However, Stacey confirmed she is now well enough to perform her street commercial dance with partner Kevin Clifton on Saturday.
So far, the pair have sailed through the competition, scooping their highest score yet in last week’s live show, which saw her channelling Jodie Whittaker for a ‘Doctor Who’-inspired Tango.
The performance saw Stacey briefly taking over as lead in the routine, a first for a ‘Strictly’ Tango, and a nod to Jodie’s appointment as the first woman to play The Doctor.
Stacey is not the only celebrity to injure herself ahead of this week’s competition, as BBC newsreader Kate Silverton is also recovering after “stripping” the muscle from her rib.
‘Strictly Come Dancing’ continues on Saturday at 7.05pm on BBC One.
