Davood Ghadami was taken ill during his 'Strictly Come Dancing' rehearsals
Davood Ghadami had to stop his 'Strictly Come Dancing' rehearsals after feeling dizzy.
The 'EastEnders' actor was working on the Vienesse Waltz with his professional partner Nadiya Bychkova when he took ill and his performance this weekend is in doubt.
A source told The Sun: "All the spinning of the Vienesse Waltz has left him with dizzy spells and sickness.
"He has been fine up until this point in the competition but this has knocked him for six.
"Producers hope he'll be OK for the big show."
35-year-old Davood's illness comes after rival Joe McFadden was left in agony after injuring himself during 'Strictly' rehearsals.
The 'Holby City' actor found himself in excruciating pain after his feet swelled following gruelling rehearsals in his Cuban heels and his professional partner Katya Jones had to take drastic measures.
A source said: "Katya needs him to get back to training and practice their dance so to help him, she has cut holes in his dancing shoes to relieve him of the pressure.
"His big toes are getting squashed and hurt in training and he is in a lot of pain while doing his routine this week."
