esque reality competition - is set to dress up as the Rolling Stones frontman for the second episode on Saturday (06.07.13), however, his performance is now at risk after straining his leg while trying to impersonate the rock legend's famous strut in rehearsals.
He wrote on Twitter: "Bad news from the Davro camp My ongoing calf strain has just gone twang again very painful Ill have to rest it for a couple of days Bugger ! (sic)"
Bobby later updated his 600,000 followers on his condition, revealing that he will see a physiotherapist to help alleviate his injuries.
He wrote: "Waiting for a physio to sort my leg out (sic)"
Although he may not be able to pull off the moves like Jagger, the 54-year-old star is grateful he'll still be able to sing like the 'Brown Sugar' hitmaker on Saturday night.
He added: "Singing well today At least my pipes are ok thank goodness (sic)"
While Bobby will tackle the legendary Stones singer this weekend, 'This Morning' presenter Matt Johnson, 30, faces an even tougher challenge as he will be forced to dress in drag and perform as Taylor Swift.
Elsewhere, former 'EastEnders' actress Cheryl Fergison will become Anastacia, Alexander Armstrong will impersonate Johnny Rotten, Denise Lewis will be Lenny Kravitz, and 'Emmerdale' star Natalie Anderson will transform into Britney Spears.
'Your Face Sounds Familiar' continues on Saturday at 7.30pm on ITV.
