Russell to go under the knife this weekend

Brave Russell Grant danced through the pain barrier last night... but he'll have to go under the knife this week. The camp astrologer, 60, nearly had to pull out of the show after tearing a cartilage in his knee, but he braved it out for fans.

Russell dressed as the Devil to rumba to Kylie Minogue's Better The Devil You Know with partner Flavia Cacace last night. He will undergo keyhole surgery in the next two days in a desperate bid to overcome the injury. Strictly insiders are hopeful he'll be able to continue despite the injury.

Quit Strictly? I’d rather die says Russell

Strictly star Russell Grant says he would rather DIE on the dance floor than quit the show. But he must still go under the surgeon's knife for an operation tomorrow.

The astrologer, 60, who collapsed before last week's show after his knee gave way, will defy docs and do the samba on BBC1 tonight. An MRI scan revealed a tear in his knee lining and he needs keyhole surgery. He will have a general anaesthetic but insists he will be fine to perform again next week if he does not get voted out.

Russell set for dodgy knee samba

Strictly Come Dancing's Russell Grant has said that a bad knee won't stop him sambaing on Saturday night. On his blog, Grant wrote: "The knee has continued to play me up so the doctors thought it would be a good idea to have an MRI scan to see what's going on.

"It is rather painful and I will have to watch what I get up to, but luckily this week's dance is the samba and that means a little less wear and tear on the knee."

Russell: Sadness behind my Strictly smile

Last night Russell Grant stepped out on to the strictly Come Dancing stage, his face wreathed in smiles as he took his glamorous partner’s hand and somewhat unconvincingly waltzed his way through his latest routine, leaving Flavia Cacace slightly embarrassed, as has been the case for the past few weeks.

Lapping up the audience’s applause, the standing ovations he’s had in previous weeks of the competition still ringing in his ears, he looked like the happiest man in the world.
